    Language violation based on the Annual meeting of The Liberal Gun Club. The meeting was held in Texas; however, it seems that most of the article was based on the range time.

    It is definitely possible to disagree on economic issues while sharing a common enjoyment of shooting sports and concern for access to legitimate means of self defense.

    EDIT: You are responsible for what you post.
    PROOF READ.

    Gun ownership shouldn't be a partisan issue. Hopefully one day the one thing all Americans agree on is the right to keep and bear arms. I don't hold my breath though. But there are defiantly socially liberal people who are staunch 2A advocates. I've known some.

    I know several people like you described also, some of them also own guns as well. But they all are totally blind to the Democrats wanting to deny everyone private gun ownership. To them this is a total non issue, they refuse to acknowledge their chosen party's stance on gun ownership.

    The best argument in favor of the 2nd A is to point out how extremely egalitarian (and liberal) the 2nd Amendment is. Any citizen can own a gun, rich or poor, black or white, religious or atheist, it's the citizens right to own a firearm. In all other times and places, it has not a right but a privilege to own a weapon, granted or taken away by someone in power. Here in the USA it's a right.

    In today's politics, if anyone supports a DemocRAT, liberal, progressive agenda, then they support having our God-given rights to be taken from us, 2A included.

    Liberals are all in favor of "Rights" - THIER Rights. Just as they fully support "Free Speech" as long as that speech agrees with their views. By definition, a "liberal" is open minded and accepting of the views and opinions of everyone.

    Liberals used to claim that their world views and opinions encompassed the widest possible range of rights, thoughts and freedoms. In truth, Liberals are the most closed minded, violent and oppressive group imaginable. They claim conservatives are small-minded and biased. In fact, the reverse is true. Conservatives that I know support the Constitution, The Bill Of Rights and ALL of the rights contained in it for EVERYONE.

    Today there is no difference between a true liberal and a true hypocrite.:twocents:

    A mental deficit that has no cure and never will.
    Until it has a direct effect on said person. Rare.

    Contrary to most viewpoints, a true liberal is not opposed to gun rights. They are for very small government interference in people's lives or how they live it. What we commonly call liberal is in reality a leftist. Leftists support governmental control, no freedoms other than those granted by the government, and above all CONTROL over the populace.

    If you support the modern Democrat political party then you by default support Gun Control and the disarming of American citizens...

    I thought that was a Libertarian, not a liberal.

    Bull. A Liberal is a communist. What you describe is a Libertarian.
