there is nothing confusing about republicans drafting and passing gun restriction laws.
the mantra here on above top secret is that it is only democrats that are chipping away at the 2nd amendment. that simply is not true.
both "parties" want to chip away at our rights.
until the american people realize this fact; we are on a fast track to losing a lot more than gun rights.

Strangely, my post was removed for telling you that you're wrong...this is the mud-pit after all.
Many multiples of studies on the consensus on athropogenic global warming are between 90 and 100%.
So feel free to apologize to me whenever you figure out how.
3.2. Endorsement percentages from self-ratings
We emailed 8547 authors an invitation to rate their own papers and received 1200 responses (a 14% response rate). After excluding papers that were not peer-reviewed, not climate-related or had no abstract, 2142 papers received self-ratings from 1189 authors. The self-rated levels of endorsement are shown in table 4. Among self-rated papers that stated a position on AGW, 97.2% endorsed the consensus. Among self-rated papers not expressing a position on AGW in the abstract, 53.8% were self-rated as endorsing the consensus. Among respondents who authored a paper expressing a view on AGW, 96.4% endorsed the consensus.
