Couldn't agree more.
The initiative process is ripe for these abuses.
Remember how they kept saying "background checks are COMMON SENSE" and made it sound so REASONABLE?
Just imagine how the PR for repealing state pre-emption will be.
It's only COMMON SENSE to allow communities to draft their own gun laws. Communities know their own local needs best so let them do it. Blah Blah Blah.
To oppose that they will paint you as a fascist who is against democracy.
We need to get organized NOW to stop this.
I already have several good TV and youtube commercial ideas for these:
pre-emption: guy driving down the street, gets pulled over by a cop who asks if he has a gun, guy says yes, cop says "don't you know you just crossed over into XXXXXXX city? Loaded guns in cars are illegal here. You're going to jail." Or similar scenario with someone walking along on a sidewalk.
"assault weapons ban:" Show an old rifle breaking and a guy reinforcing it with an iron rod and some duct tape then a police officer arresting him and telling him he now has an "illegal assault weapon." Also, start showing pictures of AR-15s with hunting rifle stocks that were created in NY to get around the ban. Or show someone duct-taping a wooden handle to a long-barreled revolver.
