... to the funk.
Here in rural GA, I am saddened that my two senators, Chambliss and Isakson, voted for cloture on the absolutely useless background check bill in the senate. A bill that hasn't even been written (though we know some of the details of what's proposed).
I called and called ... and all for naught.
Why do we even bother?
The NRA, as 'much' good as it does, is damn near useless with regards to firearms rights. There is not one NRA A-rated politician who has proposed actually repealing any, ANY gun law now on the books.
No politicians have proposed a repeal of the Hughes amendment, even though there has never been a showing that legally-obtained machineguns have any incidence of use in crime. A fuckwad pol from NJ got a machinegun boner and just had to introduce Hughes, and the NRA has shrugged it's shoulders ever since.
No NRA-rated politician is proposing that suppressors be taken out of Title II weapons and sold without restriction.
And now, we have A-rated senators from a minority party siding with the majority in the effort to further curtail the rights protected by the Constitution.
Because the 'issue needs to be debated'.
We are fucked again.
