While this article is belated its still relevant to the on going discussion about boom sticks. There are people that think you do not have a right to them. So of course they are going to email each other to get all their ducks in a row.



The morning after the Oct. 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas, a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s press staff warned House candidates and their staffs not to “politicize” the shooting that day. Politicization, according to the DCCC official, included talking about gun violence prevention policy.




“You and your candidate will be understandably outraged and upset, as will your community. However, DO NOT POLITICIZE IT TODAY,” DCCC regional press secretary Evan Lukaske wrote to candidates in the Northeast. “There will be time for politics and policy discussion, but any message today should be on offering thoughts/prayers for victims and their families, and thanking 1st responders who saved lives.”


If you have to be warned to put your political bullsnip aside, and show some respect for the dead? That's pretty effing sad.

The take away from this is going forward. What has been done, What they claim they are trying to prevent being done?

Is nothing but absolute bull snip.

You,Your rights, Your children, Your neighbors children, doing the RIGHT thing?

Does NOT even enter in to their Rube Goldberg equation. It's all about THEIR power. Their influence. Their control.

But that's just my opinion.

What the hell do I know.

I retort.

Enter the cries.

Nobody who doesn’t agree with me can do anything right, ever.

At least we don't need someone to email us to agree.

Most of the discussion I've seen isn't people trying to take all guns, but rather make sure that people who shouldn't have them don't get them.

Vehicles are under more stringent guidelines in some respects. Requiring people to transfer registration immediately.

There's no doubt there were way to many instances looked over with Nikolas Cruz. But many are saying the whole background check might need to be revisited. I wouldn't disagree.

And I'm pro gun

DJT had to make notes to be nice and empathetic to the kids from Parkland. Folks see it and everyone goes nuts.

DCCC has to remind people to be nice and empathetic. Folks see it and roll their eyes.

LOL

Since when can't we have discussions in the United States? I'm not a Democrat, far from actually. And many independents feel there may need to be some things addressed.

Just because you don't like a topic or viewpoint doesn't make it liberal.

It's not that.

It electioneering using tragedy to take power.

Since that piece of paper written a couple of centuries ago said there was no discussion to be had regarding inalienable RIGHTS.

The email, seen in its entirety below, reflects the careful balance that Democrats have tried to strike as they strive to advance modest gun safety regulations and shield candidates in swing districts from the political price that could accompany comments about guns.


Yep!

It's for the children!

“If the DCCC is willing to give up a key issue and offend virtually every Democrat so as not to bother eight Independents in rural Missouri, they’re even more incompetent than we thought, and Democrats should be very worried about the midterms,” Glaze said.

No one is saying take them all away, but in some way those rights are privileges, just as freedom is.

If you commit a felony, say goodbye to your rights. If someone is insane, no gun, sorry about it.

The same document you speak of established a democracy where everyone's voice and input is part of the conversation... Not just yours.

I see you find some points of view as toxic or obnoxious. Similarly your extreme views on things can be perceived as such. Beauty is we all get to express them.

If this country isn't far right enough for you, you could always look into Saudi Arabia's immigration policy. We're allies so you may be able to get in.

Welcome to American politics? This wouldn’t be new to either party.

Nope.

They are RIGHTS.

Not privileges.

They're more than welcome to
, they still can voice their opinion.




And the sane portion of America will politely tell them they can keep dreaming.

Oh?

Funny how they have a first amendment right after committing a crime where they took away their second.

Of course both the 8th and 14th says Hell no on that.

But who cares, it's just a piece of paper people whipe their rears with.
