I found a link to this on facebook of all places.

VERY good read.

(Great summations of the fears of the 'gun culture' the failures of the previous ban and the manufactured term 'assault weapon'. Good statistical facts, and well written.)

The take away from this well-written piece (and the title of the thread, unfortunately) is that firearms rights/RKBA are not a "conservative" or "liberal" issue. It is an "American Citizen" issue, and there are allies and enemies all over the political spectrum. Let's not fall into the trap of thinking that "conservatives" hold some kind of moral high ground in understanding the importance and value of RKBA and be surprised/amazed when a leftist, liberal, or progressive has a pro RKBA voice.

If firearms owners wish to have continued security of their natural rights, we're going to have to STOP trying to fit the world into this political paradigm. Honestly, nothing about firearms enthusiasts annoys me more than the assumption that being a gun owner is somehow linked to being a conservative or Republican. It is an example of very narrow-minded and ignorant thinking (and unfortunately typical of a lot of other issues that American citizens have opinions on, too).

The #1 thing that firearms owners can do to ensure our continued ability to exercise our Constitutional rights is to recognize (and embrace) that there are firearms owners, enthusiasts, and pro RKBA supporters all over the political spectrum, just as there are enemies to firearms freedom from all over the political spectrum.
