People can vote in many ways. First off, of course, there is the ballot box. People can also vote with their feet. California has seen people fleeing the state in droves in order to escape the high taxes and even higher crime rates.

People also can vote with their wallets. A study from American University reports that an overwhelming majority of young people plan to purchase firearms. Campus Reform reports:

Sixty percent of high school and college students say they plan on owning guns at a later stage in life, an academic study from American University revealed on Monday.

The study results are based on a sample of over 4000 high school and college students. This sample size is far larger than your typical political tracking poll, which usually samples 1000 people. The sample is therefore large enough to be statistically sound, which is math speak for, “It is representative of the population sampled.” Considering how our political class is trying to score points off the tragedy in CT, this trend should give them pause.

Our Founding Father’s had a firm grasp of what is required to secure and safe guard liberty. We, as a society, have dismissed their wisdom. We may grow to regret this. For those who support the 2nd amendment, an “I told you so.” will be cold comfort.
