27. When Democrats lose in heavily Democratic districts..

That tells a logical person that those Democrats are wrong on the issues. But you don't want to hear that. Instead you want to indulge in paranoid conspiracy fantasies about the evil "other". In fact you come perilously close to engaging in Eliminationist rhetoric.

There are Democrats who support the RKBA. They are not willing to support Democrats who attempt to abridge that right. All Giron and Morse had to do was vote against the gun bills, and they would still be in office. But they chose not to do that and we see the consequences. Furthermore, both her and Morse refuse to accept that it was their own fault. Politicians who lose seldom do.

I have seen very few politicians ever say:

"I was obviously wrong on the issues, and that is why the voters tuned me out of office."

And you can't say that either. You probably never will able to do so. No matter how many elections supporting an issue costs them, people like you and Morse, still feel "that they are in the right."
