And yet Mark Kelly did ,in fact, get elected in Arizona.
You do have a point there.
He got elected without making a big deal about gun control. And he's downplaying gun control again this year. Not everyone is as clued in as we are. But if he actually voted for a gun control bill (especially one like what we're discussing in this thread), the public would be awakened and his political career would be over in Arizona. Just as Beto O'Rourke is unelectable in Texas, because of what he said about guns.
Funny how that didn't prevent the racist shootup of a kosher grocery store in Jersey City a couple of years ago...
McSally was a weak candidate. She has a great resumé but little charisma.
Should work about as well as flipping Texas blue.
NJ also requires a pistol permit to buy a bb or pellet pistol!
Agreed, but they would also be so overwhelmed they wouldn't/couldn't issue FFLs either. Millions would be waiting forever for a license to exercise a right.
Don't hold your breath. The way ISRA has gone off on a tangent, they aren't helping the situation any more. The FOID has been combined with the CCL - for those that can afford one. Otherwise, the FOID is still in force. And at least one legislator from "up north" is trying to either reduce the time on the FOIDs from the 10 year term they made it over a decade ago back to just 5 years AND/OR upping the "fee" to at least $50 (or more) from the current $10 fee. Go read some of the posts at illinoiscarry.com/forum/ and catch up.
Not yet, they wouldn't. But give it another handful of years on the current trajectory and the gun grabbers will have the make-up they need in the court. We've seen recently what waiting for the right time to challenge precedent can do.
I do however think that this latest song and dance is just testing the waters...with a bit of mid-term rally cry mixed in.
If they want to start a Civil War. Seriously, American are not hearing it.
I'm keeping an ear to the ground on this and other gun control legislation. After Tuesday, the landscape has changed. Seems to be more support for limiting what was deemed "Shall not be infringed".
I’m sure an individual FFL (essentially) would mean no more 4473s…..
The "Usual Suspects" are calling, again, for the 2nd Amendment to be repealed...
Or, 4473's for everyone and every thing.
The only way the 2nd Amendment could be repealed would be to start with a clean slate, via a "Convention of States." The mischief that would be unleashed with such an idea would be unimaginable. The precedent would be the 1787 Constitutional Convention, which, it may be recalled, was intended to "revise" the Articles of Confederation.
True, and I suspect they know that, but they want to put another “catchy” word into the mainstream. The catchy word now is “repeal”, like the words “impeach”, “defund”, “science” etc, that came before.
Even without repealing the 2A, they can ignore and neuter it to the point where it really doesn’t matter, like some states already do.
I know a lot of folks put their “faith” into the SC and their upcoming ruling(s), but I’m not so optimistic, especially in light of current events.
Depending on lawyers and judges to define what is clearly understandable to begin with is a sure way to be disappointed when the tribal tides don’t go one’s way.
It wouldn't get through the filibuster.
Isn't a Constitutional Convention organized by states, not by population? And takes 35 states to agree on anything to pass?
Isn’t it crazy sad that, in reality, only one person stands in the way of that not happening? I can only imagine the catastrophe if it weren’t for Manchin holding out for the filibuster.
