My Dad ran for Congress as a Democrat during the ABSCAM sting. The guy who won was convicted pretty soon and they asked him to take the seat. He refused.

He still would have had to run for the seat in a special election. Governors get to appoint replacement Senators but the only way to the House is through an election.

When vacancies happen in the Representation from any State, the Executive Authority thereof shall issue Writs of Election to fill such Vacancies.​

Ban Assault Rifles! Oh the horror. If it looks like one and shoots like one it probably is one*. And someone please let me know when the military is armed with semi auto dogballs.

* The difference is full auto, and some troops have that disabled to keep them from popping off their 30 rounds in 8 seconds and are helpless until they reload.
I am not making this up.

Bad training, then. In other countries it's key to conserve ammunition, so you fire 'double taps' only. It may need 4 shots to put him down, but you don't go spraying a whole mag in the hopes of hitting something.

EDIT: And now back to your regular programming...

I carried a concealed carry with permit in Philly during the 90’s. I had a 5 shot revolver. If you need more rounds as you are trying to escape a firefight or stop a terrible crime, you need to not be there. YMMV.

No, a Ruger sp101? Hammerless…can’t remember, I gave it to my older brother with a gun safe that was in his house when he bought it. Probably never been back out. I could have bought a 13 round gun for less, but I’m not a killer. I never felt safe carrying, bad people can take you down and take your weapon. I got an Amstaff terrier, looks like a pit Bull and that’s when I got rid of the gun. I did stop a couple of violent crimes an a rape with that gun though. Bad guys had no fear of a long haired, gun toting college kid. Bad times in a bad city. Don’t need a gun in NJ. I am very glad about that.

OMG

Sarah H Sanders? What a disaster. Disgusting that a press secretary who didn’t hold press conferences for a democracy hating and insurrection leading ex-POTUS is given air time after the SOTU address.

Nasty and repellent. She oozes resentment and victimhood.
