So, when last the GOP met, the Democrats were threatening to attack them over SB 43 by highlighting an employee who went on to him employer’s property and shot a co-worker. The GOP decided to back down on SB 43 and the genius NRA lobbyists then decided to try to co-opt the very Democrats who were threatening to brow beat the GOP.
Fast forward to today and we get word that the NRA is trying to attach SB 43 as an amendment to other legislation — not that its germane or anything to anything it’d be attached to. They are trying to scare the legislators with stories of employees fired for bringing guns to work, using a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision that (A) will probably get reversed by the SCOTUS and (B) does not apply to any states outside the 9th Circuit.
Of course, that brings us to this sad story. A man brought a gun to the CNN Center and killed a lady earlier today. Apparently it was a “domestic situation.” Will the Democrats use this to club the GOP, or will the NRA be able to bribe enough of them to get an amendment through?
Gun rights vs. property right. The NRA sure knows how to pick a fight between friends.
