I try to stay civil about most things. Unlike my more demented detractors (you know who you are), I try to argue issues, not personalities.
So with that in mind, some take umbrage when I call the sides in the gun control debate “Real Americans” and “orcs”. It’s really fairly simple; either you support the Bill of Rights, all ten Amendments of it, the Second and Tenth along with the First and Fourth, at the very least in terms of their intent, or you might as well be a North Korean kommissar.
Anyway – the Minnesota State Senate yesterday voted on a resolution upholding the Second Amendment. And the DFL voted against it – voted against the Second Amendment – on a straight line party vote.
What this means is that the Senate DFL wants you to know that “we’re not coming for your hunting rifles and shotguns - yet. We just want to leave our options open”.
This photo needs to be sent to every outstate, exurban and second-tier suburban household in districts with DFL Senators. To the DFL, the Constitution is just a series of means to their ends, and “liberty” is a quaint hindrance.
