Fannie73, we actually do have a patriotic duty to own firearms because of the 2nd amendment gives us the right to protect ourselves from tyrants. Draconian gun laws only keep law abiding citizens from procuring protection for them.
BTW, I still hear crickets from you and ASmith on the Debt Ceiling blog when you said this;
Funkie apparently doesn't know what is meant by "self parody," though he seems to like engaging in it.
My response has been posted over 1 day and 4 hours and counting; what say U?
Amen Seb...the current administration has raised gun sales by 700%!!! With that said, I am member of the NRA, I will be the first to admit that 95% of the current message is propaganda at best. However, the message of lawful firearm ownership rings true. If this right is lost it will be an uphill fight to re-establish a reasonable status quo. The other side of the argument has some questionable endstates as well. I can only hope that a objective approach produces actionable items that really do address the problem at hand.
