David Codrea: "Lott’s Response to Demographic Impact on 2nd Amendment Silent on Immigration.'
"(W)hile Winkler’s conclusion (that NRA needs to get even squishier) reflects academic wishful thinking insulated from 'We Will Not Comply' enforcement realities, the demographic threat he identifies that will enable legislative and judicial evisceration of government-recognized gun rights has been completely ignored in Lott’s rebuttal. Lott does not address growing anti-gun populations, particularly as reflected by Hispanics and Asians, who poll overwhelmingly (up to 80%) anti-gun and Democrat. Completely unmentioned are the effects tens of millions of legal immigrants and illegal immigrants given amnesty will have in conjunction with the 'pathway to citizenship' being mapped out by vote-seeking Democrats and cheap labor Republicans. In truth, by stating a reality the establishment would rather we not notice, Winkler has given us an unintended gift. Rather than rejecting his thesis outright, we ought to seize on it and use it to defend against the biggest threat facing gun owners: Politically-motivated policies encouraging massive immigration leading to citizenship."
