NRA is a nonpartisan organization and we continue to endorse members of any party who work to defend American gun owners. As the current marginalized national Democratic Party grapples with its agenda moving forward, it would do well to learn from its past and curtail their attacks on the Second Amendment. Wise Democratic leaders will recognize that they have been here before and that abandoning their anti-gun ambitions is an important component of their path back to power. However, with Democratic House members still offering microstamping and gun turn-in bills, there is little evidence of such wisdom.

Repudiated at the Polls, National Democrats Continue to Push Gun Control
[I believe it is beyond the capacity of the majority of Democrats to do this. There are too many socialists and communists who know their path to power and tyranny would be blocked by firearms in the hands of individual citizens.—Joe]
As long as the far left is in leadership of the Demshovik party I will NEVER vote for a D in an election. I hate having to pull the lever for the stupid party and will fight to rid the country of THEIR stupid pols. Even if St Peter ran on the D ticket the Demshovik leadership would override anything he tried to accomplish out of the regressive platform so a vote for him would be wasted anyway.
“There are too many socialists and communists who know their path to power and tyranny would be blocked by firearms in the hands of individual citizens”
Although there definitely are some of these types in the Dem party leadership, I believe for the majority of rank-and-file Dems, the attitude is more, “I know what is good for you, and you are not competent to decide for yourself.”
Part of the problem is that they don’t see, or want to see, that these two statements are essentially equivalent. There is no meaningful difference between “you’re too dumb to make decisions about your own insurance priorities” and “the state has all the power to make medical decisions for you”.
