    They can “vow” all they want but until they get the required signatures needed by law it ain’t gonna happen.

    " The campaign should be able to use the signatures they’ve already collected for the 2022 effort, she said."

    This quote is a little disturbing. Can they use signatures from this failed attempt in their future attempts? That would be a definite head start for 2022.

    Whatevs. Even if they got it on the ballot, and even if it passed.... It will be challenged in court on a Constitutional basis... PLUS... we ain't complying, PERIOD. No. Really. We're not.

    I doubt that would be legal but even if they did they would still need, well I forget the exact number they already have and don't feel like looking it up but if memory serves, over 500,000 more then they got this time around and I don't see that happening. Doesn't mean we should stop fighting it.

    These ballot initiatives need to be outlawed.
    Tyranny of the majority is still tyranny.
    If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

    -- Samuel Adams

    The whole purpose of the Bill of Rights is to protect against the tyranny of the majority. The authors realized how people are.

    People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it.
    And that's the point. Look what happens when there's a shooting - even the rare unbiased poll shows support for gun control trend upward to dangerous levels. Well, a dangerous level of support for gun control is any number greater than zero but bear with me. It's that window where the government tries to strike. Parkland was a perfect ****storm. It was an election year, the government was in session, and the governor had aspirations for higher office. The bills are all pre-written, and all they do is change the dates and sprinkle in some new words, and reintroduce it. Had they waited til say June or July or the fall, the bills probably would have failed. The same polls that show support for gun control peter off even weeks after. Because that's how people are.

    Anyways, the Constitution and BoR were crafted to be specifically resistant to the changes in the weather so to speak. It's why it takes an insane level of effort to amend the Constitution. It's also why legislators take the easy route, and craft blatantly unconstitutional laws and just hope it survives the legal challenges, if any are bought to begin with. It's scary how many mundane laws are unconstitutional and even immoral. The gist of a law is that it's authors and supporters are willing to order the death of a violator if it comes down to it. If laws weren't threats, why are law enforcement officers armed?
