    So the conservative Virginia legislature passes a law saying no one can release personal information about gun owners, and the republicans do everything they can to violate that law before it goes into effect (yeah, we voted for, and now we have to do all those things we are against before it goes into law).

    Meanwhile, conservatives complain that the democrats are tyrannts who need lists of gun owners to enslave America.

    Oh, and of course, we find out about this the same day 5 are shot dead with another 5 wounded in a mass shooting in LA.

      I don't understand the whole point of this article. The GOP is collecting currently-legal information about a group that is statistically likely to be persuaded by their policy positions. The information will not be available to them later. Unless and until the GOP starts trying to get illegal information, this just seems like a "Hey, let's try to make fun of the other side by pointing out something that is both legal and reasonable."

        If you say you are against something and you do it... that is hypocrisy.

        If you say something is wrong and do it... that is immoral.

        If technical legality is your standard for behavior... you are unethical.

        If you justify doing what you say you are against and you claim is wrong by saying "It's not illegal" you are lost.
