"Lets get the record straight. First of all, theres no question that I support 2nd Amendment rights, but I also support an assault weapon ban.
Look, Ive been governor in a pretty tough state. Youve heard of blue states. In the toughest of blue states, I made the toughest decisions and did what was right for America.
I have conservative values.

I made the

Thanks, P-Marlowe. :)
And Reagan himself signed in to law the Hughes Amendment.
Good-bye you troubled, lying supporter of that lying, left-wing Progressive Liberal Mitt Romney!
FreeRepublic is much better without the trash you were so fond of spewing.
“***Why not vote Republican? Ill be writing in Sarah.”
Republican and conservative are not synonymous terms. If anything, the gop honors conservatism in the breach. If even then. The third parties are actually running some solid conservatives. Better to vote for them instead of wasting my vote on a kinder, gentler anti-gun socialist
Sarah decided not to run: she’s not on the ballot. It’s her decision and I respect it. I don’t see the point in voting for someone who has said they don’t want the job.
Both Romney and Obama are wrong on the most important issues. The election of either will produce one and trhe same outcome. The most important peaceful means we have to express our dissent is with our vote. In this case in faith that for the sake of a few our nation can be salvaged I can not in clear conscience vote for either man. As of right now the only clear choice I see too vote for is Virgil Goode. Let the opposition political party begin.
I'm totally with you, CVA!
I appreciate it. And I understand your position were that to have been the case. I’m having a FB “conversation” with a former cop friend (former cop, not former friend) who is adamant that “reasonable limits” (no 100-round “clips” (argh), no automatic weapons) be placed on our gun ownership rights. The guy booked Constitutional Law our first year - I asked him “where does it say ‘shall not be unreasonably abridged’?” No answer yet.
Some items such as the 30 or 100-round clips (argh) suppressors, helmets, body armor and automatic weapons are items I view as serious combat defensive items. I want everyone to be allowed to buy and practice using them but I would prefer they not be allowed as open carry in mixed company.
Mixed company being children, women and impressionable age teenagers. Parents can teach their kids how and when to use them, women meaning wives, moms and grandmoms are all capable of determining if they wish to be in the vicinity of such items.
What was he zotted for? Being a supporter of Romney over Soetoro? RIDICULOUS! That’s why I stopped posting. I’m not afraid to admit it, I have every intention of voting for Romney. Am I thrilled with him? Hell NO! But anybody is better than the Marxist Kenyan homo usurper. So now Freepers get zotted for defending Romney over Soetoro?
I’ll be back after the elections.... maybe.. or maybe not. I have no interest in any forum that wants to help the Kenyan get re-elected. Sorry, that’s how I feel.
Why are you asking me? You are well aware that I have no say in those decisions. Are you sure that you want to be on the ping list?
I believe it was for personalizing his disagreements with Romney non-supporters.
I’m not real sure, though, because I didn’t see the offending posts. However, I’d say it was a personalized attack that began with something like, “You love Obama since you’re not supporting Romney.”
It is an unfair attack in itself, but sometimes it gets overblown into a full scale attack. And the logic isn’t accurate in any case.
If I love beef and don’t want pork or chicken, then my voting for neither, but insisting on beef doesn’t mean I support chicken because I haven’t sided with pork.
