Beto mistake: Texas alternative to Assault Weapons Ban

Beto made a political mistake for an all-out assault weapons ban in Texas.
I believe Lamb's approach in PA must be followed in Texas for any chance to win. i.e. go very light on gun regulation.
I suggest a more nuanced solution;
Anybody can own an assault weapon but must keep it at storage locker at a gun range.
Or they can join the National or State Guard to keep it at home for a "Well regulated militia"

Gun industry should like the extra revenue to store them at a gun range. And Cruz can't rant about gun control.

2. You missed the part about TEXAS.

While you sold me and I hate the NRA but . . .
A. Those are national polls . . . not Texas
B. Again learn from Lamb's win in PA on how to win in red states.

3. Texas is a big state.

We have a diverse population and large urban centers. We have transplants from all over the country. We have young people here, too, who are waking up to the power of their vote. I say that Dems need to stop acting weak and scared about demanding big changes. Beto is doing great. His following is growing as people learn about him.
