Congress basically cancelled everything today, so it’s not a fore drawn conclusion the SHARE bill is dead. That said, political elites are never more protective of their prerogatives than when they feel targeted, so I’m not saying everything is coming up roses either. This isn’t a good situation to be in. It was assassinations that brought us the Gun Control Act of 1968.
Yes, it’s unfair that it was a raging lefty that pooped in the pool. You’re still going to have to smell it. Give it time to pass, then get back to work. Congress is now talking about bringing reciprocity to DC, for Congressmen, not for us serfs:
Under Rep. Barry Loudermilk’s proposal, members who are allowed to conceal carry a weapon in their home state would be able to in Washington. Loudermilk, R-Ga., said the problem is that the nation’s capital does not recognize concealed carry licenses from other states.
Scalise is majority whip, so he gets a security detail. If Scalise hadn’t been there, there definitely would have been bodies stacked. I get that because of DC’s gun laws, you can’t take a firearm into the District, but the solution to that is to trash DC’s gun laws for everyone, and then preempt them from regulating guns ever again. Those same whack jobs are out there among us peons too, you know.
Also, as for the shooting, it’s another example of how bad the situation is getting. Unlike Gifford’s gunman, who was out of his gourd, this dude doesn’t seem to be crazy and knew exactly what he was doing. I don’t lay this current situation at the feet of any person or group, except maybe social media, which I’m coming to regard as poison.
If you keep telling people you’re fighting fascists, that your opponents are literally Hitler, it’s OK to shoot them right?
I’m afraid that I find Scott Adams’ theory increasingly credible:
The bigger picture is that the country is living two movies at the same time, and Griffin was actingÂ â€œnormalâ€ in one of them.
And this shooter was fighting the good fight against the fascists, right? I’ve seen that movie too.
