    Perhaps her fear of guns is projection?
    Her criminal mind feels that she would be a danger if she had a gun, so she assumes that the same applies to everyone?

    Does this affect her ability to hold office?

    and by that I mean void her sponsorship of the bills?

    Could be worth looking into.

    Yep..And here we go!!
    These high minded individuals who want oh so much to come down on us......
    Well,lets just turn the heat up few notches on the stovetop to see what surfaces on her as well as many others who just cant resist the push to disarm the law abiding citizens of America.
    In my state of Texas those very convictions alone would have kept her from ever getting a concealed handgun permit for many years to come.
    And this person stands in judgement of a lot of us!!

    On second thought it only says ARRESTED, not convicted if I am reading it right?

    Two arrests for theft, 15 years apart....who cares if she wasn't convicted? All that tells criminals is "hey, I got caught and nothing happened!" How many other times might she have NOT been caught?

    Few things, much as it pains me sometimes :

    1. Criminal history does not necessarily bar you from office.

    2. As many here state around the board in various cases...even if they were convictions....serve your time, pay your fine, redemption and all that.

    Anyone is capable of turning their life around. Sometimes a few brushes with the law can get you to see the light.

    If we were to go skeleton in the closet trolling amongst the membership here, and gun owners at large, I'm sure we'd find a lot more than "aggravated shoplifting" and "shoplifting" in our pursuits.

    We are a nation that has been led by reformed drug addicts and cronic philanderers most recently.... and many more of those with mixed and tumultous legal history of varying degrees- including slavery- on both sides of the political divide since the founding of our union.

    There are no perfect men. There are fewer yet perfect leaders.

    If we were to give "the voice" so to speak, only to persons of angelic moral standing- we'd have a pretty quiet nation.

    I don't like her either. I'd much rather debate and challenge her based on her incorrect beliefs, and political doctrine than her human frailties.

    Much with anyone.

    In reality, that is the High Road. I think we should all take it.

    But thats just me.

    The reason she's against YOUR 2nd amendment rights is so next time she feels like breaking the law she won't have to worry about an armed citizen stopping her since she can squirm her way out if caught by anyone of public service or office.

    It's important to know the character of the people operating our government. It's wrong to keep important things hidden. Knowing their past and their known behavior/misbehavior is only part of it.

    It shouldn't always disqualify them every time, but it should be a factor in a voter's decision. It shouldn't be hidden, it should be known. It shouldn't bar them from serving the public, but it should be used as context for their service.

    A person's past should only be used against them as much as that past is reflected in their current behavior.

    Charges filed over threats against Colo. lawmaker
    POSTED: 03/04/2013 01:43:26 PM MST
    UPDATED: 03/04/2013 06:14:34 PM MSTThe Associated Press
    DENVER—A man accused of threatening a Colorado lawmaker sponsoring gun control bills has been charged with attempting to influence a public servant and harassment.
    Franklin Sain was charged Monday over messages sent to Democratic Rep. Rhonda Fields.

    Denver prosecutors allege the 42-year-old, who is white, tried to intimidate or harass Fields because she is black.

    Sain was suspended from his job as chief operating officer of an information technology firm following his arrest.

    He allegedly sent Fields a letter saying "There will be blood" and expressing hope that someone would "Gifords" her, an apparent reference to the wounding of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

    Sain's attorney said Monday that while the messages to Fields were deplorable, they were not threats.

    Fields' attorney says he agrees with the decision to file charges.

    Thats a shame. I'm sure this anti stuff makes most if not all our "blood boil" but its people like that who just fuel the antis' fire and use of threats is not the way to win these battles. We must keep our cool and use truths and facts and not let emotion get the best of us.

    Sorry that you feel that we should "forgive and forget", but these are the people that are running this country, and running it into the ground. If we don't stand up and do something to hold them accountable, then what? Just open the prisons and give 'em all a public office and throw money at them? You think it's fine for admitted criminals to have power over our lives? I think that's insane.

    But that's just me.

    I am not shocked by such information. After all, we have a healthcare bill being shoved down our throats by a guy who is a life-long cigarette smoker.

    My only issue with this sort of thing is that if this person was anything but a Democrat, they would be excoriated by the media.

    Upon further consideration, the "restricting the rights of (actual) law-abiding citizens" aspect bothers me as well.
