If not now, when?
Tonight, I joined colleagues and signed discharge petitions for H.B. 86 and H.B. 484 so that the bills can be considered on the House floor. Our families and communities are waiting for us to find solutions that help prevent gun violence and protect constitutional rights. #ncpol pic.twitter.com/t6BTo7WipX

They shouldn't have to do this, but Republican leaders have neither the desire nor the courage to protect our citizens.
The Historic Tax Credit Program has been huge for rural NC. Yet, @NC_Governor’s veto has put a halt to projects & jeopardized the future of the entire program. Thank you @RepSteveRoss for shedding light on this important issue. #ncga #ncpol https://t.co/NxDfRbuCZf

Take your vote to (try to) override his Veto, or STFU. These disingenuous attacks are beyond tiresome, because the ball has been in their court for several weeks.

Yeah, he's a real winner, alright. He will ride whatever controversial, hateful horse he can clamber onto, whether it's attacking women, LGBTQ folks, brown-skinned people, etc. And NC has more than enough hateful voters to put his useless butt in our highest office.

And of course it won't make any difference to his loyal followers. Might actually cause more shootings, so I'm not sure we should be publicizing it.

Let's just say I hate President Trump's America, and leave it at that.
#Asheville police say gangs are a factor in rising #GunViolence. Civil rights advocates say focusing on gangs can lead to biased policing. Now Asheville has a new chief. What does he say? #avl #avlnews #ncpol #ncgov https://t.co/l6yHa5xqC8

Dude just arrived here from Indianapolis five minutes ago. Not saying Asheville doesn't have a gang problem, but I am saying there's no way he could know that yet. He might have some unfinished (psychological) business to deal with...

Here we go again, cue the calls for another tax cut by Republicans. Go ahead, I've got one word for ya': Veto.

The very definition of "sell out." Both of these jackasses need to go.
Such an exciting day in Jones County preparing to celebrate the new Jones County K-12 school with a Ribbon Cutting and Dedication Ceremony followed by a tour of the new facility! #NCEd #NCGA #ncpol pic.twitter.com/thfjiJ8WMT

Just keep doing your little tours, and keep your grubbies off wind energy.
The enabling legislation for the "Marsy's Law" constitutional amendment (crime victims' rights) passed in the fall has been removed from the House Rules Committee. It was up for consideration at 3 p.m. today. #ncga #ncpol

What does that mean? When a bill is sent to a committee, doesn't it require a vote by said committee to release it? Or does that make too much sense?
Over the past few days Americans have seen an epidemic of Racism against them for having light and white skin. From Democrats, the Leftist Media, Hollywood, an onslaught of Anti-White bigotry. The Lefts hatred of Americans is palpable. STAND UP & STAND STRONG. #NCpol #NCnews

An "epidemic" that produced zero casualties, while the bodies pile up from white shooters. Go back under the bridge, you logic-deprived troll.

That's a hard question to answer. It may seem low, but when you consider how intransigent most politically-active people are these days, it begins to look a little high. Possibly a better question to ask: Did the people who changed their minds follow links embedded in the social media to more in-depth information about those subjects? If so, that's a really good sign. Social media should serve as a gateway for those who want more than just a blurb.

Oh, let's see, maybe it's because Republicans tried (for two years) to rejigger that board to give themselves control, literally paralyzing it in the process? Just spitballing here...

This is now their new (shallow) argument, to give Trump deniability in this tragedy. The problem is, the guy is only 21. He was 18 or 19 when Trump was elected, so for his entire adult life he's had Trump harping about a Wall. It's not a coincidence that much of his manifesto can be directly linked to Trump Tweets or rally speeches, and his denial of Trump influence is a classic narcissistic move: Trying to keep the focus on himself. Don't fall for it.
On that unsettling note, here's your Onion:
