    Folks,

    As tough as it may be, do not make this a Repud/Dem political discussion.

    The OP has presented information from NRA and GOA rating politicians up for election on their RKBA positions. There are politicians from both parties that are rated as pro-RKBA. We need them to see that their elections were due to their pro-RKBA positions and that they will be reelected if they deliver on their pro-RKBA stance.

    Remember that negativism and defeatism and partisan politics (outside of RKBA support) is not tolerated in Activism and your posts might disappear if you can't stay focused on how to make the OP effort work.

    I’ve examined Kopel’s article and analysis and here is how it turned out:


    Actual Senate losses: Colorado, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon

    Note: Minnesota and Georgia are too close to call, but at this point in time it looks like they will remain pro-gun. Similarly Oregon is too close to call, but at this point in time it looks like it will switch to anti-gun.
    --
    Actual Senate gains: None
    --
    Net Senate Change: -4



    Actual House losses: Arizona (1), Colorado (1), Florida (2), Idaho (1), Michigan (2), Nevada (1), New Jersey (1), New York (3), Ohio (1), Pennsylvania (1), Virginia (1)

    Note: California and Ohio are too close to call, but at this point in time it looks like they will remain pro-gun.
    --
    Actual House gains: None
    --
    Net House Change: -15


    While it is bad to lose any seats to the anti-gun movement, a loss –4 in the Senate and –15 in the House is far better than the worse case scenario of –7 in the Senate and –26 in the House.

    We did fare a bit better than the Republican party did, but they certainly didn’t have a banner evening last night.

    We must remain vigilant.

    Good information and a good summary. With the election over we can close this one.
