    If you do a google search, you will find out Sophia is part of the Brady Bunch aka Everytown, or whatever they are calling Bloomberg's vanity project this year.

    Actually, Bloomberg shelling out a lot of money and changing the composition of the legislatures in places like VA has affected things. Candidates wanting money are more than willing to shill anti-gun talk in blue areas. Rural ones are much more reticent about it.
    What has happened since 2018, blue states got even more anti gun and were never realistically going to loosen firearms laws in the first place. It has been no problem for them to put more onerous conditions on it.

    The national Democratic party has become anti-gun and no longer tries to hide its sentiments as well due to donor and to be fair grass roots sentiments. Parts of the Democratic coalition support gun control because a) it is the norm where they came from and b) experiences with street crimes and gangs in their local neighborhood. They would rather blame the availability of guns instead of broken families, substance abuse, glamorization of the thug lifestyle by popular culture, lack of education and jobs, etc.

    The NRA is in trouble.
    The president and VP hated each others guts. The VP retires and the president resigned. The antis have been allowed to run almost unchecked from when ever all that drama happened.

    The NRA leadership did a lot of the damage to the organization with the latest internal scandals. Wayne LaPierre really needs to go before the NRA will have a real chance of recovering.

    It didn’t take long for this to turn into hate-the-NRA discussion.

    The Bipartisan Background Check Act did not pass on the Federal level. It is obvious that the author is a product of public education as she doesn’t know that a bill has to also pass the Senate and get past the President.

    It is also sad that some THR members are blaming the NRA for gun laws being passed in States instead of placing the blame squarely on the shoulders of gun owners who were to lazy or apathetic to go vote.

    It's an op-ed piece. Anyone is free to state their opinion, and others are free to disagree.
    Has nothing to do with NRA--it's just a drive-by trashing, but of course that's all it takes for others to be off and running.

    Nothing to see here.

    Wish-casting by an anti-gun National Socialist.

    The Japanese claimed they won at Midway too.

    Did that happen after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Sen. Blutarksky told me that one in college. o_O

    Nothing here to see and we don’t need another NRA thread that is just pro or con. We discussed this before.
