    I believe in a big tent.  I accept that.  I believe in winning elections, and I know that if we put up anti-2nd Amendment Democrats in Western districts, they will lose.  I can be pragmatic.  We cannot purge the party of 2a supporters today.

    But, I am personally done.  Much like the death penalty, I am done tinkering with the machinery of death.  It will be a long and slow fight and may not be won in my lifetime, if ever, but I am done.  There are out-of-date clauses to the Constitution, it is not a sacred document.  We banned slavery, we enshrined equal protection under the law, we extended the voting franchise to women and 18-21 year olds, we established an income tax.  We have made many positive changes to the Constitution.  It's time to work towards repeal of the 2a.  We have done many things that probably appeared inconceivable in 1787.  We can do this too, even if it takes 80 years.

    As to the RKBA group here, a look at the hiddens today is the strongest argument for why RKBA needs to clean its own house.  Should they disband?  This is Kos's show and I'll leave that to Kos.

    But fuck, people, clean your goddamn house.  If the next few days are filled with the sorts of comments that filled the hiddens today, I'll be all about that purge that your diary today calls for.
