Never heard of them. Please let me know when they get something passed without the NRA's help.

Fools ALWAYS have poor excuses to do nothing. I used to know a gun owner who refused to rejoin the NRA because they didn't send him that cheap little plastic key chain "cartridge".

My favorite will still be the clowns who complain they get fundraisers in the mail. It never occurs to them since the mailings work, others are getting out their paychecks while they complain they have to make a trip to the garbage can. Pathetic.

This is absolutely right and spot on the truth. Whichever groups get out the vote effectively will win. We know we have the numbers. SO LET'S VOTE!!!

While I am not yet a gun owner, I DO VOTE. I have not failed to vote in any election since turning age 18 (30 years). And I vote for only those who support and vote to maintain our right to keep and bear arms. I have also served on a jury, as my patriotic duty calls for. I haven't invested in a gun to this point only because I have access to them anyway. I will be investing soon as I believe we will wind up having to defend ourselves in our own yards before this war is over. While my son fights overseas for our freedoms and liberties, I am prepared to do the same at home.

Please thank your son for serving from those of us who do not have the chance to do so personally.

Both NRA and Second Amendment Sisters have payment plans to become Lifers. If shelling out a large lump sum is undo-able, this is the way to go.

* BANG! *

Never heard of them.

That doesn't surprise me, unless you are a Virginian, or frequent Packing.org or CombatCarry.com

Please let me know when they get something passed without the NRA's help.

We do every year on the state level without any help from, or in spite of the NRA. The National Park carry item is the first foray into national issues.

Great Post...I have some friends from Mich who live here in Florida...They are democrats and Union....Yet they are gun owners...I cannot seem to make them understand that voting Democrat will take away their rights...It has been embedded into to Union heads that you only vote Democratic...This debate goes on each and every week....I have made some headway but it is tough...They simply hate GW to the point that nothing else seems to matter...If all the gun owners in America voted their guns we never ever would lose as gunowners....My debate with the two of the will continue till I wear them down......

I will pass your thanks along, and thank you for your kind words. I feel the same as you. I would be fighting along side my son now, but the recruiter told me I'm too old to enlist.

One more thing....a lot of shooters are so disgusted with the Republicans that a lot of them are swearing to vote third party. Constitution and Libertarian are two favorites. Make no mistake, a 3rd party vote is a vote FOR the RATS! We are a two party system. Period. 3rd parties can only act as the spoiler. Want proof? Ask Algore what he thinks of the Green Party in the 2000 election? Ask Bush #41 what HE thinks of the Reform Party in regards to his defeat in '92. Stay the course. There are enough conservatives in our Party that we can get back on course and return to our roots. When we run as true conservatives we WIN!

But there is this fallacy that to win one must run to the center and compromise on certain critical principles. The fact is that in order to win decisively, the Left must indeed run to the right and pretend to stop at the center.....but they're really only ducking and weaving with fancy footwork to stay as far to the left as they can. They must play with smoke and mirrors to appease the ultra left wing liberals who truly control the part while attracting the electorate that wins elections. If this sounds a bit schizophrenic....it is. That is why the Dems must not win control...ever!

The reality is that most voters - right,left,center - are not single-issue voters.

Long ago, back in '68, -- the NRA supported a gun control act that in effect gave away the farm. -- The NRA helped establish the 'principle' that Congress has the power to infringe on our rights to keep and bear arms thru 'regulations' on commerce.

Can you tell us, friend, what the "fallback" position being offered by the other side was in the wake of a series of high-profile assasinations culmanating in the killing of Bobby Kennedy? Can you list for us the interest groups which were marshalled in support of GCA '68? Can you tell us what the media was doing to the pro-gun position back then?

You may start the research for your answers here: http://www.saf.org/LawReviews/Vizzard3.htm

To reinforce ExSoldier's point - if we had instant-runoff elections, or a parliamentary system where representation was proportional to the vote, then a vote for a third party would make sense. But we don't, so it (nearly always) doesn't.
