Let 'em push as much of that BS as they care to. a goodly number of Dems have already taken steps to arm themselves in the face of Obama's flogging of the issue. Youall remember how he was the Gun Salesman of the Year for many years during his presidency.

Meanwhile more states have gone from Shall Issue to Constitutional Carry. Everyone knows that hard left radicals contributed to the failed Blue Wave; this grandstanding will fail for lack of support in the House, will fail in the Senate, and will be vetoed by Trump. It will serve to irritate and frighten those new 2A supporters, and continue to shove moderate Dems into becoming Independent or even Republican voters.

We are in MD, and like our brothers and sisters in NJ, NY and CA we suffer from a deserved case of BGOS, so it's hard to look outside the bars of our cells to see what's going down in America. As flagrant Leftist violence keeps flaring up due to Trump Derangement Syndrome, folks will be much les inclined to give up their means of protection.

At least, that's how I read it now. Hope I'm right. But the pendulum does seem to be swinging back toward the center these days.

They were all, and I do mean ALL, under the strictest orders (from Schumer particularly) to NOT EVEN MENTION the “g” word leading up to the mids.. Surely everyone remembers zero discussion about guns for the last 3-4 months ...

They DO learn from their past brushes with LaPierre and Cox & Co.

Now that the mids are over it’s safe for them to harp about again, right up until they receive the “absolute Silence on the 2A!” cue from Schumer & Soros, likely sometime in the summer of 2020.

Til then, they (and their lackeys in the MSM) are gonna flog “common sense” gun control every chance they get.

This is my thought too. There's a lot of press today discussing the success of MDA supported candidates this last week. Their objectives are the same, but they've rebranded their approach to better deceive folks who lean 2A but are receptive to gun control. I think the Democrats want to build on this in 2020 and 2022 (in 2022, the Senate seats in play make it easier for the Senate to flip back). They're playing the long game. With big enough margins in the House and Senate, they won't have to worry about not having the support of red state Democrats. If they are in this position in 2022, I would expect national "assault" weapons bans and above 10 rd capacity mag bans should they take control (as well as background checks closer to what MD does).

I'm bothered by the losses in Senate races in Montana, possibly in Arizona (for Flake's seat), and possibly in Florida - in part because the Democrats had far more money this election cycle to pound on Republican candidates before election day and fight in the close races after Tuesday (they have teams of lawyers moving in the contested elections). Wins in close races matter, and they seem much more disciplined in getting it done these midterms.

Totalitarian regimes and parties such as the Democrat Party march in locked goose step far better than any other types. Getting Republicans to work together is akin to herding cats.

Any gun control bill even heard on the Senate floor is a betrayal of the public. I expect the Dems to go full crazy but I equally expect the GOP to ignore them.

Adding in the insanity in AZ, FL, GA elections; I can’t help feeling we’re inching to the tipping point. Especially with cherry picked stats like “61% support gun control” yeah no duh, nationwide polling will always reflect what CA thinks, they outnumber everyone.

Oh Oh, look out non-resident permit holders.
FL already will not honor non-resident permits, outside of their own. IIRC, FL law is written so if another state honors them, they must honor the other state. There should be no wiggle room to pull any shenanigans.

Republicans need to start planning and acting NOW to pursue in 2020 the most aggressive Democrat control in decades.

Right down to local school boards, which is where it all starts.

They can call for whatever gun control they want but it’s going nowhere in a Republican controlled Senate.

Speaking of NJ........

Doesn't matter. In fact, maybe that's what they want: An issue to regain the Senate and the WH in 2020 after more mass shootings.
