Re: Line In The Snow
This morning on the lesser talk station, the host – Drew Lee – asked you about the approach your caucus, with its one-vote majority, was going to take regarding gun control in the coming session, given incoming Speaker Hortman’s statement that gun control is going to be her first priority.
(In a state with a muirder rate among the lowest in the nation – truly the extremist tail wagging the dog).
Your repliy seemed to indicate the proper response was to work with the opposition to find “a solution”.
I’ll make it simple; the solution is fight crime. Take everything that burdens the law-abiding gun owner off the table.
End of sentence.
The DFL – beholden as they are to millions of dollars in Bloomberg money for their wins in the election – will fight you on it.
We – the good guys, the law-abiding gun owners – will fight you a lot harder if you screw us.
Don’t screw us.
That is all.
