    to reclaim the majority in the House, even if it is with a few of these types. If we can do that and replace them with better Democrats, so much the better. But I wouldn't wish for a stronger Republican majority just to be rid of a few Democratic sycophants of the NRA.

      While I don't think this contempt vote is proper, we've got to be able to win seats in areas where gun control is considered odious. Note that all of them except Ron Kind have districts that are redder than America as a whole (and sometimes much redder), many of them vote with us on most issues (this is true of Hochul in particular), and all of them are well to the left of any Republican who would run in their district. We can't put purity on a single issue ahead of potency on multiple issues.
