Yeah, but also there is a good-sized portion of the population that just don't trust "the system". They see treachery everywhere. They don't trust anybody. I have even had people tell me that they don't trust Damon Thayer to follow through on his promise that no new gun control bill will pass the Senate. If you can't trust SOMEBODY what is the point of rallying at the Capitol? What is the point of lobbying your representatives? Why bother, unless you can find one that you can trust to tell you the truth? One of these people told me that he was afraid that they would "sneak something in" and pass it. Talking to people like that is pointless.
Trust, but verify.....or is that to lenient?I have to admit I'm one that trusts the system and people in it as far as I can throw 3/4 ton pickup.
I dont trust Thayer. Or when it's right down to it none of them.
The ONLY thing that has kept ky gun friendly is fear.
The legislature's fear of being thrown out of office, or passing some gun law that goes outside of the concealed carry area the ky constitution Grant's them some authority over. And having that lose in court.
With state a fed gov , rally's, 2A sanctuaries, contacting reps is NOT about trusting any of them.
It all about reminding them they are not rulers, that tyrannical laws will not be complied with and resisted.
And that they will be tossed out of office on their heads.
All that is about the gov having a healthy fear of the citizenry. As the founders intended when they insisted we the people be armed and able to throw off tyranny if need be.
Never trust a politician . He or she will bite you in the back while they lie to your face if it furthers their agenda. Unless he fears the consequences of his actions.
Hornback and red flag is a prime example of what happens when a official believes he cant be cast from office.
Trust, but verify.....or is that to lenient?
You mean slap their hand before they touch the hot stove?Never completely trust . Cant verify what a politician will do until he or she does it.
Better to let them know in no uncertain terms what the consequences will be for violating the constitution and their oath, before they do it.
