I was talking about this in HBAR law thread. We need to a better job of creating new 2A supporters, attempt to win over those who are mildly 2A, and go after these gun grabber's seats. The gun grabbers will only get more emboldened unless they feel like they will lose their office.

California's gun seizure program hits hurdles

Authorities in California are struggling to enforce a state law that permits officials to seize firearms from people with previous criminal convictions or mental health issues – running into staffing and budgetary issues that have contributed to a massive backlog of guns marked for confiscation.

The law, which was passed in 2013 following the shooting at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook elementary school and set aside $24 million for seizure programs, had a goal of confiscating around 20,000 guns over three years. But six years later, according to a San Francisco Chronicle report, there are still roughly 9,000 of those guns out there, with more being added to the list yearly...
Talk about a high pressure, low pay job!

Like these ideas. I might try the Dem primary effort. 2 and 3 are a given!

The 2A became a “regulated privilege” in 1934.

The reality is that there is little if any impact of the 2013 legislation on the Baltimore murder rate.
Somewhat True. It is incarceration rate movement nationally and regionally that correlates and in fact is causal on violent crime rates. DC had 2,5000 people locked up five years ago and 1,500 today. This is exactly the pool of both murder perps and murder victims.

Relaxed gun laws DO correlate to less crime when you do full controls for data and demographics, but given how many less people were incarcerated in Baltimore 2015 than prior years -- that overrides. A lot more more felons released onto the streets will override any benefit of realaxed gun control.

And it was not only Baltimore gun homicide that went up, there were more knife and beating murders too.

So I've been a DINO all my adult life. Has served me well for the 30 plus years I've lived in MD. Gives me some semblance of political power during primaries by being able to choose the lesser of two evils. And you get a little more juice when writing to a Democrat politician.
It is a complicated issue. Best strategies and expectations should differ you live in a "safe" red, "safe" blue", purple or transitioning district.

For example people who live in a >20 red PVI ( https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped..._Districts.png ) should not be whining about people voting for Susan Collins in Maine or going ballistic about some of he positions when she is relatively a net positive, and the alternative is a Democrat in the pocket of Bloomberg. Collins voted to confirm Kavanaugh in a very close vote, her being in office means the GOP controls the agenda of all the Senate committees, etc.

In your case if you register as a Dem, you get to vote in the only election that matters: the Democratic primary. There may be very sharp differences between two democrat contenders a half dozen issues important to you from school policy, tax policy, development in your area, criminal justice and policing. Once politics gets local it goes beyond abstract and the effects can be direct and practical even between two Democrats. You then can still of course vote GOP in the general election. That is what I do in DC.
