I agree fully.
I conceal carry and if in a position to save someones life I will not even ask their political views before doing so.
Your welcome libs.....
Ugh...by "libs", you probably mean Democrats, even though "liberal" and "conservative" have been so grossly twisted out of their meaning. For example, "conservatives" should be the ones pushing government to stay out of the way of gays who want to marry, and pushing the government to stay out of foreign wars. They should also be low-spenders of taxpayer money.
Anyhow, my gripe is that these broad brushes only serve the scum in power. You, obviously, think Democrat-voting citizens are anti-gun. Myself, and most of the people I know, vote Democrat in most cases, but myself, and probably 90+% of my circle of friends and family, are either gun-owners, or planning to be as soon as they can afford it. We're not irrationally scared that the "big bad libs" are going to take our guns away, despite the Constitution. That kind of thinking only serves to hurt the cause, as you assume a huge number of pro-2nd Amendment citizens are anti-2nd amendment.
Now, if you're a Rep politician, it works in your favor. Republican voters are highly motivated by their fears, and will often vote against their own self-interests, as well as against the interests of the nation, and in most cases, against Constitutional principals, mainly because thry believe false fears like "Libs dun gonna take yer guns away!" or "gay marriage is gonna male my marriage fall apart!"
This isn't all Republicans, but a large enough voting bloc is gullible and cowardly enough to think that way. Unfortunately, there's a large coalition of what you call "libs" who are pro-2nd amendment. We're not all Hollywood actors.
