    Allow me to paraphrase you DiDi...
    We're losing the gun control battle because our solution doesn't make any sense. I blame the NRA because they are the largest group out there. Wah wah wah..."

    "A fear has set in that if they vote for the bill they won't be re-elected. It's that plain, it's that simple," Feinstein said during an appearance before the Commonwealth Club. "My view is they shouldn't go up to the Senate if they are unwilling to stand up and vote."

    They should be voting for what "we the people" want, not what she wants. And yeah, they should be in fear of losing their seats, if they don't vote the way their constituents want them to.
    Heck fire boys! Seems purdy simple to me. We're your boss, vote our way or hit the highway! I'll betcha the next un' will.

    Why would they have anything to fear if they where legislating with the will of the people. Oh, that's right they are trying to legislate AGAINST the will of the people.

    Nor do they intimidate Feinstein or anyone else. They are the false bogeyman that politicians hold up in just as phony a way as saying they're imposing gun control "for the children." There's a symbiotic relationship between the N R A and (especially) the DC politicians. Both play their respective roles brilliantly, but the fact is, it's a Kabuki dance that they all win something from engaging in.

    Actually, I feel sorry for the N R A in this instance. They say "UBC won't work without registration." It's the truth, but the truth only earns more phony accusations of them being "radical" or "intimidating" when they are neither. They say "A 10 or 7-round magazine capacity restriction would not have stopped Sandy Hook from happening." It's the truth. But the truth only earns them more accusations of being cold-hearted towards dead kids, and they are not anything close to that either. I relate exactly to this pattern. I experience it nearly any time I try to expose a truth that most people don't want to hear and/or accept. Sometimes it's about the N R A, sometimes about the economy, and sometimes about the Truth of Christ and the Bible, but I honestly do feel the N R A's pain in this regard, being labeled in a negative light for doing nothing more than telling the truth.

    I believe that there's only one entity that has the potential to intimidate DC politicians, and that is The People. The politicians and most members say that the N R A is the "biggest" gun rights organization, but that's not true by a long-shot. The biggest one are the ~85 million gun-owners who could literally bring local, and possibly even state and national economies to their knees if their true power were tapped. 4 or 5 million folks can certainly make some noise, no argument here, but they are not nearly as powerful as the N R A, its membership, or the politicians would have us believe. Diane Feinstein simply losing (for the time being) and then blaming the N R A when they did nothing but talk and generate emails, letters, phone calls and highlight already-existent public opinion from just a small percentage of gun owners, just like GOA, JPFO, SAF, and the literally hundreds, if not thousands, of gun and 2A-oriented websites like this one have been doing, pretty much proves she's just looking for a scapegoat. That's the N R A's role. That's Feinstein's role. They both play it well.

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...
