In Episode 11 of District of Conservation, Gabriella discusses the effects of the 2018 midterm elections.

She notes that Democrats who have reclaimed the House of Representatives want to pursue anti-gun legislation, but won’t have it advance past their chamber. It’ll die in the U.S. Senate.

She notes that the new incoming Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) boasts an abysmal record on sportsmen’s issues and has backing from extreme animal rights groups.

She notes that NC passing the right to hunt and fish amendment is a win for conservation and that state Democrats worked actively against it.
