Prominent Republican Donor Issues Ultimatum on Assault Weapons
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/17/us/p ... apons.html
A prominent Republican political donor demanded on Saturday that the party pass legislation to restrict access to guns, and vowed not to contribute to any candidates or electioneering groups that did not support a ban on the sale of military-style firearms to civilians.

Al Hoffman Jr., a Florida-based real estate developer who was a leading fund-raiser for George W. Bush’s campaigns, said he would seek to marshal support among other Republican political donors for a renewed assault weapons ban.

“For how many years now have we been doing this — having these experiences of terrorism, mass killings — and how many years has it been that nothing’s been done?” Mr. Hoffman said in an interview. “It’s the end of the road for me.”
Last I checked, I am not able to buy an actual select-fire M4; so I don’t know why this democrat in sheep’s clothing has his panties in a twist.

His money does not buy us, our vote. He should have been wiser to call for NICS fixes and Mental health reporting when unstable subjects are known threats to others and seek weapons.

Bush is not running nor will be, so we dont care if he refuses to donate to Bushs non campaign every again.
There has not been a "Assault weapon " for sale openly to a public individual in a lot of years, many years before such a phrase even existed.
The Non assault weapon ban was PROVEN to be completely ineffective and had no measurable deterrence in crime.
Im very ok with this and most EVERY political doner refusing to donate to any campaigns... Imaging that, we elect political leaders based on what that have done which will be public knowledge
No words or opinions I post in this forum are intended to be offensive to any member here.

What a moron.

I must say, although the new has worn off of carrying, it is always a warm feeling to be armed. I’m trusted, as all free citizens should be, and I’m not helpless.

Guns have a very positive side. What’s so hard to understand?

That pinhead could withhold all donations to Republicans and give it to Dimocrats and it wouldn't make any difference:

Oh, So That's What The DNC Tried to Bury During Trump's State Of The Union
Another area of heartburn could be the Democratic Party’s rather atrocious fundraising hauls. Filed during the State of the Union in the hopes of getting buried, Ken Vogel of The New York Times picked it up where he noted the Democratic National Committee had raised a little over $5 million in December, finishing the year $6 million in debt. The Republican National Committee has no debt and raised over twice as much as the their Democratic counterparts. For 2017, the RNC raised $132.5 million to the DNC’s $65.9 million. Regarding cash on hand, the RNC has close to $40 million ($38.8 million to be exact), while the DNC only has $6.3 million.
The RNC has no debt and almost $40 million cash on hand.

The DNC has $6.1 million in debt and $6.3 million cash on hand. They could pay off their debt and still be broke.

When we have so many other things broken with our system (https://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson ... s-n2450382) don’t talk about implementing further restrictions on citizens, you useless out of touch nimrod. Fix the systems we already have and we’ll catch a lot more.
Glaring failures of the US federal government have at least partially enabled four of the worst mass shootings that have rocked the country in recent years. Today, we learned that in addition to multiple additional red flags flapping, the FBI received a specific threat tip about the Florida school shooter -- who seems to have been very well known to local law enforcement, too -- in early January. Weeks later, the deranged young man became a spree murderer. What happened? We don't know full details yet, but the feds are acknowledging that "protocols were not followed." This is absolutely infuriating:...
Oh you know what! The Senate has a bill pending, already passed by the House, that would address some of these issues!!

I have a bad feeling this time. Idiots don't help either.

Why doesn't the donor focus on banning the sale of cocaine, methamphetamine, or any other drugs, to anyone but doctors? Oh yeah.. It's already banned! Problem solved I guess.......

He's probably still butt hurt over all the money he wasted on Jeb!
