Guns Are Killing The Republican Party

A Republican operative warns that the party needs to answer its addiction to firearms or face irrelevance.

Republicans need a message about guns other than the NRA’s “we need more good guys with guns” idea, which, by my estimation, would cost about $5 billion and impose a federal mandate for armed guards at schools rather than allow for local control, neither of which strike me as conservative approaches or solutions.

The Newtown massacre created a tipping point on the gun debate in America. The Obama administration and Democrats are moving quickly to reframe the issue and move new policy. As a citizen, I think it is appropriate and overdue. As a political observer, I think it’s smart politics. As a Republican, I think it’s yet another instance where the party, by refusing to recognize reality, is going to end up looking like the “stupid party” that fails to adapt and evolve to changing circumstances in our society.

The most frequent argument I hear from GOP colleagues is:“People promoting new gun control laws are liberals from the coasts who don’t understand our culture. And none of their ideas would actually have changed anything at Sandy Hook.”

Okay, I’m not a liberal. And I do understand “our” culture. I grew up in Colorado and spent much of my adult life in Texas where shooting guns is almost required by law. Deer, dove, and quail hunting is a right of passage in the Lone Star state. So, I own a couple of shotguns and a couple of rifles. And I had a.44-caliber handgun to defend against bears in the Colorado mountains, until I gave it to a friend, afraid that I was going to blow off my foot.(Turns out pepper spray is a much better deterrent.)

My question to Republican gun enthusiasts is: How would anything being proposed in any way impact what you do now with your guns? Or, is it that you are just hostage to the NRA talking points?

....And yes, we need to look all the contributing factors to violence in our society, including mental health interventions and violent media. But recently 11,000 Americans lost their lives in gun-related deaths in a year. During the same period in Japan, 11 died. And last time I looked, they play videogames too.

Unless the GOP comes out with a proactive plan that has some appearance of responding to recent events, then it continues to play defense and digs deeper the hole it has been digging for itself in recent years. On issues where the physics are moving irrevocably forward, like immigration, gay rights, and guns, the Republican Party continues to look backward. And backward is a sure path toward irrelevance.

You stepped right into Dave's trap, bigger point was that you didn't even know initially that Sec of State was a cabinet post.
All the rest is irrelevant. You started shit without benefit of knowing what you were talking about.
Which is typical of your weak assed crap.
So go ahead, accuse others of being drunks, sluts, mfers dumbfcks, etc.
Everyone knows exactly just how stupid you are.

Dave, Dave, Dave, you've no idea how ignorant he is concerning anything related to the equities markets!!
I've caught him in so many incorrect statements concerning stocks, it makes my mocking Flake seem small potatoes.
Example: Mid 2009, DJI at about 8,500, there's a couple of hundred point correction.
Nobraina goes nuts, tells everyone to stay out of th emarket until it falls to 6800, as I remember.
Needless to say, the Dow kept rising and never looked back.
Based on that, one has to believe Nobraina missed an opportunity to buy inn at 8k, and is still on the sidelines waiting for 6800.
ROFLMAO
And don't get me started about his backwards views of coal. He used to tell me that coal would always be the main baseline producer.
Well, guess what?? Today Natural Gas is stealing market share from coal at every level. Electric generators are shuttering coal fired plants as fast as they can.
Georgia Electric announced they will close 10 coal fired generator plants, and replace them with three NG plants in the next few years.
It's been like that for the three or so years I've been here.
Nobraina will no longer talk about coal.
Notice Nobraina avoids me like the plague, only claims that Tenzing and I are the same person.
Funny how the two people who really inflict pain on Nobraina are the same in his twisted mind.
I'm lovin' it!!
There's only so much NG too.

Coal WILL be back. It only makes SENSE.

Nobraina is right on this one, Carol.
It's a loser for your side, no matter how passionately you feel about it.
Your leaders use it to get your vote, but they've had 40 years to repeal it, and you got bupkus.
It's a shell game, and you're the victim.
Even Nobraina can see that.
The nation's moral standing is the victim.

If private organizations wanted to provide abortions under the table, so be it. But it should never have become the law of the land. Originally, Roe v Wade had a much narrower interpretation. It has become distorted to the point of massive genocide of the unborn.

Half the country stands with me. Half with you. It should not have become a dividing force in the first place.

How any society treats its most vulnerable defines that society.

Do you really think abortion puts us on a higher moral ground?

Interesting that the radical left is more concerned about the deaths of 26 white folks in a wealthy Connecticut town than they are about 500 black kids getting murdered every year in Chicago.

Gun control is as big a loser for the Democrats as abortion is for the Republicans.
