    As a DEM, DEMs should ditch Davis.
    Clearly, the middle of the Nation DEMs are running for the guns to stabilize their campaigns.

    Trends in the mid-terms for Gubernatorial races aren't looking too good for DEMs, 2010-ish.
    Snyder and Scott will tell me who wins this part of the election, and DEMs are getting ready to take a big hit in my state also.

    So far legal, but so-called "dark" money that DEMs are whining about, is pounding Senate races--especially over ACA--at the tune of 10-to-1 .

    hell even in the namby pamby liberal state of Washington we can open carry with no license, and a concealed license is only 50 bucks, no training required, strict shall issue law.

    Besides, I'd rather criminals think everybody is carrying.

    Are you going to attack someone that you know has a gun?

    Please tell me what I'm compensating for?

    Why would I trust the government with my safety?

    exactly.. the people who whine the most about honest Americans being armed are those who are afraid to make their own safety a personal responsibility and accept that risk. So they outsource that duty to the government and in order to cover their own timidity and lack of courage, bash those of us are like you and I

    Yet your going to run to a court of law of the state when a criminal action and or civil action has been committed against you and expect the state to enforce it.

    Wow. Wendy Davis is getting desperate.


    Good. She sacrificed her kids for her own political career. May that career now crumble to dust.
