Don't Play The Gov's Big Gun Rights Bill Games

A point I made over at MGO, and thought would be good to share here as well:

Barretone over at MGO said:
Schneider does not want to appear to be "gun happy", so they are trying to consolidate the legislation, as that is supposedly more palatable to him.

No, he realizes that if gun-rights bills are small, focused, and tightly tailored, they are much harder for him to water down or defeat. Because if they are small, it's harder for him to get his anti-gun compromises swallowed by the sponsors. Also, smaller bills are more easily formally or informally tied to other legislation he or his allies desperately want.

The large packages are easier for him to get the anti-gunners ginned up about and give him an excuse to veto, or to get the sponsors to swallow a "little bit" of compromise and criminalize some increment of currently legal gun rights.

You guys have got to be smarter than this guy. He's really smart, and he will take every chance to take bites out of our gun rights every chance he gets.

Go tight, go focused, and go aggressive with tieing our bills to things he and his cronies want. If you play his game, of course he's going to beat you at it.

^^^ yep. Good Ole "Dicky Ricky"... he is in need of a new occupation in my humble opinion. Only time will tell. Hey it could be worse: Virgil Bernero could be in charge! :eek:

As I said elsewhere, I agree completely. Baby steps, such as legalizing church CC, would be good things to tack on to a bill he really wants passed.
