DT -Today is National Pancake day. There will never be a “National Firearms Day” but it matters little because ever since the Democrats and their winged monkeys in the media decided to exploit the Parkland, FL school shooting to promote their Draconian gun control agenda, guns have been selling like hotcakes! Meanwhile, some Democrats are starting to stress out that the big anti-gun push could backfire and galvanize conservatives by giving them a reason to get out and vote this November.
The Hill Reports:
"The party is galvanized behind the idea that Congress should take action on gun control, but faces warnings from some Democrats that reaching too far could drive away voters in the swing districts they’ll need to retake the Speaker’s gavel. Shedding caution, this growing chorus of Democrats is calling for extensive reforms, including a ban on military-style weapons. A number of rank-and-file lawmakers view this month’s shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school as a potential tipping point in the years-long congressional stalemate over new gun restrictions. Shedding caution, this growing chorus of Democrats is calling for extensive reforms, including a ban on military-style weapons. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) signed onto the ban as an original co-sponsor — a rare move for the minority leader prone to avoiding official endorsements of specific bills."
"Still it comes as other Democrats warn that embracing aggressive new gun restrictions carries risks, particularly in conservative-leaning districts where gun rights are sacrosanct."
"It’s one of those fundamental issues that riles up American politics — it’s up there with abortion and immigration — and they need to be very careful,” said a former Democratic leadership aide. It’s easier to demagogue on this than to do something about it and you risk overreaching."Up until now the left has had all of the energy and momentum but continued failure of party leaders to find a positive message outside of peddling anti-Russia paranoia, race-baiting, weaponizing the #MeToo movement and now trotting out the angry little Boss Hogg as their sock puppet could blow up in their faces if the sleeping giant of conservative voters is shaken from their slumber."
