      Weapon of Mass Destruction and you might get somewhere.

      In the meantime, your Dems have to tell Heitkamp, Warner, Baucus and Pryor that they are going to be primaried.   And since Baucus has fled the field to K Street, we need to let Brian Schweitzer know that we have his back if he will come out in favor of gun control.

      We will never be free from fear as long as we fear the NRA.

        We could have his back all he wants but if he comes out in favor of gun control he will never win.

        In fact  the lack of the dems pushing gun control paved the way for a lot of the dems in rural areas to win.

        I can pretty much guarantee the effort to pass gun control by dems has ruined their chances in rural areas. Word is now no dems are to be trusted since rural voters gave them a chance and instead of keeping their jobs from going overseas, or raising their wages, they chose gun control.

        Huge blunder as far as keeping the majority. I'm not saying background checks are a bad idea. I'm for them. Just not a good idea to keep dem majority.
