There I go dreaming again.
I like that idea.

I hear what you are saying. I still don't think it is a "party" issue. Thinking of Joe Straus and how Governor Perry didn't proactively address pro gun initiatives and now Manchin aligning himself with Biden and Bloomberg. Democrat or Republican, I just don't agree that it is a party thing. It comes down to the individual putting principle over personal gain/profit.
Now if we can make principle and personal gain allies, all legislation can be passed. :patriot:

Re: Letter to Governor Rick Perry

Historically Texas was a Democratic state. It was a Democratic state in my lifetime and will be so again.
Historically the Second Amendment was not the purview of a specific party. None of the Bill of Rights were. To reduce it to a party specific concept makes it vulnerable.

Re: Letter to Governor Rick Perry

Maybe more democrats should be elected who aren't against the Second Amendment as well? Relying on one party is not the best idea (all your eggs in one basket).
