We are truly in the upside down when teenagers act like adults and adults act like 5 year old children who don’t want to hand over something thats extremely dangerous.
“what do you have?”
“AN ASSAULT RIFLE”
less than 300 people are killed by any rifle in the US per year.
also unless they paid tens of thousands of dollars or bought it before 1986 they don’t have an assault rifle. And funny thing is that the people that DO have ACTUAL assault rifles DON’T use them in crimes.
Yeah, we’re wising up and moving to Gun Owners of America who is busting their asses to get back the select fire, short barreled, suppressed weapons the NRA took away from us.
And if you’re afraid of the power Trump already wields, hear this: if we don’t show up in the midterms, the Republicans could get a supermajority in the Senate. That means no ability to filibuster. No recourse. No way to stop them.
We’ve got to make sure the blue states stay blue and try to turn some of those red states blue as well. Don’t count your state out just because it usually votes Republican. Historically, midterms have way lower turnouts than presidential election years. So lets actually show up this time and do some damage.
Oh, and one hopeful note, all the House seats are up for reelection. So let’s take that shit away from Donald Trump and his Republican Party.
Also, remember to vote in local elections! Keep track of when they are, the candidates, and make sure you stay informed on local and state politics. We have to show up in 2018, and at every. Single. Thing.
I dont like adding things but this needs to be said: DO NOT ASSUME THAT THERE WILL BE A HIGH DEMOCRATIC TURNOUT. Do not think that “oh EVERYONE else will show up to vote, I dont have to” Do not do that. Because trust me you wouldn’t be the only person thinking that. Now, if everyone assumes it’ll be a high turn out so they dont go, then nobody goes. Assume always that your vote will be the tipping point, assume that your vote is necessary and needed (because guess what: it absolutely is). Go vote. Keep track of the dates. And just go do it.
Register to vote. Check that you’re registered even if you think you are, even if you (like me) have voted in every election since you were old enough to do so. And then do it.
If you can, volunteer to drive people to the polls.
Re: luciferissatan’s comment – 100% correct – even more correct is that midterms’ low voter turnout? Is because Dems skip the midterms. More Republicans go to the polls for midterm elections, historically, than Democrats.
IF YOU STAY HOME, REPUBLICANS WILL WIN. END OF.
All you high schooler turning 18 in time for the election make sure you register to vote!!
Y’all are woke right now and that is so amazing, but you need to keep the momentum going. Real change happens when you show up and help put people into power the will actually make changes.
15 states—California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Utah—plus the District of Columbia, allow or have enacted legislation allowing 16 or 17 year-olds to pre-register to vote even if they won’t turn 18 before Election Day. So when you are getting your license register so that come election day you don’t have to worry about it. Tell your friends to do the same.
This goes double for all you right-leaners out there. National Carry Reciprocity, Hearing Protection Act, and shutting this “NICS Fix” bullshit DOWN is only going to happen if we push the tyrants out.
You might’ve been born with your Civil Rights but the government sure as shit isn’t going to let you keep them unless you fight TOOTH and NAIL, EVERY DAY to keep them. Ask the people getting dogs set on them and blasted with fire hoses how much Democrats feel about Civil Rights.
this sums up modern control advocacy perfectly.
Everytown USA to end hatpin violence.
