Kopel Says End of World Not Imminent...Thankfully

My friend Dave Kopel from the Independence Institute does a world-class job of handicapping Tuesday's election and outlining the implications for the Second Amendment in today's NRO:
Things look a lot better for the Second Amendment than they do for the Republican party. A race-by-race analysis of the Senate suggests that, while party control of the Senate could change, the Senate is very likely to retain a pro-gun working majority.
That's certainly good news, but we still need to haul our sorry butts out and vote Tuesday. As a libertarian of sorts, a Dem House and a Rep Senate seems like a formula for gridlock, which is a pretty good thing in my book. Maybe they'll give up annoying us and spend all their time (and our money) playing badminton.

Yes, but doesn't the thought of Nancy Pelosi as the head of the House puker your butt?

Nancy Pelletbrain just makes me want to vomit.
I wouldn't count on "pro-gun demoncrats" to do anything in the Senate except what Hitlery tells them. She's probably already threatened to 'disappear their ass' at one time or another.

If the Dems should get some wins, Perhaps Teddy could take Feinstein, Schumer, and Pelosi on a victory tour around some coastal highways: "Oh, look at all the pretty water..."
