1) All this bill does is require election cards to note which party the candidate is running on. That can be one of the three registered parties (Republican, Democratic, Libertarian), or it can be unaffiliated. 2) The whole idea of nonpartisan elections is bullsh*t. Democrats introduced that for judges in the so people wouldn't know who they are voting for. Every election should be partisan, so people know who they are voting for.
1) No. Another team would pick him up. He's only had three catches, but they were three damn good ones. 2) Muhsin Muhammad (also a second round pick) only had 25 catches his rookie year and 27 the year after that. Most receivers take time to develop.
It's not a quip, it's a legitimate point. I don't think you are talking in bad faith. I'm just pointing out that the conservative reaction to gun control is the same as liberal ones to abortion restrictions or opposition to gay marriage: vehement refusal to cede any point relating to it. The best arguments people have made are in favor of mental health reform. People aren't coming together on other things, because the typical liberal positions (background checks, bans on scaring-looking rifles, and bans on magazine sizes) do nothing to prevent nutjobs from acquiring weapons. That's the thing, though - what do we do? That's a conversation. It's a conversation that results in the same proposed solutions and nothing being done. Until both sides have reason to respect each other nothing will be done.
