I fixed the quote "Never forget that your lawmakers and their staff exempted themselves from ACA Obamacare while having you pay for their insurance. "

Don't forget, they are representing the interest of the people when they make these rules.

Another pre-Civil War tidbit:

Those creatures cannot be arrested while Congress is in session.

Public servants my a**.

Thanks for the modification. It underscores their true mindset.

They do represent "the people" in their rulemaking; the people who count, in their view: the rule makers.

I was going to say trading SoCal to Mexico, for free, sounded like a good idea. Then I remembered it would mean giving Hollywood away.

Then it seemed like an even better idea.

Yes, just like the view that they are idiots for pushing gun control. They aren't idiots, they know exactly what goal they are pursuing. It just isn't public safety.

Just wait until more states adopt per gun and per round taxes. Illinois and some other municipalities have already adopted these "gun taxes." Even if guns/ammo are still legal, if they are taxed heavily enough, they will become a privilege for only the wealthy

Lest we forget Swalwell or ($#twell) saying either we comply or they'll nuke us in not so many words. Really Democrats, you want them come get and try to get them, enough is enough already. BRING IT!

Here in the Democratic People's Republic of Maryland, very little can be done outright.

Many times these grabbers get renominated by a slight margin. When they lose write and tell them it was their stance on guns Also, when you write them they will find out if you are Democrat or not and will respond if you are and ignore if you are not. 2) Support MSI and all legal challenges to MD laws in the courts, that is the only way we will win anything here right now. 3) Take someone shooting, your kids or a friend. You don't have to be a hunter to enjoy the sport of shooting. Education and experience and memories will help. My son and I stop for lunch on the way out and a treat on our way back.

Anything and everything people can do to protect our 2nd Amendment right should be supported.
