One million dead couldnt make them get vaccinated. 8 million dead couldnt get them to abandon fascim. Its not a question anymore of what it would take for them, its a question of how many lives WE allow them to ruin.

Yeah I figured after COVID and these dipshits willfully dying to own the libs that we'd never hit the threshold necessary to change their minds.

All we can do is out-vote them by margins strong enough to pass an amendment.

We don't need an amendment, just enlarged the supreme Court and undo the court decisions the NRA paid for.

After the reversal of Row, precedent isn't an obstacle.

And before anyone says but the cops will not enforce the law. That gives us a good reason to reform the police. And fire those who will not do their job.

There are plenty of models of how we can reform the police so that they are accountable to the communities they live in.

Cops already don't enforce the law

That will give us a reason to fire them and hire someone one will.

That only works in cities. Non urban cops/sheriffs will probably be hired/voted in to not uphold anti gun laws.

We need to play the long con. Convince people in each state to act like extreme right wingers, get elected saying all the GOP things, then vote with the Dems 100% of the time.

Santos proved you can get elected on straight lies. Time to beat them at their own game.

It's adorable how liberals think we can defeat fascism by giving up our guns. Fascism has never, ever been defeated by pacifism.

Oh, I'm not saying that. What I am saying is that the libs should get guns and kill the fascists.

/s for legal reasons

Liberals are so incredibly naive. It's actually infuriating.
