The brunt of the blame being put onto the GOP and the NRA is an emotional action.
How many times, and in how many ways do I have to answer this question?
I have no problem, personally, testing out in order to keep the right to defend myself and loved ones.
The problem is that once the camel's nose is under the tent, then the left wants the whole camel. That D&E abortions happen is one example of he left taking a concession and running wild with it.
The NRA caves and gives up rights for the American people, the erosion of the second amendment begins... and Americans are at the mercy of whoever else has guns. There are likely close to 300M guns in the country right now. What happens to them? Who collects and gets them on the rebound? How much does the black market swell?
Law-abiding, legal gun owners and NRA members commit how many gun-related felonies?
There is plenty of gun legislation, but how is parenting these days? How has the FBI been at stopping events it was tipped on? How secure are schools?
I understand that these are unpopular things to say here, but these are some answers and my final ones for the night. This situation is real for me, not what if or I wish.
