With California's "sweeping gun control package" being signed by Gov. Brown, I found this interesting tibit from this article:

http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-cal-legislature-gun-control-package-20160630-snap-story.html

“I don’t know how much more blood needs to be spilled in our schools, in our community centers, in public spaces, until the members of Congress act and we can do this nationwide,” Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De León (D-Los Angeles) told reporters after the vote. “Until that happens, we will not stop moving forward forcefully to make sure that we protect our families, to protect our children, protect our communities. This is a historic day.”
Lawmakers said Thursday that they hoped the rest of the nation would see their action as a model for responsible gun safety.

“I think this is a strong statement that we are sending to the rest of the nation, that we are not going to stand by idly any further,” Jackson said.
If there was any doubt as to whom the enemies of Freedom are in this country, let them be put to rest with this statement.

It is clear who we should vote for this election, and what is at stake if we fail.

Yes Sir, it's not about safety at all, it's about the Liberal Socialists wanting to take control of the richest Nation on Earth.

I hate to be the wet blanket, but look around at your fellow citizens. About half of them are the ones voting for these guys.

That's why the armed revolt idea never makes sense to me. If the Democrats simultaneously own the presidency, both houses, and the Supreme Court, then it is the will the people that Democratic policies are implemented. Who would one shoot at to stop it? The majority of citizens? As far as I can tell, the SCOTUS is supposed to save the day, not allowing unconstitutional laws even if the majority wants them, but we all know they're just another legislative branch.

We are two countries, within the same geographical boundaries ... and we are gonna have to come up with an acceptable solution to that.
It's not acceptable for 51% to vote for 49% to pay their bills and accept their ethics and lifestyles ...

Anything could happen this year!

Tump is an outsider to the political machine which is a threat to both parties elites.

There's theories of a 3rd term for Obama which if things get stupid here, could happen. By stupid I mean massive protests, a major terrorist attack, or anything else that prevents the election from happening.

Here in California the politicians are going after gun control very aggressively which has a lot of people wondering wtf and as a result are arming themselves. It has several large cities with high potential for civil disruption and as seen in past I doesn't take much to trigger a massive event in which some groups see as opportunity to loop and smash!

It's almost like someone is setting up a game board!

What's funny is that Jerry Brown might veto some of those bills. #1 on the list is the one that turns bullet buttoned lowers into assault weapons. Once that happens all those off list lowers people bought over the last decade can be turned into the rifle Eugene Stoner intended.

It's acceptable to the 51% and they now rule. And their numbers are growing while ours are shrinking.

That our nation has been able to peacefully and orderly transition between leaders in peaceful times and in war, in good and bad economic times is somewhat unique in the world.

I agree with this. Who would stop him? Nobody! The Republicans have 2/3 of the power in D.C. but they have no Dicks!

It will be 60/40 at some point, with differences in reproduction rate and legal immigration. Man, I feel like it is so hopeless sometimes.

So nobody will use a pump action rifle with a detachable magazine in a mass shooting?

Or a double barrel and a bag full of 50 buckshot rounds?

And the criminals, who already break the laws against murder will obey the laws?
You are correct!

Not to mention the newest technology....Of the last 2000+ years

BOMBS!!!!

This country had the laws written to protect minorities, even small minorities, from being ridden over roughshod by the majority .. We need to start dragging our heels immediately, whether the great unwashed masses of gimmee-dats like it or not ...

Well said. There will be secession. It's a guarantee. Civil war? I sincerely doubt it.

Better hope Trump wins and will be the one to select Scalias replacement & probably 2-3 JotSC to follow, and the Repubs keep control of both houses of congress with, it is to be hoped, a filibuster proof majority.

The damage a Hitlery-selected SCotUS will do.......
