Not to get the thread more off track, but just have to say the public land issue is minor compared to other issues, such as illegal immigration, which Democrats don't even acknowledge as a problem and would prefer to have open borders so anyone can come live in our country. Let the Democrats have their way and we won't have a country left. So I'm sure as heck not going to support any Democrats just because I'm being told they're proponents of keeping public land public. Ironically, they're also, in general, anti hunting. So let's keep public land public, but ban hunting. That's what they would do. So no, never would I vote Democrat based on one issue.

What defines the 'progressive liberalism' that is being tossed back and forth between posts? 

Just curious what everyone thinks 'progressive liberalism' is and why they think support for that political ideology results in banning AR-15s.

What defines it? Its definition.

Here's a pretty good run-down:

The definition cited centered around advocating the regulation of private markets.  Are you suggesting that regulating private markets would result in advocating banning AR-15s?

Well, you seemed to identify progressive liberalism (entrenched in the D part) as the cause of the latest version of an assault weapons ban.

Before blaming an entire ideology, I was just curious what aspects of that ideology you thought led to the conclusion that banning assault weapons will contribute to reducing the occurrences of gun violence and 'mass' shootings.

For the record, I don't think an assault weapons ban is the right approach.  We tried that approach before and it was ineffective.

Addressing Paragraph #1: How is it not obvious that gun control legislation, including the one cited in the OP, is coming from the left?

Addressing Paragraph #2: Kindly restate and/or clarify what you are trying to say.  As written, it does not make sense given my anti-gun control stance.

Addressing Paragraph #3: I agree with what you've said.

"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Per the original thread It doesn't surprise me none. Frankenstein is always about her Assault weapons bans.  :bash: I hope it goes no where.
as for bump stocks which still in the news hope that fails as well.  Shall not be infringed is absolute and not subject to a vote or any majority, at least that's how it was supposed to be.
