Lest we get complacent
While I agree that it's not going to happen per its original grand plan, I do believe that the points made in the video are valid and absolutely worth noting. Also, as you mentioned, the UBG checks and mag cap bans are still a real threat. We must not let off the pressure. Stopping to applaud the demise of the AWB would be time better spent writing every state, federal and local legislator and letting them know that we are still here and we are still expecting strong Second Amendment support from them; not just yesterday, but today and tomorrow as well.This would never even pass the senate, much less the house. Too many democrats don't even support it. It didn't die just this week - it was DOA.
The background checks and magazine bans are more questionable.
I know. And just imagine the insanity behind admitting that they aren't going to solve the "real" problem with what they are putting all of their time and effort into. I think that's even worse than actually thinking it WILL do something to curve the problem.Joe Biden knows and told the truth on tape in that video.
I did. How wrong I was. How wrong we were.
Words to the wise.All that is required to pass it is for these people to believe they can vote "Yes" without getting fired. Many would do it in a heartbeat ...
I think many of us were lulled into a false sense of security the last time. I am not making the same mistake this time. I have been in almost constant letter writing and phone calling mode for the last two and a half months, and I will continue in this mode as long as I am physically able to type and pick up a phone.I did. How wrong I was. How wrong we were.
This current crop of anti-liberty attempts is worse: expanded, more Draconian, without a "sunset" clause. Witness NY's skulduggery, in the past month. Witness the train of anti-gunner bills just layin' there in both the House and Senate. DOA? Maybe ... maybe not. The only question is: are you willing to risk it, with complacency?
Yup. Disincentivize lies, deceit, malfeasance via real and painful criminal teeth in the statutes; call a spade a spade, by severely criminalizing breach of oath of office (which already is the case, but it's almost never enforced); and, hold them to it, damn the torpedoes. Outright attempts to circumvent or damage the Constitution should absolutely be treated as crimes against the Constitution. Until then, IMO, it'll never be taken seriously. We, the People, should be deadly serious about that. It's about time.This anti gun crap will only stop when the traitors that are sponsoring these anti-constitutional bills are arrested for treason.
Until we stop piddle-footing around and start playing by rules that they understand, it will never stop. It will only stop when the traitors are no more and there aren't any left to track down and put in jail. Unless we do that and start holding every single legislator to the standard oath that they swore to, these anti-gun anti-freedom proposals will never cease.
