Politico, Chucky and Hillary’s mouthpiece says the NRA has moved to head off a gun control fight in Congress.
So much is self evident. The NRA has clearly decided to sacrifice “bump stocks” to keep Congress quiet. With some Republicans reportedly poised to emulate Vidkun Quisling, that may be the wisest course for this term of Congress.
But at some point we are going to be forced to fight that fight. There is no denying it, Bloomberg wants it, and wants us to lose.
If we must sacrifice bump stocks because there are not enough solid gun people in the Senate, then it is our job to replace every possible Democrat and weak sister Republican and replace them with knowledgeable embers of our own community.
And it is our job to keep our elected representatives, From President to dog catcher, informed and aware of the facts about guns role in suppressing crime, and gun controls role in driving violent crime rates up.
If we have a Democrat or a weak sister Republican, we must do our best to elect a competent and well informed replacement.
And if we have a local newspaper, we must attempt to keep the public informed about the real situaiton with gun control through letters to the editor, opinion pieces, personal contact, and other means. The oly way to change an editor or stateion news director is to flood them with so much officially sourced data they must finally reject restritive gun laws.
And the time to start all that is today.
