DALLAS, TX— On Saturday, just after the anti-gun protest, I joined the NRA. Thirty bucks. It entitled me to a one-year subscription of American Rifleman and an entire weekend spent sinking deeper and deeper into a welcoming swamp of perpetual war.
One more sign pointing to the potential for a blue wave in November’s midterm elections: the surge in people making small-dollar donations to House Democratic candidates.
