Our former House member was strongly pro-gun with a good track record fighting the last Missouri law enforcement outrage a few years ago with identifying “extremists” by their bumper stickers supporting certain Republican candidates. Our new House member probably agrees with him on everything, but he's been in office barely three months and has limited influence. Sometimes term limits hurt conservatives, too.

No, no, and no!
I realize you're probably kidding. But the Second Amendment applies to **ALL** Americans, regardless of race or politics. We need to remember that.
An inner-city black gun owner, regardless of who he votes for, is just as much of an American citizen as any white rural or suburban gun owner.
In principle, I agree with all your statements about the Second Amendment.
On the other hand, it is painfully ironic that the people who have the worst crime rate vote overwhelmingly for candidates who want to disarm law abiding citizens.
