    "Gun Lobby"?

    That's funny. I thought lobbyists' jobs involved sucking up to Congresscritters, not filing lawsuits.

    Did something change since yesterday? Do lobbyists file lawsuits, now?

    Did I miss something about the new role of lobbyists in the Heller decision?

    It's civil rights organization. The right it seeks to protect just happens to be one specified in the 2nd amendment.

    Make sure you guys post a comment. There is a link on the page to post. Overwhelmingly, people support the 2nd Amendment. It's a great thing.

    I am so confused, what is this "Gun Lobby" they keep talking about???
    do they mean us? the private citizens who want to protect our rights??

    who are these politicians who are not afraid to take on the "gun lobby", i mean for crying out loud, do they not understand that the NRA is made up of the public??????

    Stick it to Chicago, they need to to get with the program anyway. Its their fault (Chicago) that the state is so wacked out

    Most gun stores don't have a lobby.:)

    Beretta Galleries, and the like, probably do, but otherwise there aren't many gun lobbies.
