Why should this surprise anyone? Many folks (including Ann Coulter) warned that he was NOT as conservative as some people thought.

Hey that's not fair! Its not like he was George Soros' protege or anything.

Er, he WAS George Soros' favored candidate?

Never mind.

Someone should remind Governator Arnold Kennedy Shriver that ********** already has a state level assault weapons ban and ask him to point out exactly which of the dogs in this fight belongs to him.

Well, well, well. What a surprise.

And for those who say that Arnie can't do anything to pass the AWB renewal, I'd say that, being the Gov of California, Arnie must have some pull.

Let's see....

We're talking about the Governor of California, who only has his office because of the incredible incompetence of his predecessor, who happens to be married to a Kennedy, who, in spite of his action-movie actor status, has never been a gun-rights kinda guy, now announces he's all for an extension of the AWB.

Surprized? No way. I'd be surprized if he'd announced that he's for the death of the ban.

But remember, he secretly give lots of money to gun rights organizations so, *winkwink* he's OK...:barf:

Anyone who thought he was anything other than a gun grabbing RINO was seriously confused.

AFAIK, lifting the Federal AWB would have no discernalbe effect here in Calif anyway, we have our own set of banned "assault weapons".:(

Is there a place in the US where you could still have a Daewoo USAS-12 fully automatic 12 gauge shotgun with a 20-round drum magazine? If so, in how many states and how long will it last?

Don't think there are any states where you can own that unless you are a Class 3 SOT and got a LE agency to sign letters for it. None of them were registered as MGs before 1986 so all of them are either semi-auto Destructive Devices or untransferable to civilians.

How do you become a class III? Kind of off-topic, but with the AWB thing later this year and all...

Don't believe it, don't believe it!!!
Arnold is a conservative Republican.
He believes in your rights especially the 2nd!
He is part of the neo-conservatives.


Yeah, and I've got some great property to sell you in Florida!

All jokes aside, I have told and told and told my friends and relatives who seem to love this man that he is our enemy.

Don't much care about Arnie's opinion of the Federal AW ban as he has no say in the matter. What I am concerned about it what he'll do when gun control bills start showing up on HIS desk.

Arnold is screwing the pooch on this one.

I sense a deal being cut behind the scene with Feinswine or her ilk. :scrutiny:

Jim March was right. There was a stealth candidate.

I'll bet Arnie has more of a say at the national level than you would think.

He denounced and renounced his father. He would not even attend his father's funeral when he died. To call him a Nazi is not a fair statement.

We call people Nazis every day using the term as descriptive of their politics and actions. In this case, the term is being used as factual; that he actually is a true Nazi adherent because his father was a true Nazi adherent.

Ya think that those of you who have driven into the ditch can find your way clear to get back up on the road?

Yes, this will be a cheap shot:

Where exactly are the people who claimed Schwarzenegger was a "stealth pro gun candidate"?

< sarcasam >It seems to me that Schwarzenegger is really good at the "stealth" part. Maybe someone should tell him the election's over. Or is he being stealthy for a future election? Thta must be it: after his election to his second term as U.S. president (assuming that amend the constitution to allow it) then he'll come out as a pro-gun guy. Damn but that boy can act - never would have thought it from his movies, but he has this "pretend to be anti-gun thing down until it's safe to admit to being pro-gun" down cold. Hell, if I didn't know better I'd think he was an anti! < / sarcasm >

Schwarzenegger was makign anti-gun statements before & during his campaign. No surpise that he's making them afterwords.

As Governor he doesn't have that much influence with national politics. However as a shinign star in the republican camp he does have some sway. I don't think it'll affect things that much, but he could be an effective PR asset for republicans like Bush who support the ban.

Bush pressuring congress would damn near ensure the AWB get srenewed & there's a chance that Schwarzenegger will (thourgh example or discussion) prompt Bush to take a more active role in renweing the AWB.

< sarcasm > Too bad there wasn't a non-stealth pro gun conservative like McClintock running for offie last year. < / sarcasm >

What? Another Republican supporting an AWB? No! Say it aint so! It just can't be! Can it?

Yes!

Let's hear it:

Three cheers for the Republican Party! Unwavering supporters of Amendment II!

Hip Hip Hooray!
Hip Hip Hooray!
Hip Hip Hooray!

And as a Jew, I suppose I, more than anyone else, should apologize.

I'll apologize, after his father apologizes.

If he really denounced his father, and what his father stood for, then he would truly, utterly, completely grasp what disarming the citizenry does. NEVER AGAIN is not a nicety, like "Gesuntheit"-it is a vow.


I don't believe I even have to explain this here, with you people.

I don't think principal has a thing to do with Ahnuld's positions.

He is just like any other politician. Raw political power. Principal is not the point. Power is the point.

If he is required to adopt a principal antagonistic to his stated principals in order to gain power, he will do so.

The Issue is Power. The Issue is not Principal.

And to that point he is no different than any other politician.

Try this for an interesting mind experiment. Make a list of principals for which republicans are willing to stand. Then tell us about it 'cause I'd really like to see what they stand for.

:D Purty-pleeze with sugar on it, Waitone! "Principle". You're not talkin' about the Boss of a school, or the amount of a bank loan.

<sarcasm>

But, I voted for him because McClintock couldn't win! And he's a republican, so he's GOTTA defend my 2A rights.

</sarcasm>

If every gun owner in the state voted for the candidate with a pro gun position, we wouldn't have this...
