    Reading between the lines of posts like Newt's anti-gun record and Mitt Romney's anti-assault weapon antics got me thinking. If the Republican Party is so pro-2nd Amendment why are these candidates even up for consideration?

    Do you think the Republican Party is taking the 2nd Amendment vote for granted?

    That, and they're not the least bit interested in protecting it. They will eventually sell out all gun owners. They're trying to do it now with Romney. :D

    Without a doubt. They are stupid and are too worried about who they can appease, not who they are angering.

    Compromise is the worst thing for the 2nd Amendment IMO. Is it straight forward....it even says "shall not be infringed", but they do all the time to make the anti gun people happy.

    The anti gun people are too ignorant to see that the government is slowly taking away the rights and freedoms our ancestors gave their life for....not just the 2nd either.

    The minority (not a racial statement either) ruling the majority.

    You are right on target. There is a major lack of understanding on the part of the anti-2nd Amendment folks. The so called liberals and conservatives don't talk about things in a civil and respectful manner. If I can get an anti-gun person to try some shooting at the range, they often end the day talking about buying their first pistol. One step in doing my part to make a united country out of a bunch of political factions.

    Back on target: If the GOP is taking the 2nd Amendment vote for granted, how can we hold thier feet to the fire and make them pass more sweeping changes to strengthen the 2nd Amendment?

    The only way is to put more conservatives on the supreme court. Nothing else counts. Anything new, disliked by the left, will get there eventually.

    Get 'compromising' organizations OUT of DC. Organizations like the NRA.
    As it is now Mitt was more than happy to state that he worked with the NRA while passing anti Constitution laws. Sad sad sad.

    We need to get other organizations that believe in NOT compromising when it comes to our Natural Rights.

    Inalienable Rights VS Compromise

    It appears to me that most people don't know WHY the Second Amendment is there in the first place, that needs to change.

    The liberal progressive movement involves both the Dems and the GOP. There are too many who double speak. We simply need to replace them and we do so at the ballot box.

    Someone from the NRA called me --again-- about giving them money. Not that it would do alot of good, but I informed the caller of my disappointment with the NRA for not providing me with the whole story of Newt and Mitt's anti gun activities. I kept it polite, but I could tell by the end of the call that the NRA caller was not happy with me.

    Yes I do think that. After reading a book called "The Conscience of a Libertarian" by Wayne Allan Root, it really awakened me to the fact that Republican v. Democrat is like voting big government vs. bigger government or dumb vs. dumber. The Republican Party is not at all the party they were 30 years ago.

    Another "if they don't think EXACTLY the way I do I'm voting for someone else" thread?
    Sad?! Or reality? The polls show that once again Paul hasn't a chance, so voting any way besides the Republican nominee is a vote FOR obama.
    It's gonna be a close one, so are people gonna vote for the Republican nominee, or adopt a 'come hell or high water' attitude and vote third party?
    So the answer is 'Yes', the Pro-2nd IS taken for granted in some respects, because ANY other vote is FOR an institution that is diametrically opposed to our cause and beliefs.
    I don't like it, but I'm not one for cutting off my nose to spite my face either.
    Political ideals are one thing, but political reality is often quite another.

    The mentality of an anti-gunner is that if all guns are outlawed, eventually nobody will have guns. They also believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. They rationalize this thought process by their belief that we, as a society, have evolved from the violence of Revolutionary America to the modern, high-tech age of benevolent cradle-to-grave government protectionism. Hey, it could happen! LOL!
