    Sadly, I doubt that the 2A is safe in the hands of either of the 2 major parties anymore. McCain doesn't exactly have a great track-record of voting pro-2A every single time. I guess he is still a little better than these socialist Utopian nut-cases in the Dem party. The donkey (ass) is a great logo for them.

    When will we finally ditch these two failing parties?

    OOPS... back to activism. Maybe we can show them how it feels by waging some attacks on the 1A which they seem to believe is the only amendment. I bet a good attorney could come up with some good "damages" caused by the liberals in the media.

    Unfortunately, the 1A is our right too... might just end up self defeating.

    Biden HHHACKPTOO is my Senator.
    About 15 years ago I was at the Kosczuczko day Parade in Wilmington DE. (Thaddeus Kosczuczko General and Hero of the Revolutionary war). I lived in the Polish neighborhood Browntown then. I was out in front of my house watching the Parade and there was Joe walking down the sidewalk pressing the flesh. Apprporiately he was following the Shriners in their little clown cars. So I decided to ask him why he was so opposed to the Second Amendment as he was shaking my hand. He said:

    "why do you care about guns they are only for killing people and we are not at war"

    I said target shooting is my hobby.

    He looked me in the eye and said:


    And then he walked away smiling and shaking hands.

    There is no more anti gun politician than Biden Period. Now I have heard the story about him owning a shotgun and shooting trap/ skeet and duck hunting. Its a load of crap, I know his daughter Ashley having met her recently at work. I aksed her about the story, and if she went trap shooting with her dad. She told me that He has never owned a gun and doesn't hunt or trap shoot (after I explained to her what trap shooting is). She is a very nice young lady and I take her word for it.

    Northwest IL--the other 'Downstate'
    *He* just finished his speech.
    He re-ennumerated ALL of the party planks point-for-point--more-or-less in order as they were announced a week ago.

    We all heard.

    Wow. Like wow. I honestly don't mean to be rude, but I don't see how anyone can think that Biden being on the ticket makes the Dem ticket any more pro AWB. Maybe I take it for granted since I'm suffering at the hands of these gun banning elites in the greater Chicagoland area, but Obama is just ANTI-GUN in general. I believe that this state is the only state where you have to show your "papers" before you are allowed to purchase ammo or even reloading components. There is a reason that Obama's state is referred to as The People's Republic of Illinois.

    For Obama, guns have always seemed to be just "one of those other issues." He hasn't bothered to get all that involved in it, and his record consists primarily of a few votes on other people's legislation that he knew little about but felt compelled to sign onto, and a couple answers on questionnaires.

    Biden, on the other hand, is a crusader, and banning "assault weapons" seems to be his personal Holy War. He was the only candidate in the YouTube primary debate to address the issue (and he did so by questioning the sanity of the AR-15 owner), he has consistently been at the forefront of gun-ban efforts even when they were politically a really bad idea, etc.

    I could see Obama leaving the gun issue alone in order to avoid rocking the boat too badly. I can't see Biden doing that; he has treated it too much like a jihad in the past.

    I could be pleasantly surprised, of course, but I don't have my hopes up, and the campaign has been more vocally anti-gun since Biden joined the ticket. I am wondering if that is Biden's doing; Obama said he wanted someone who would "challenge his thinking," and that worries me.

    I knew this would happen. The best way to preserve our gun rights. Don't vote for Obama.
