    It would seem that the political left is using a tactic out of our playbook. In this case it’s an outfit that calls itself BoldProgressives’ and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what it is when you spot “progressive” in their name. Note that they are running a petition campaign using a Kentucky “gun owner” who has no use for tactical firearms. In other words – divide and conquer.

    We can hardly condemn them for doing what we are, but it is important to be aware that they exist, who and what they are, and what they are up to. I expect we’ll be seeing more of them as time goes on.

    They've been trying that for decades.

    People are on to them.
