This is exactly the time for this concern! (There is no “argument” to it. Nothing to debate here. The fact of what is going on with NRA supported candidates going soft is fact). You don’t wait until it is too late! Giving even a little ground only leads to bigger problems and loss of rights. The only reason someone would not be aware of this reality is if they were living in a cave for the past 30 years. Or...if they were one of those who is also soft on protecting our rights to own guns...
Let’s concentrate on the attack from the Left at the moment. When that has lessened or temporarily abated, then we can have a knock down, drag out internecine squabble.
I just want to prioritize. Besides, politics makes for strange bed fellows as you should well know.
Stop the Left first, then straighten out our side after.
