David Cole’s Hat Tip to the NRA in NY Times Op-Ed

Engines of LibertyIn his NY Times op-ed “What Liberals Can Learn from the N.R.A.“, David Cole explores the widespread grassroots activism that the N.R.A. has promoted in recent decades and how effectively they have galvanized the pro-gun political movement and changed our understanding of the constitution. Cole argues that these tactics can stand as valuable lessons to those trying to effect change from the opposite side.

The piece is drawn from Cole’s upcoming book, Engines of Liberty: The Power of Citizen Activists to Make Constitutional Law (Basic Books), which examines the significant role of citizenship activism in major recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions on marriage equality, human rights, and gun control.
