Then you must make more noise, and if the Repubs are too distasteful for voters, raise the flag for a third party. Libertarians are pretty good. Vote out those who do not represent you. Fight those who want to keep electing them. Raise hell and talk to everyone you meet. It takes money and effort.

exactly! criminals don’t ask, I won’t either. I have the right to defend myself and my loved ones. I carry everyday, but since i don’t break other laws I don’t have legal standing to challenge the permitting process. No standing for legal challenge.
