At least that is my opinion. Is there any doubt left out there that Bloomberg’s cash made a difference?
I figure that by this time next year, Virginia will return to what is wat 20 years ago when it comes to Gun Rights or close to it. They may have a chance to revert their legislature in two years, but by then the damage would be great.
And Florida? My guess is that with Virginia now under their control, Bloomberg and his gang will focus on us. It seems a decent amount of legislators are terming out and that opens lots of possibilities for the Democrats to flip at least one chamber.
At the time of this posting, there were 24 Gun Control bills slated to be discussed and approved for the 2020 legislative year versus three Pro Gun Bills. I still do not see a clear Pro Gun leader in the Legislature who would be the lightning rod/battering ram for our cause. That means we cannot longer play stupid games or be plain lazy and expect things will go our way because Republicans are the majority.
We are going to need both a continued phone/fax/email bombardment to our legislators and a presence at the subcommittees. If the only thing they see is a bunch of Moms Demand Red shirts, that is where the legislators think power is now concentrated and will move towards them. There is no way in hell anybody can tell me there are no Gun Right people within 25 miles of Tallahassee that can take a few hours off their schedules to at least show up and say a few words. to the politicians.
And no, Tactical Fishing does not help unless you can find us a billionaire willing to go farther than Bloomberg on expenditure for our cause.
