If people who own guns and love Liberty, continue to vote based on "other" issues, onerous bills will continue to be brought before the house and senate at both local and national levels. This will keep happening. Many, many gun owners "sent a message" to the RNC and now are crying in their collective hands because of what was wrought.
We cannot continue voting to send messages, to support a cause other than the 2nd Amendment; Period, if we want to retain our constitutional rights.
What is wrong with our government is also what is wrong with us. I have a long record of voting for one issue only, period. I know there are others who do the same. I don't want to know how you voted. I am just saying, this is our problem, not the NRA's or the GOA's for that matter.
As a matter of fact, the trend with the NRA to compromise rather than take a hard line is our fault too. Vote. Use the power given you. Put the ILA on vacation ("be ever vigilant") by voting out these liberal, left wing so & so's in government at the local, state and national level, even on the school board and in the NRA.
There are; by some accounts, 82,000,000 gun owners in this country. That represents a voting majority. If you are a gun owner and voted other than "Right", You "ARE" the problem.
