Not so fast Peaches!
Jeff Flake’s position changed due to the deteriorating situation on the border. I refer you to Katie Pavlich’s book “Fast and Furious, Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and its Shameless Cover Up” for an exhaustive explanation.
Since 2007, when Flake wrote the op-ed Obama took office and declared war on the second amendment by walking 2000 guns into Mexico, all the while illegal’s poured into this country faster than I can pour Pinot Grigio.
When the dust settled, we had two dead patriots and untold dead Mexican civilians. As I understand it, Flake’s position “flip-flopped” (so liberals can pay attention) after four years of realizing the border needs to be sealed. Until then, everything else is off the table.
