Maryland Gov. Wes Moore says he’s ‘not scared of the gun lobby’ after the NRA sued him over the state’s new gun-control law
This is the problem. They have nothing to lose from infringing upon the rights of millions of people. This is why 18 USC 241 and 242 exist. These laws put some bite into the denial of civil rights. But, of course, since the infringers are essentially the enforcers of the laws, they can safely ignore them.
I don’t think they are looking far enough into the future. At some point people will “vote from the rooftops” and things get very messy. It would be far better for the laws to be enforced and we could all avoid the mess.
