Florida. The answer is simple: We got lazy.

Got this from The View From North Central Idaho.

Gun control is now a winning issue for US Democrats – in the key swing state of Florida it’s shaping up to be critical. Could it be the “Gunshine State” that helps end America’s love affair with firearms?

How gun control went from a vote loser to a vote winner these midterms

If you are a Floridian Gun Owner, you know this is not just because of this election year and certainly not because of Parkland. Gun Control has been working below the radar for several years now and probably pouring cash to the legislators. We simply never checked the asshats were being faithful and got taken to the woodshed for it.

I will even go as far as say that if we were to deeply investigate the finances of our legislators, we may find enough contributions to make their lives outside the political world happy, basically that if they were not to be reelected by term limits or election results, they did not need to care as they would be well provided.

We assumed being elected was a priority for our politicians and the Opposition changed that paradigm.  They probably made it straight about the money and a cozy future job or investment fund. We won’t know till it is too late.

And I am afraid we will continue to lose because simply don’t have the money and we won’t bribe the legislators. We no longer  have clout in politics to influence election because Gun Control more than likely found out a way to kill votes with cash.

Votes only work on election day, that is once every two years. Cash works 365 days, 24 hours a day.

We should start discussing other options ASAP.

PS: Don’t try to assign blame to this individual or this other group, there is plenty to go around and you would be admitting you did not do shit and thought somebody else would do it for you.

In fact, I am closing the comments on this one since I know some will get their undies all twisted up and not concentrate on how we all fucked up.
