@Deleted User I am completely focused on Tax Cuts and infrastructure.

2018-10-30 05:57:13 UTC  

You shall see this when I introduce all the bills I have ready.

2018-10-30 05:57:30 UTC  

However I decided that I wanted to get Gun Control out of the way first.

2018-10-30 05:58:20 UTC  

Atlasia has some gun control

2018-10-30 05:58:44 UTC  

Bump stock bans in each region.

2018-10-30 05:58:47 UTC  

That's about it.

2018-10-30 05:59:30 UTC  

like I said before, you made absolutely no mention of an interest in this topic when campaigning. and I'm starting to feel like you intentionally did it this way.

2018-10-30 05:59:46 UTC  


2018-10-30 05:59:57 UTC  

Gun control wasn't on my mind during the campaign.

2018-10-30 06:00:30 UTC  

However after I was sure I was elected I decided to read through the entirety of current Federal and Regional statute.

2018-10-30 06:01:02 UTC  

Only when I was reading through this did Gun Control get on my agenda.

2018-10-30 06:02:23 UTC  

We have some gun control legislation

2018-10-30 06:02:32 UTC  

Bump Stocks and Trigger Cranks.

2018-10-30 06:02:32 UTC  

it’s just not a winning strategy

2018-10-30 06:02:36 UTC  

A no fly list.

2018-10-30 06:02:42 UTC  

You have to pick your battles @Deleted User

2018-10-30 06:02:46 UTC  

And background checks.

2018-10-30 06:02:58 UTC  


2018-10-30 06:02:58 UTC  

@Deleted User I picked this battle.

2018-10-30 06:03:12 UTC  

Because Gun Control is something I strongly believe in.

2018-10-30 06:03:34 UTC  

Yes but it has a huge backlash risk to it

2018-10-30 06:03:49 UTC  

gun control is a highly controversial issues in Atlasia

2018-10-30 06:04:12 UTC  

and not one that is really that popular outside of the left

2018-10-30 06:04:21 UTC  

I don't care. It's something I believe in.

2018-10-30 06:04:39 UTC  

worth noting that the Federalist Party platform contains this:

- That the right to bear arms is a fundamental freedom that should be protected for all Atlasians

2018-10-30 06:05:08 UTC  

"The Federalist Party is a broad church"

2018-10-30 06:05:31 UTC  

I think it was YT who said that while he was trying to recruit me.

2018-10-30 06:05:41 UTC  

Someone did in discord DMs, I'm sure of that.

2018-10-30 06:06:53 UTC  

it's great that you're fighting for something you believe in, but you intentionally withheld this position from party members while campaigning, and waited until being elected to not only making it known, but your biggest priority (which once again goes against what you campaigned on)

2018-10-30 06:06:55 UTC  

I mean we will not force you to do anything you dont want to do

2018-10-30 06:07:30 UTC  

we aren't going to force you to change your views, but you have to understand why our concerns are valid

2018-10-30 06:07:51 UTC  

You can do what you want but don’t expect the party to support you if your campaigning on something very unpopular with the party

2018-10-30 06:08:40 UTC  

ASV the reason gun control isn't a big concern in Atlas is because in fantasy government land there are no mass shootings because it's not real life

2018-10-30 06:09:34 UTC  

Well, Atlasia is different from RL politics

2018-10-30 06:09:41 UTC  

like I don't make it a priority at all

2018-10-30 06:09:44 UTC  

Considering how we all are policy nerds

2018-10-30 06:10:04 UTC  

Anyway, once the Gun Control bills are done I'll get back to my priority list.

2018-10-30 06:10:14 UTC  

I have 11 infrastructure bills ready on standby.

2018-10-30 06:10:37 UTC  

And I'm still tinkering on what to do to the budget,

2018-10-30 06:10:46 UTC  

And what other taxes should be cut.
