Harsher penalties for using a gun in the commission of a crime?
or would that be racist?
Bottom line: public does not want gun confiscation, politicians vote for it anyway.
Oddly, I agree. Molon Labe, I dare you.
To those who fear that a Constitutional Convention would destroy the RKBA, the present trajectory of government is in fact to do just that. And yet, instead of starting to even talk about the next peaceful option, some are talking about an option that is not peaceful.
Recall that any proposal of a Convention must be ratified by a super-majority of surviving states. A Convention would give us the opportunity to repair may of the defects we presently suffer from.
See for example:

Weak. Here in Kaleefawneeyaw we have 27 gun grabbing bills slated.
That’s the record.
Vote ‘em out. Every last one.

That phrase is about a irritating as packing heat.
Its important to write and call your legislators NOW and to write and call Chris Christies office, asking him to veto these bills should they reach his desk.
After release by the Assembly Committee, the bills go to the Full Assembly for a floor vote. If approved, they are sent to the Senate for review and posted to a Senate Committee for similar review before releasing for a Senate Floor Vote. Its not possible to determine which Senate Committee it will be sent to, but once identified the Committee members there should also be contacted.
If the Senate Committee approves them they are sent to the Senate for a full vote and if approved there, sent on to the Governor for signature.
If the Assembly bills have identical Senate Companion Bills and these have been similarly approved by the Senate, they can expedite the process. While most bills take several months to enact, I have seen the New Jersey Legislature ram through a bill in a couple of weeks.
Senate President Sweeney has an AA+ rating by the NRA despite his Democrat Party affiliation.
