    True. unfortunately. People make up their minds very quickly. I only wish people weren't so hasty when it comes to supporting legislation that effects mostly law abiding people.

    Menendez? Blumenthal? Fienstein? Kaine? Funny how all the names mentioned, have proven themselves outside of the RKBA, as some of the biggest idiots in Washington.

    People really have to start making up their own minds about their candidates and quit voting name recognition. This is only to be able to say they did something in the name of gun safety.

    All of these named politicians have one thing in common -- they are pounding on the gun issue as a distraction. On other issues, they are pro-business "moderates" -- or even conservatives -- which puts them at odds with the new base of their party. Guns are the one remaining way they have to establish their "liberal" bona fides. Remember that Menendez, in particular, was carrying water for the pharmaceutical industry throughout the debates on the Affordable Care Act.

    I don't remember them vocally agreeing with Trump on anything, but DO remember their "Anti-Trump at any cost" attitudes, which, along with gun-control, seem to be the left's main focus today, and of which Blumenthal is one of the biggest offenders in congress.

    I didn't say they agree with Trump on anything. I said they were pro-business, which means that they are globalist, anti-tariff, pro-immigration, etc. -- all the exact opposite of Trump. But that pro-business attitude also puts them at odds with the Democratic base. The gun issue is one way Feinstein, Menendez, etc. can prove that they are "liberals," when in fact they are not. But you are also making the mistake of assuming that Trump is a conservative. He is not. He's what's called a "right-wing populist." On guns, he has no principles. He'll do whatever his populist feedback tells him to do (such as ban bump stocks and promote "red flag" orders).

    How nice to see our esteemed CT senator(s) continuing to follow the misguided footsteps of Thomas J. Dodd.

    What is called "common sense" here is only common sense to the gleefully ignorant. Common sense to anyone who has experience, or performed research into the matter, is that the term "silencer" is a misnomer and suppressors do not make it so that a firearm cannot be heard and identified as such when discharged.

    You would think they'd be quite happy collecting tax revenue on NFA items, or even consider raising fees. I guess they'd rather spend revenue investigating, prosecuting, and incarcerating nonviolent citizens for violating unconstitutional regulations that do nothing to solve any problem.

    Business as usual. Wasteful, and stupid.

    I'm pretty certain that was sarcasm.
