Almost time to vote. For early and mail-in voting, it's probably already time!

GOA emailed members this week, they posted ratings here:

https://gunowners.org/ratings/

NRA ratings here (I guess you have to enter address):

https://www.nrapvf.org/grades/

(I like individual ratings, but the GOP and DNC have their respective positions on guns so usually voting is very simple if you support the 2nd.)

Some gun control groups are toning it down and changing the topic...

But Pelosi is actively promoting and promising it:

So don't let down your guard! It's always close. We need every vote.

Some good news too, if we can keep it up....

Public support for gun control is down 6% since March

https://news.gallup.com/poll/243797/six-americans-support-stricter-gun-laws.aspx

(And support for handguns is actually quite strong, but they won't talk about that, you have to read the fine print for their poll. I don't trust their methods and weights much anyway, but over time you can see a clear trend on that one.)

We can do this! Vote to maintain your rights and keep them for next generation. Also economy doing well, industry rebuilding, military working on regaining standoff capabilities with near-peers and patching vulnerabilities...vote to keep the nation going, and free, so that we can all keep going and be free. :)

DeSantis won Florida's governor race. He wants to see open carry for CCW holders in the state. Let's see how long the legislation takes to hit his desk.

It could come down to how much discretion any given officer in that county chooses to exercise...no? This provides the opportunity for every one of those cops who claim to "support" the 2A to prove it with their actions...or lack there of, to be more precise.
