    $2.5 million spent by anti-gun groups to flip the General Assembly. I wonder what right to bear arms groups spent in Virginia to try and keep it from flipping?

    When it comes right down to it, where you put your money speaks volumes about what is really important.

    Constitutional rights should not be dependent on the amount of monies used for or against them.

    I guess that they have gotten so used to looking down on us with their moral superiority that this is just how they think...

    Sure.

    I agree.

    Now, let's discuss reality. Money can certainly subvert constitutional rights. It can also be used to support and defend them. Which side do you think poured more money into the fight last election cycle?

    $2.5 million v. $X

    Well, maybe some of the gun nuts in VA said things that make them sound like stupid little children throwing a tantrum instead of responsible adults contacting legislators or just speaking in public forums about matters of public concern. I.E. the role of government and the protection of civil liberties.

    I see gun nuts spouting off angry irrational rants all the time online, and certainly that can give all of us gun owners a black eye in the mind of the public. And in the minds of politicians, and judges, that will soon be asked to vote on laws that are going to affect us one way or another.

    You're right, but people suck. The suckiest do what it takes to get elected, and then it's all about the mighty dollar. Every good man I've seen run for office has lost to a sleazball, including at least one in this thread (good man that is).

    We need a reset, but even with term limits, prohibiting profit from office, etc, and every one fired from office, people return to failing governmental systems EVERY time eventually.

    Maybe there was, but there is no reason to treat a group of people the same way. Not all democrats are the same, not all women are the same, not all of the Catholics are the same, etc. There is no reason to blindly treat an entire group of people as if there are exactly the same.

    Of course it can. I'm not being unrealistic. See you in court. The federal judiciary (appeals courts, district courts, Supreme Court) has undergone some major changes under Trump and continues to do so. And they will have an impact for decades.

    I hope you are right but remember we are playing against people who like to change the rules when they dont win so what's to keep them messing with the judiciary?

    They are responsible for the money. Dumb voters are responsible for them being elected

    If you're going to start throwing your pejoratives around again, why don't you direct some towards the legislators? Many of them come off as arrogant, conceited, pompous, self-important, egotistic, autocratic, insolent, contemptuous, smug, know-it-alls that couldn't give two shits about those who they supposedly serve.

    Maybe that's why some a lot of us treat them with such disdain.

    I'd get banned for life -and maybe worse - if I publicly stated my remedy. :lol:

    It seems like you can't even comment on social media as to how much you like Ringo Starr's "Back Off Boogaloo" w/o ending up on a watch list nowadays...

    The simply act of participation in this Forum has most likely placed each of us on several watch list. Et non carborundum
