Worse than the gunowners who don't vote is those who vote the WRONG way. I used to work in a manufacturing plant that had a union. I talked to MANY of the workers there who owned guns, but supported Demoncratic gun-grabbers. No amount of talking could get them to vote aganist the way their union told them to vote.
BTW, they did a lot of bitching about the NRA being worthless whenever it lost a vote in the Clinton years. I pointed out how the politicians THEY voted for voted to take their guns away. All they would ever say is that the NRA should be protecting them regardless of how they voted. Then I began asking how many of the were NRA members and found that almost NONE of the belonged to ANY pro-gun group.
They are a whole lot worse than the people who just fail to vote.
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.
The NRA is indeed "in the cesspool of Washington politics". -- Watch them like a hawk, and keep them lean & hungry.
I know some morons like that. Really stupid.
