They most certainly will if it means they are not going to be able to put food on the table. Most cops don't hold firearms as a right.
It’s OK ..... the GOP will save us.
So, tell us what needs to be done to fix the problem. SPECIFIC THINGS, not generalities.
Pass the HPA (or its more libertarian version - can’t remember the name - which relegates suppressors to the category of accessories needing no regulation at all). Pass reciprocity. Restore the 2nd Amendment on COE land. Those three should be relatively easy - not without a lot of journalistic wringing of hands, but relatively easy. Now that the 2nd Amendment has been incorporated under the 14th (McDonald v Chicago), sic the Justice Dept on states that refuse to respect that decision. OR, like the administration is already doing WRT immigration law, withhold various federal funds from states that refuse to respect the incorporation of the 2nd under the 14th.
That’s four concrete things that republicans can do while they hold the presidency and a congressional majority, and they should do it, not giving a hoot in hades what democrats think about it, because democrats set the precedent for that.
Democrats absolutely rammed Obamacare down our throats when they had the chance - without any republican support, and absolutely unconstitutionally. There absolutely IS a precedent - set by democrats - for ramming bills through congress and into law. And yet, republicans can’t or won’t do the same to protect an enumerated right?
