"Gun Safety" rather than "Gun Control"?

If a simple change in terminology changes our gun politics, great. I'm skeptical but it can't hurt.

There HAS to be a fierce backlash against the GOP in GA for this outrageous voter suppression bill

Why would any black voter ever vote Republican? Why would any decent person vote Republican?

Also, so much of this bill seems unconstitutional. It is just insane how bad it is.

What would you do if you saw a woman being sexually harassed?

Yesterday I stopped at a gas station mini-mart. The place was fairly crowded, a nice day, lots of people were out. I was with a 10 year kid I was taking care of for the afternoon-- taking him to get him a snack.

As we were walking into the store, I saw a woman also walking in, who was very ...attractive. I'm not sure the most politically correct way to put it but she attracted attention and as soon as started walking in-- some guy started catcalling her as she was going in. It wasn't how she was dressed either. Anyway, she came in after us and went to the cashier to pay for some gas.

Immediately like 3 guys moved around her, fairly big dudes, and just started saying the most lewd things imaginable. The most disturbing thing is one guy kept slapping her on the butt-- like many times very loudly. She seemed to be taking it very calmly. Maybe she was used to that sort of attention. But it was making me upset seeing her be abused like that.

We weren't that close to this incident as we were looking at snacks in the other part of the store, but we could hear them.

I kept thinking that maybe I should say something but a couple of the guys were really big and seriously I felt like they could have killed me if they were angry enough and who knows if they had a weapon.

I decided to just leave the place without buying anything because it was not an appropriate scene for the kid I was with. Thankfully after we left, I saw the woman walking out to her car by herself, and pumping gas.

My wife says I did the right thing to leave, particularly since I was with a kid, and if I was really worried, I could have called the cops.

But I keep feeling like I should have said something. I was a very disturbing thing to see. Just terrible to see men act like that.

P.S. of course all these people weren't wearing masks, which also made me want to stay away from them.
