    When you vote, is 2nd Amendment your primary issue, or do other issues (economic, social, foreign policy, crime etc) take precedence?

    Nothing else matters near as much.

    Item: I don't trust a politician that doesn't trust me.

    Item: if we don't keep our guns, we don't keep our freedom. Period.

    I can't trust a government that doesn't trust armed citizens.

    Do you vote your guns?

    Absolutely! Guns are liberty's teeth (was that George Washington or Thomas Jefferson?). It is natural for even animals (apologies to my gorgeous Alaskan Malamute, Zeudi) to fight for their lives. Are we humans not worth as much?

    Speaking frankly, I feel utter contempt for those, especially politicians who would offer "reasons" why I should not have the right to protect my loved ones or myself.

    Always, and I try to talk as many people as possible into voting the gun issue as well.

    Absolutely, in every election. In fact the only sticker on my truck says, "Vote Freedom First".

    I've had to tell many gun-owning Democratic voters recently about the saying, "The man who wants to take your guns is NOT your friend." This was in response to their inevitable line that 'they are the party of the working man.' :banghead:

    Yes, but let me add a rider to this question. If you had one very pro gun Republican and a moderately pro gun Democrat would you vote for the Democrat based on another issue? :scrutiny:

    Oy! That's easy. I generally vote against incumbents. It's not that they're democrats, but that their anti Second Amendment. Throw the rascals out!

    I don't think the 2A is a single issue ...

    If someone wants to take away one of our god-given and constitutionally protected rights, then what does that say about their politics in general?

    I don't want somebody in DC or state capitol to create jobs or support education or some other BS, I just want them to leave us the heck alone and let us get on with life.

    I vote the bill of rights with a heavy emphasis on the second amendment.

    I would take a silent Republican over a silent Democrat since (for the moment) I would place my money on the GOP (over the DNC) to help restore/preserve our 2A rights. Even an anti-gun Republican will vote for GOP leadership, which would at least give us a fighting chance. With the current Democratic leadership, I don't think anything other than anti-gun legislation will ever make it out of committee (on the federal level).

    I'm one of those stupid, Massachusetts Kennedy Democat types (although registered Independent). I vote for silly things like health care for the uninsured, lower prescription cost for the eldery, jobs and social services -- and if that candidate is pro-gun, you got my vote. I'm sick of the wealthy being protected in these hard times and those in need getting the shaft.:scrutiny:

    Freedom is my primary issue.

    Everything else comes behind that.

    Mastrogiacomo, please see my sig quote.
