Ohh...wrong troll!! :lol:

from our friend Wiki...

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[4]

But didn't see this one on this thread either. Very commonly used.

firearms dealers license to sell guns.

FFL = Federal Firearms License

That is no different than ISIS imposing sharia law wherever they go. I'm sure that some of those people will insist that it's not the same because their religion is the "right one." But as far as the First Amendment of the United States Constitution is concerned, it doesn't make a difference.

I couldn't find RKBA in this topic/thread. A quick external search seems to indicate that it means the "Right to Keep and Bear Arms".

Thanks for the help.
"The right to keep and bear arms is rooted in both self-defense and insurance against government’s propensity toward tyranny. The right pre-existed the Constitution. Thus, the Second Amendment is not its source. The right to keep and bear arms is natural and inalienable; the Second Amendment protects it, and Congress has no legitimate power to restrict it." - Senator John Cornyn (R., Tex.), as reported in the National Review on July 4, 2016

DGU = Defensive Gun Use

ROP = Religion Of Peace

ROPe = ? Did you perhaps mean GOPe? If so:

GOPe = Grand Old Party establishment i.e. Republican Party establishment, that firmly-entrenched power structure within the GOP that is more about party and power than the ideals upon which the party was founded. It is the permanent political class and structure that makes up the Republican Party. The establishment tends to control the rules of the party system, party elections, and funding disbursements. The establishment is typically viewed as more elitist, politically moderate, and out-of-touch with conservative voters.
