An analysis of the 2009 wins in New Jersey and Virginia elections. Ginny Simone speaks with Dave Kopel, research director of the Independence Institute (i2i), on the "Second Amendment wins" this election year. In both New Jersey and Virginia, candidates with "A" ratings from the NRA took the gubernatorial races, and the pro-gun bipartisan majority in Virginia's House of Delegates received a boost as well. Kopel says the most exciting achievement, however, was Chris Christie's victory margin over the corrupt, anti-gun New Jersey incumbent Jon Corzine.
