Posted on 09/14/2018 5:39:47 AM PDT by marktwain
The Democrat party has moved considerably to the left for the 2018 midterm elections. As part of that strategy, they have wholeheartedly embraced gun control as a winning issue. Here is a Democrat strategist explaining their thoughts on July 6th. Opinion from usatoday.com:
Since 1994, Democrats have shied away from gun safety believing that this fight is nearly impossible for Democrats to engage in and win because NRA supporters are more organized, energized and monetized.
2018 could finally be the end of 1994
Now, less than 125 days to another midterm election, the times they are a'changing. Obviously, there are vitally important stakes in this election, like control of Congress, and existential stakes, like defeating President Donald Trumps chorus of congressional yes-men. But theres more that this election could do: After almost 25 years, 2018 could finally be the end of 1994.
In February, NPR found (in a poll) that support for gun control was fading. They suggested that Democrats not use it as a major plank in their strategy. From npr.org:

Good let the yell it from the mountain tops.
If they think that I will submit to tyranny, they are mistaken.
“Common sense gun legislation”=”repeal the 2nd Amendment and remove guns from every American citizen except OUR enforcers”
Just like “Immigration Reform”=”Amnesty and open borders” and “Reproductive Rights”=”Killing Babies.”
Best news I've heard all day.
That’s a popular position...if they want gun sales to soar again.
If you are a gun owner and vote for a single Dem you’re nuts.
Look at the miserable scowl on that POS face.
More self inflicted wounds.
What part of “Shall not be infringed” is confusing or hard to comprehend?
Keep pushing Gun Control, Democrats.
It is your path to victory!
Man, I wish someone would take a shot at me so I could have superior moral authority. I mean, it doesn't have to be that close. Three buildings over on the same campus is fine.
Or, I could just hear about it on the news.
Sad part is that platform will STILL get almost 50% of the vote...
This Ping List is for all things pertaining to the 2nd Amendment.
FReepmail me if you want to be added to or deleted from the list.
More 2nd Amendment related articles on FR's Bang List.
They should be staging this sit-in to insist on building more mental institutions, D.C. needs a huge one.
They’ll never be able to take away from me my .2grams of black powdet. California lets me have that much I think.
Ban all you want. Who is going to come take them.
Take them.....who’s even going to find them when they are all buried 50 yards from the house?
Suck it, Democrats.
You ain’t taking nothing from me. I may not ever be able to access it....but my nephews will. 30 years from now.
Lost it in a canoe accident. Suck it.
And, if that's the way they phrased the question, a big chunk of the 46% could be ones who are worried about their rights being violated, not yearning for it.
All of it.
But I seems the courts just refuse to hear or think about it.
