It doesn’t cost the anti-gunners a damned thing to introduce bills. True, most of them will never see the light of day, but it’s the one you don’t expect that makes it through and makes your life a living hell. This is very much like how an inmate in a prison can harass the person who put them in there – they can file frivolous lawsuit after frivolous lawsuit against them. The inmate doesn’t pay a dime, but the target expends a lot of capital fighting them.
This is what is going on right now. They are trying to wear us out with so many horrific bills that what they really want will get passed when we’re too exhausted to fight any more.

[Back when the first pushes were happening in Illinois I figured this was their game plan. Distract, divide, and exhaust us by creating numerous issues at the state level we cannot as effectively fight at the national level.
We keep seeing little BS bills come up here and there and they all require our attention lest we lets one slip by and get burned.
I’ve got a post I need to write-up tonight. I just had some WA specific legislation roll into my inbox this morning. Do I think it will pass? No, but if we do nothing it most certainly will pass.
Yes it sucks and yes it can be exhausting, at the same time though we can start introducing our own bills to push forward. If we’re going to be stuck writing in about bad legislation, we might as well be able to say at the same time, please support this bill over here. Our enemies are fewer and not as capable at defeating legislation we push forward. Lets work this momentum to our advantage. -B]
