Have you forgotten the Clinton administration already, or were you not yet born?
Hell, Grady, I remember FORD, you should know by now I'm one of our older (though not exactly wiser) members. I am well aware that democrats have
typically been in favor of gun control, and that some rallied for it harder than others.
Still, painting the agendas of an entire political party with the same brush is foolish, and even more so is defining the paint as one solid color
rather than various hues. It's extremely easy and lazy to say all democrats want to remove the 2nd Amendment and take away our guns, but it doesn't
make it true.
I mean, really, think about it. What you are basically accusing Democrats of is wanting to rescind one of our 10 prime rights in the Constitution.
That's absurd. Perhaps the most extreme leftist liberal democrats might consider such a thing, but don't go assuming that of the entire party.
There is a huge difference between wanting to have at least some token measure of control over the sale of guns, and the desire to rescind the 2nd
Ammendment. And I'm surprised that you of all people would fall into the trap of not seeing that difference, you normally have a much more lucid
outside view of things.
A lot has changed since Democrats were last in power. The world has changed, America has changed, and a whole new generation of voters has come to the
polls while another has died off. Before going and denouncing an entire half of your nation, how about you let them serve a day in office first, and
see what they do, rather than what their predecessors did.
