Even though the quote about gun control wasn't accurate, I sure can't argue with it. :)

Note the cluelessness of the Democrat.

"The College Dems do not believe that focusing on the Second Amendment should be the priority of anyone genuinely committed to the preservation of the entire Bill of Rights and our Constitution," he said in an e-mail interview.

See? Junior representatives of the Democratic (sic) party are still on top of things at my old Alma Mater, (which continues to flood me with requests for dontations that go directly into the waste basket.)

Nice link to a link



College Libertarians chair Jeremy Linden reached his hand deep into a white box yesterday and pulled out a raffle ticket. He then read out the number, and University alum Laura Dodd stood up, holding the winning ticket.

Dodd walked to the front of the room, shook a few people's hands and smiled for a picture with Linden.

She had just won a gun.

In support of gun rights, the College Libertarians gave away the gun last night in front of 100 people the Pendleton Room of the Michigan Union.

Because it is illegal to carry a firearm on campus, the group will take Dodd to purchase a gun of her choice at another time.

Dodd said she already owns one gun and uses it for home safety as well as target shooting.

When asked what type of gun she was interested in, she said "something concealable."

Linden said the event was "intended to shock" and that it would "bring attention to an issue (College Libertarians) believe in."

Before the unveiling of the winner, two supporters of gun rights addressed the crowd.

Mike Thiede, president of Michigan Gun Owners, an organization dedicated to defending firearm rights in Michigan, told the audience about gun registration in Michigan.

University alum Neva Li, secretary for the Shooters' Alliance for Firearm Rights, spoke about the importance of gun ownership.

"SAFR supports a 100 percent end to gun control," she said.

Li is an ardent advocate for women's gun ownership for self-defense. She teaches self-defense classes through an National Rifle Association program.

When the winner was announced - one of only five women in the audience - Li smiled ecstatically and said, "A chick won the gun!"

The group also gave away three free memberships to Michigan Gun Owners.

Linden said the event was intended to "extend the message of Libertarians to others."

College Democrats chair Jamie Ruth disagreed with the group's message.

"The College Dems do not believe that focusing on the Second Amendment should be the priority of anyone genuinely committed to the preservation of the entire Bill of Rights and our Constitution," he said in an e-mail interview.

Ruth questioned why the College Libertarians have made the Second Amendment a priority while "the Bush administration has condoned violations of the First, Fourth and Sixth Amendments."

College Libertarians got the idea from a similar event held at University of Illinois, Linden said.



A neat idea and good news coverage except:
"The College Dems do not believe that focusing on the Second Amendment should be the priority of anyone genuinely committed to the preservation of the entire Bill of Rights and our Constitution," he said in an e-mail interview.

Ruth questioned why the College Libertarians have made the Second Amendment a priority while "the Bush administration has condoned violations of the First, Fourth and Sixth Amendments."


How does focusing on the 2nd Amendment impede one's ability to protect the others? And why do the Dems feel the need to bring up President Bush and his policies when the event had nothing to do with him and was in no way affiliated with Bush, the Republican Party or the Administration?:scrutiny:

"Having removed her pacifier for 6 seconds, Ruth questioned why the College Libertarians have made the Second Amendment a priority while "the Bush administration has condoned violations of the First, Fourth and Sixth Amendments.""

Is that what the quote said?

If it ain't about Bush-- as in, hatred towards him-- then the Dems aren't interesting in anything. :rolleyes:

I don't care if it gets me in trouble here, the entire party is a bunch of selfish idiots.

I'm an "Old Blue" as well and all of their requests for donations also go at once into the round file- I feel fortunate that I got out of there without giving in to their liberalism- They don't call themselves "The Harvard of the West" for nothing- :rolleyes:

They misquoted her on the gun control thing, but like I said, no biggie..not like its not true. But the "facts" are that one of the Libertarians said they were 100% opposed and she just said it sounded good to her.

Supposed to be the Michigan Review tomorrow. I think college political groups are a good place to start getting the message out, though..a lot of these people are future political types.

If the requests come in postage paid envelopes, send the envelopes back, perhaps with info received from PETA or AARP.

I think Democrats can't help themselves. It's a reflext to blame George Bush for everything, including the weather.:D

I hope this spreads across the country.:)

My seriously anti sister went to UofM....

I wonder if she saw that....

Hm.... I wonder if she figured out how to use her e-mail.... :banghead:

She's still getting over finding out that I was carrying when I visited her farm a couple weeks ago. :evil:

(The countergal at DFW apparently wanted me to stay in TX, too. She almost forgot the declaration card, and then when I reminded her, had to call somebody to find out where they were.... Good thing I knew the rules.... :neener: )

Regards,
