If no one is defending you, you are probably in the wrong. Of course, that wouldn't occur to a

conservative Supreme Court judge. The arrogance alone disqualifies this judge from siting on the bench of our highest court.

It's a good pitch, and it's true. The Republican version of "Freedom" is more gun deaths, more women

dying in childbirth, less healthcare, and more poverty.

Republicans can only force through the unpopular changes they want by threatening to severely damage

the nation (and the world's) economy.They must be exposed for the frauds they are, even if that requires a lot of pain. Otherwise, they will do it again and again and again. This isn't legislation - it's terrorism.

Basically I hear you explaining, very logically and with meaningful personal anecdotes that you have

witnessed over time a change in the attitude of local law enforcement towards crimes or incidents involving firearms. That change seems to be in the direction of feeling that unless a serious crime has taken place, - murder, serious physical injury, robbery - the misuse of firearms, and a disregard for basic gun safety procedures, is no longer considered worthy of law enforcement time and resources.

I would like to suggest that conservatives across the nation, and local law enforcement authorities (who generally lean towards the conservative side of the political spectrum), have decided that any action taken against the public misuse of firearms - even when they spur local citizens to report them when they feel endangered - is no longer to be responded to because right wing politicians will bring the full force of local government down on anybody who "complains" about anything remotely related to guns. Any hint of gun safety laws are considered dangerous and a serious threat to gun rights, and citizen reports are viewed in that light.

MAGAts are stuck in the mirror. They see nothing but what they expect to see.

They hear nothing but the endless echo chamber of Fox propaganda. They want revenge for "crimes" that didn't occur, are angry about "fraud" that didn't take place (except on their own side), and refuse to see the bottomless fraud and corruption of their own political leaders. They are ostriches with their heads stuck in a pit of shit generated by people who use them for their own profit.
