It’s tough to know what to post about today since the big headlines that general rightwing folks are pushing are the upcoming announcement later today about what gun controls New York will push and the Iowa lawmaker who is advocating for confiscation of firearms. That’s the problem with following the issue pretty closely. We covered Rep. Dan Muhlbauer’s comments a week ago, and we already knew to look for extreme proposals out of New York.
In fact, right now I’m trying to put myself in the mindset of someone who is reading today’s Drudge headlines and tweets from conservatives as big “new” news. I’m helping Sebastian with his legislative report to his gun club meeting to make sure that all the relevant bases are covered. When lawmakers are just piling on, it’s hard to remember everything. Obviously, it won’t be about issues in New York or Iowa, but we’ve had our share of bad things promised in the last month here in Pennsylvania or from our federal representatives. Many of these folks will be hearing about these issues for the very first time tonight.
