That’s a naive view of what a legislative leader does. We should be positive and reinforce his good behavior. We’re fast to criticize and we shouldn’t be slow to praise.
This is a good thing. Is it perfect? No, but it is a good thing.
Now, ask yourself, “Do I want more or less of this type of behavior?”
What harm is there in sincerely thanking him? This is a fight that we could have lost and could still lose. Do you really want more gun laws layered on top of the thousands that lay like a trap or minefield for lawful gun users?
Naive? What’s naive about expecting those in gov’t, who swore an Oath, to understand and defend the Constitution??
Better question is: Why the hell is XYZ still in office after 15+ years?!
There would be no harm in thanking ANYONE whom routinely showed and stayed the course. But I don’t congratulate those that ride the coat tails for their ‘bravery’.
Do I want more laws? HELL NO. I’m (L), I want as few as possible. But even I know your ‘benefit of a doubt’ in a party/leaders that have done NOTHING to roll back ONE (UNCONSTITUTIONAL) law/reg/etc. is misplaced.
There should be NO time wasted in choosing to champion Rights nor FREEDOM. That buffoon can’t articulate reason ONE why it should not even be brought up in the Senate.
