That, i think, is from whence our issue arises. I read your original statement as a logical consequence, not as an observation of evidence.
Strawman. I was refering to the type of gun advocates who are unwilling to even discuss changes in gun policy. That is what I thought we were discussing: how much wiggle room we have between ‘sensible gun policy’ and ‘repeal 2nd amendment’. But really, I shouldn’t be arguing this.

It’s Silvio Berlusconi, the former Italian PM.
And as a democrat. Which rather loses you the consistency argument even further.
It worked. I got an intelligent reply.
@Snowlark Yeah, I dragged his picture into a search and found that out. Don’t get the reference. He’s an orange guy. Is that it?

Do you know what the right wing likes more than a reformed sinner? A man who has seen the error of his ways and returned to the path? Please tell me.
They like their daddies. A return to when the buck stopped somewhere else and they could play in the shelter of childhood.
A good CEO and a good head of the Executive are not nested skill sets.
natural born? as opposed to what? from a test tube? delivered by stork?
He was a media mogul who had authoritarian tendencies and ran a country. Much like Trump is trying to do… if anyone, that’s the closest parallel to Trump.
