Two Pieces Of Information Second Amendment Supporters Should Feel Good About

#GUNVOTE
#GUNVOTE

United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Let me present two pieces of information for your consideration, loyal Ammoland readers, which will give you a glimpse into the minds of our enemies.

Piece of information number one: Comments from Democratic strategist David Shor, who was interviewed by New York Magazine about the 2020 election and trends for the 2022 midterms:

  • “[H]istorically, Democrats have won non-white conservatives, often by very large margins. What happened in 2020 is that nonwhite conservatives voted for Republicans at higher rates; they started voting more like white conservatives.”
  • “[T]he fundamental problem is that Democrats have been relying on the support of roughly 90 percent of Black voters and 70 percent of Hispanic voters. So if Democrats elevate issues or theories that a large minority of nonwhite voters reject, it’s going to be hard to keep those margins.”
  • “Basically, we have this small window right now to pass redistricting reform and create states. And if we don’t use this window, we will almost certainly lose control of the federal government and not be in a position to pass laws again potentially for a decade.”

Does this sound like someone confident in the so-called “emerging Democratic majority” or in the inevitability of a “coalition of the ascendant?” The answer is clearly, “No.” These are the comments of a political strategist who sees the political landscape shifting and not necessarily to the advantage of those he is strategizing for.

For instance, Gallup’s polling shows that conservatives (who we can generally assume are pro-Second Amendment) hold an 11-point lead over liberals (where the bulk of anti-Second Amendment extremists come from), 36-25, with 35 percent of the country identifying as moderate. Now, the exact splits may vary by state, county, state/local legislative district, or Congressional district, but there is one thing Shor noted in his interview: “Roughly the same proportion of African American, Hispanic, and white voters identify as conservative.”

Shor’s comments indicate that the ratios Gallup found don’t really discriminate by race. This means that given the ratios that the anti-Second Amendment extremists running the Democratic Party count on to win elections, there is a demographic disaster looming, but it isn’t for the Second Amendment. If anything, given the trends Shor mentioned, you can see that the anti-Second Amendment extremists who currently run the Democratic party are in a precarious situation and are thus pushing desperate measures to avoid being locked out of power.

What else can explain the furor of the Left over Tim Scott’s state of the union response, or the candidacy of Caitlin Jenner for governor of California, if not furthering those ideological fault lines? That isn’t the only factor as well. After the 2018 midterms, I noted that sometimes, other issues will dominate the election. That year, health care was the issue, and along with a distaste for President Trump’s tone, it hurt pro-Second Amendment candidates. In 2022, critical race theory, Biden’s co-called “equity” agenda, and the Left’s affinity for socialism could be the issues that dominate.

Asian-American and suburban moderates, in particular, aren’t taking too kindly to “equity” campaigns in local school districts, which means that over the short term, they may ignore a pro-Second Amendment position they would otherwise see as a deal-breaker to defeat local and state officeholders who are carrying out an “equity” campaign.

As for socialism, Shor himself admits that it shifted Hispanic and Asian-American support away from Democrats, saying, “I think one natural inference is that the increased salience of socialism in 2020 — with the rise of AOC and the prominence of anti-socialist messaging from the GOP — had something to do with the shift among those groups.” Shor also noted the Hispanic opposition to the “defund the police” campaign.

While some might hold permanent grudges over those issues and change their voting accordingly, others will default to the other issues that held primacy in their decision-making process on Election Day. How big each of those groups will be is the big question. Once the immediate crisis is over, the number of people whose defections are permanent can be maximized if Second Amendment supporters are willing to put in the work to change these “temporary” defectors into Second Amendment allies who will overlook the other issues, or at least render them non-hostile to those candidates and officeholders who defend our rights.

This is achievable but will involve carefully thought out messaging, along with hiring translators to start making the case to new arrivals. Let’s face it, until 2025, the Biden-Harris regime will have the gates thrown open. The question is, whether we surrender to despair or fight like hell to make our case? The latter may be the better option. Why?

For that, let’s consider piece of information number two: Polling results from the Washington Post as reported by Breitbart News, showing a sharp drop in support for anti-Second Amendment measures among young people and Hispanics. John Nolte noted a number of reasons why this is happening, including the riots of last summer and the lack of response by authorities.

The 2020 election has taught us that leaving votes on the table could be bad for the future of the Second Amendment.

There are huge gains to be had for Second Amendment supporters, who just need to be willing to put in the work to accelerate some trends that are already starting instead of surrendering to despair.

Do you have any proof of a rigged election? Trump, Giuliani, Powell, pillow man or anyone else can’t produce proof of voter fraud either. You’ve got buffoons in Arizona looking for bamboo infused voter ballots, that’s when you know they’re grasping at straws.

The commiecrats over the last 5 months have systematically destroyed all the evidence, they did so openly and blatantly, and no one has been arrested because this is a coup d’etat. When you commit the greatest crime in all US history, you wanna destroy all the evidence ASAP and bury every smking gun.

You can take your demand for ‘proof’ and shove it; trolls like you always demand things that are impossible to put in a comment section.

All in keeping with the troll handbook. It’s S.O.P. (Standard Operating Procedure). This ploy happens to be #19.
“Ignore proof presented, demand impossible proofs. This is perhaps a variant of the “play dumb” rule. Regardless of what material may be presented by an opponent in public forums, claim the material irrelevant and demand proof that is impossible”

I go there to take care of the little black children who’s mommy’s don’t give a shit about them and dumped them off because they were the sixth kid by a different father and they wouldn’t get welfare for that one and that was cheaper than an abortion which she found out with the first, sixth one she would have had.… Read more »

“Polls” always(!) return the exact results that they are PAID to return. If you determine who authorized/paid for the poll, you will know (with certainty) what the “poll” will report – well before the “poll” is even released to the public.

It’s easy to get the answers you want by how you phrase the question. e.g. “Do you support background checks?” Most people will say yes. But ask if they want the limitations on transfers that most Democrat gun control bills demand, e.g. loaning a firearm to a gun owning friend requires an expensive background check by an FFL, 10-30 day waiting period, and the same to return the firearm, the answer will be NO!

Dee, your response makes absolutely NO sense. The physical act of voting has absolutely nothing to do with the accumulation of “data” via taking an opinion poll. The two processes are entirely different.

God, I wish I could agree but they are working on changing the system to the point that they won’t need to steal it anymore because all the cards will be stacked on their side. No filibuster, stack the court, no voter id needed go vote in one town then go to the next and claim a different identity and vote again? They are working hard to make our vote trash. If they pull off the no id requirement then we need to all take that day off so we can go and vote from one town to the next… Read more »

Gallup gallup gallup, I wish it would trot off into the west never to be heard of again. It’s all there just to influence us and sway the unsure or timid voter. I don’t need a poll to tell me who is winning or loosing so I can vote on the winning side, that is so stupid that people are that way. I would rather waste my vote on the right candidate so I can say nice and loud and proud, NOT MY PRESIDENT.

The Democrats are keenly aware of the tendency, in America,to want to associate (vote for) a winner even if said “winner” is disagreeable to that voter. To some the important thing is to be “with” a winner.

The proof is there, but your Deep State and its globalist, leftist accomplices have so far succeeded in suppressing it publicly, at least in the minds of the useful idiots who trust only information from CNN, the MSM Ministry of Truth, and the like. Give it time, LOL. The truth can’t be hidden by people like you forever, and for those who have watched what happened during the 2020 election and the Georgia runoff, rather than sitting in partisan denial and active suppression of facts, the proof is highly visible. Honesty is not in your character.

The evidence was prevented from being brought forth in court. The cases were dismissed, rightly or wrongly, on standing. It may all be circumstantial but the evidence is overwhelming.

Great points. If you look at things like Proposition 8 (2008) in California, which was a rainbow jihad proposition you find that blacks and Hispanics presented the most vehement opposition. Socially conservative issues strike a cord in those communities. Abortion does the same. The problem the Republican Party has had over the years is first, they fail to understand and name their opposition. Calling the the Progressive New Left (fabian socialists) ‘Libs’ does not help make the case to many who have fled socialist disasters in South and Central America that leftism destroys and does not build. Leftism suppresses and… Read more »

Education is the key; I regret voting against school vouchers 20+ years ago. Public schools and most colleges and universities are little more than left wing cesspools of indoctrination. At least my professor in the 70’s did not mark me down for savaging Rules for Radicals.

I wish I could rely on that, Will, but it seems that the Democrats got clean away with it, and what is tolerated will continue.
Right now , they have escalated into Phase ll- the Purge , where Trump supporters and associates are now on the chopping block and not a damn one of those Democrat/Socialists are facing ANY consequences.
