Things that make you go GRRR...

Postby ex-LT on Sun Jun 28, 2020 9:56 am

I had the misfortune to listen in on a political solicitation call from the DFL endorsed candidate for the state House of Representatives (district 58A) yesterday. I sat politely by, ignoring her drivel, until she brought up "Gun Safety". When she mentioned that the majority of gun sales in Minnesota do not require a criminal background check, I almost lost it. However, instead of correcting her on the spot, I waited until after the phone call, got an email address off her campaign website (where I discovered that she is endorsed by Moms Demand Action, and Every Town for Gun Confiscation Safety), and sent her an email shredding her stance on gun RIGHTS and the Second Amendment. I also informed her that based solely on her anti Second Amendment stance, that no one in our household will support her candidacy.

At last check, I have not received a response from her (or her campaign), and I really don't care if I do.

Of course not, you're a "deplorable".

Erin Preese? She is not only endorsed by all the anti-gun groups, but she's also been one of their key volunteers in the state for the last several years.

I thought they didn't have volunteers, only paid staff.
