    Yes, we're going to buy AR's & AK's to defend ourself against YOU, then turn them in to you.
    These people are like high-schoolers.
    And they keep mentioning "hunting".
    You can't "hunt" anything but a wolf and squirrels with an AR.
    They're meant to kill those that would try and steal them & our rights to protect ourselves.

    O'Rourke and Booker are openly campaigning for gun confiscation. Neither will win the nomination.

    It's f'n ridiculous that politicians and anti-gun groups are openly calling for confiscation. They use to be afraid to do so because they thought the American public was too stupid to realize they were going for a death by 1000 cuts approach to banning guns. At least they are being honest about it now so we can vote them out.

    "Bring them into the conversation"

    The conversation:
    Gun grabbers: "Let's compromise. I want to ban AR-15's, ban magazines over ten rounds, and put universal background check at the federal level (aka a gun registry)."
    Gun owner: "What do I get?"
    Crickets: "Nothing."

    Compromise.

    Think these politicians forget there was a time where 2 of them would go out back and duel.
    It's high time we brought that back.
    That goes for wars too.
    You 2 wanna go fight, pick an aircraft carrier deck and go at it.

    The reason we have madness, is because government involvement.
    Let "we the people" deal with thieves, murderers, rapists, mass shootings, eminent domain, self-medication, taxes.
    It's starts in the home and government needs to find their way out of ours and quit handcuffing parents and citizens.

    Seriously, how could this clown ever be elected? Are Texans that detached?

    Maybe but it's equally reasonable that seeing your hometown get shot up following a string of similar incidents might just change one's mind.

    Detachment is probably part of the problem. Texas has one of the lowest voter turnouts out of all states, and that is mostly the younger gen of registered voters. The trend with the past few election cycles has been that only like 20% or 30% of the 15+ million registered voters actually cast a ballot. People continue to register, but then many don't bother to vote.

    There are exceptions, such as the 2016 presidential election which had a much higher turnout than normal. But in general, a lot of registered Texas voters don't seem to give a shit or can't be bothered to go vote. At election time there are these pushes to get new potential voters registered. What they should be focusing on is getting already registered voters to actually go do it.

    That doesn't really answer your question on how he got elected.....but it is a glaring issue.

    agree.

    but if someone is that prone to detaching from reason when making risk/value judgments, he probably shouldn't be running the nation.

    Maybe, but...
    If Beto weren't out there calling for my forced disarming, I'd have a conversation with you about all the things I'd concede on the gun debate. An assault weapons ban isn't one of them, but a higher bar is. His call makes me not want to budge, as he attempts to shift the overton window on gun control.

    DC v Heller was supposed to take a gun ban off the table such that we could quit at the extremes and get some work done. For years the threat of fed gun bans kept people entrenched...not one inch. And I was very happy to see DC versus Heller with a hope that we could see some movement. I I fully acknowledge the vacuum that has been created and as such the pendulum is swinging. I said the same thing in other posts for years, that gun owners need to take lead on this or a Beto character will take it.

    I suspect that constitutionally you can't come take my gun from me. Biden made reference to this. it is the reason that you can't ban automatic weapons but just make their transfer very difficult. It is why Kamala is referencing the importation of AR-15s. Which doesn't do anything since so many are made here anyways. You can stop new ones, you can't take them from me I believe. But I'm no lawyer.

    But that's no matter. This type of grandstanding resets us back to heavy entrenchment and inaction.
