Skip to comments.Dem candidates embrace gun control in campaign for House takeover
Posted on 08/18/2018 2:28:02 PM PDT by Innovative
As the Democrats shift to the left on a number of issues from health care to immigration, theyve already gone all in on one of the most contentious issues around -- gun control.
A study by The Wall Street Journal found that of the 63 candidates on the House Democrats campaign arms list of seats to flip in November, 62 support expanded background checks for gun purchases.
While Dems have long pushed for gun control, there was a time when some candidates ignored the issue, included gun rights as part of their platform or even allied with the National Rifle Association. But support for gun control among candidates has hardened in recent years after a rash of high-profile mass shootings including at schools -- most recently in Parkland, Florida in February and Santa Fe, Texas in May.

Everyone knows the Dems hate gun control as much as they hate Trump ,LOL
Best news I’ve heard all day.
Has this every worked for them?
What was Einstein’s definition of insanity?
Geaux Democrats Geaux!
Promise COMPLETE CONFISCATION!
What could POSSIBLY go wrong, in the 2018 elections???!?
Predictable as a sunrise.
Dems typically do all the wrong things for all the right reasons.
Cool - now that their Antifa base is promising to attack and harass everyone who disagrees, they’re thinking about disarming us....for our own protection of course. :)
When the Dems lost the House & Senate in 1994, one of them grimly observed,
“Guns kill at the polls.”
So let it be this time, too.
Yeah....Democrats really care about school shootings (rolling eyes)
I have noticed some things in the Florida Senate and Gubernatorial races which I have never seen before.
Until now the Democrats would sound conservative in their races but then govern liberal. Now they are running as Obama liberals, gun control and abortion proponents.
I really hope it backfires on them, but then again we should be grateful that they are showing their true colors.
Keep your powder dry.
The old saying is “Be sure you know who’s coming into your yard before you shoot them.”
The other old saying:
“If guns are outlawed what will we use to shoot liberals?”
Governor General Frontenac on being told to reply to a demand to accept the terms for his surrender said his only reply “will be issued from the mouths of my cannons” (1690 in Quebec)
Complacency is deadly, but I don't know many gun owners who are complacent about voting any longer. Hopefully, we'll see a GOTV effort that looks like 1994.
Dem caandidates embrace the Ghost Dance.
I asked someone about Arizona and a FReeper said some new actual American Dems were moving there as well as the trashy scumbag aliens (noncitizens voting along with legal immigrants.)
I know Florida has had some trashy lowlife young Dems to go along with moronic oldsters who kept their New Deal,New Frontier and SDS and hippie beliefs into old age and voted Dem. Disgusting.
Did a lot of illiterate Puerto Ricans also swarm in after the hurricanes didn’t get them enough welfare money?
May I mention I loathe and hate and despise the Dems including in FL and AZ? Didn’t mean to forget to say that.
Yes, only one franchise of the Terrorist DemoRat Muslim School Shooter Kids Training Camp Network was put out of business.
They don’t hate gun control. They love it.
Wonder how many more school shooter training compounds there are that the FBI has been ignoring?
