There is also a temporary forum for discussing things that hurt Dems last month... http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512637396 Fri, 02 Dec 2016 03:16:53 This is *exactly* the type of misunderstanding that is so harmful to Dems on this issue. http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512637287 Fri, 02 Dec 2016 02:14:32 That was understood as pandering to the zealots; he made no real moves against gun owners. http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512637225 Fri, 02 Dec 2016 01:33:54 I'm not a Repub, and legislating rifle stock shape doesn't prevent suicides. http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512637178 Fri, 02 Dec 2016 01:13:07 If carry prohibitions were limited to actual carry while at a bar/drinking, or carry while impaired, http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512637122 Fri, 02 Dec 2016 00:54:08 Well, you could go after misuse, rather than responsible ownership. http://www.democraticunderground.com/10028323518 Fri, 02 Dec 2016 00:23:10 Thank you!! I was looking for your post in the old DU archives, but wasn't able to find it. http://www.democraticunderground.com/1172200940 Thu, 01 Dec 2016 23:55:33 So what happens if you get your wish? http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512637001 Thu, 01 Dec 2016 23:50:25 So you don't, in fact, want to ban AR-15's and over-10-round magazines? http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512636975 Thu, 01 Dec 2016 23:29:15 Promising to take laws like the NY SAFE Act nationwide *is* a threat. http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512636951 Thu, 01 Dec 2016 23:14:39 *After* the 2012 election. The results of that shift fell out in the 2014 midterms. How'd that go? http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512636935 Thu, 01 Dec 2016 22:57:27 I said they were *a* huge issue in a lot of swing states this year, as in 2000 and 2004. http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512635976 Thu, 01 Dec 2016 13:19:30 To use nuance, you have to *understand* the issue, which many in the DC/NY bubble apparently do not. http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512635199 Thu, 01 Dec 2016 00:57:11
