We shouldn't forget how the Republicans took over so many states. It was really quite simple for Them. They put all their eggs into the state basket, told their lies and won the elections. At the same time the Democrats were busy winning federal elections the Republicans were busily taking over states and gerrymandering the hell out of them. Then, suddenly, the dems realized what had happened, after the fact, and are now working to take back what they once had and its a battle all the way because they also allowed the lies to permeate all media to the point where people learned how the new reality was now their reality irregardless of common sense, personal interest, truth or even science.

I must get 20 emails a day from various groups on the left trying to scare me into giving them money even though they have yet to actually explain what, exactly their plans are, what their goals are, what they believe in, etc. They are, as far as I can tell dedicated to ignoring any and all claims from the right, selling causes instead of a life view, beliefs, etc. The right, on the other hand, are experts in ignoring any basics and moving right on to hot buttons to push with lies and a lot of money. (most of which the dems nobly try to ignore).

That's some damn good observation and advice.

It's actually a good way to get killed by the police. When they show up, they want absolute control of the situation. Non-police running around with guns look just like suspects.

Sounds like a mantra for people who know they are on the wrong side of the debate.

Brought to you by the "No president should be allowed to seat a Supreme Court justice in the last year of their presidency" folks, or was it the "No Democrat should be allowed to seat a Supreme Court justice" folks?

How about this. Contact your state elected to pass a law allowing only state residents to buy a gun?

Turns out the guy in Texas checked the box on his form in the gun shop that says: "No Convictions", even though he spent a year in jail for domestic violence.

Way to go, Texas! That's the NRA's version of a background check!
