Loridr, I think you are talking about something different than the op issue. There is a difference between a ballot issue, which is what the op is about where the citizens vote at the polls on an issue and when the general assembly creates a law by voting on it and having the bill signed into law by the governor.
states like CA NY and NJ are pretty much lost unless they suddenly develop a huge republican base. considering CA just added more gun laws. Cuomo is actively using his position to target any financial institution he can that has any connections to firearms. NJ governor is actively trying to ban bear hunting and they are actively trying to make all states around them enact the same gun laws they have. yeah it is a political stunt but stuff like this is done by both sides so they can gain or maintain control.Mebbie a good thing in States like NC and AK, MT etc but how about CA, NY, NJ etc??? I'm with John on this...don't like. One of those win the battle with risking losing the war kinda thing.
