    Working on four out of five this year, but we'll be the targeted game for every opponent this year once again. The offense may have to carry the defense...

    We're not paranoid if they're really out to get us, haymarket.

    We can see what the philosophical brethren of these legislators have done in certain states (MA, NY, CA, IL, etc....). We can see what their cousins have done in other countries. We can hear what their supporters talk about wanting. It's not like these concerns come out of nowhere.

    Parts of this country are looking more and more like Europe, at least philosophically, every day.

    Which has nothing to do with any bill on background checks taking away your rights.

    Not directly. However, the acceptance of European ideals deeply concerns many of us. Especially when it comes to things like gun ownership and other Conservative values.

    America was in part founded and inspired by some of those European ideals. Many European writers were significant in developing the beliefs for many of our founders.

    I don't know about that, but they respect elections.
