Democrats Mis-Read America

 On the one hand:

Democrats’ Unprecedented Embrace of Gun Control

The party is betting that support for restrictions is more likely to attract moderate voters than turn them off.

But, on the other hand.

Nearly 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the very first time in 2020. NSSF surveyed firearm retailers which reported that 40 percent of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm.

Gun sales are booming, at an all-time high.  And, a sizable number of those sales are to people who have never previously purchased a firearm. 

The American people are looking for security right now.  The Democrats would do well to shut up about any type of gun control.  But, if they think it's a winning message, they should go for it.

One of these days, the left will go too far and normal Americans will go for their guns and start shooting just as our forefathers did in 1775. Inevitable.

There are those that would argue we are going through that rubicon at this very moment good Sir!
Obviously I agree with your assessment.

Hope y'all are okay. I know there are some power issues down there.

Pawpaws youngest here. He and Momma are doing just fine. They were out of power for about a day and a half, but its back on and he only sustained minor property damage (a downed fence). Laura was a Category 2 when it hot his place. 87 mph sustained winds with 100 mph gusts for about 3 hours. It was touchy for a bit, but they came out mostly unscathed. The rest of the family fared well too. My brother didn't have any damage, and my sister only lost a storage shed. Nephew was activated in the guard and is pulling checkpoint duty in 12 hour shifts. Pops says he works, comes home, eats, sleeps, and starts all over. They all have power again. Pops is out of internet so he won't have updates until it gets restored. Thanks for all the well-wishes and prayers guys.

Many thanks for the update! There were more than few folks concerned.
Happy to hear that the damage, at least for your family, was relatively minor.
