GOP lobbied to limit voting hours in North Carolina: Of course they did.

Progressives are headed for big election day wins on wages, weed, and guns:

While regulating firearms has proven impossible on the federal level, Nevada, California, Maine, and Washington are all on pace to pass tougher gun laws next Tuesday. In the Silver State, the measure would require firearm transfers to go through a licensed gun dealer, except in instances of a temporary transfer or of a gift between immediate family members. Mainers are considering a similar expansion of background checks. In California, voters are likely to ban large-capacity magazines and require certain individuals to pass background checks before buying bullets, while Washington is set to allow judges to issue temporary violence restraining orders to deny people who are found to be a danger to themselves or others access to firearms. Current polls show all of these measures passing, although Nevada’s is more hotly contested than the others.

How Trump pushed millennials out of the Republican party: Obvious explanations, but well written.

Gun buyers stockpiling firearms ahead of Election Day: Lovely.
