    The NYT published an article on Obama's demagogic speech waving the red shirt on Newtown.

    The comments are full of anti's, but there are some voices of reason. Unfortunately they're being drowned out. The leading anti comment has 58 votes. The leading pro-2A has 17.

    Yes it gives them a click. But it's important to make our voice heard, if only to provide social support, so that gun owners in anti-gun environments don't feel shamed and silenced.

    Here is the text of the comment.

    "Now’s the time to push back on fear and frustration and misinformation."
    -- B. Obama
    Obama said it better than anyone else could have. And that's exactly why so many left-leaning gun owners who despise the NRA are opposing Obama and the anti-gun extremists. We're sick of the lies, distortions, and fear mongering they've done in their rush to ram their pre-packaged agenda through Congress.

    We're also disgusted that Obama and the anti-gun extremists have used the deaths of innocent school children as pawns to make the general public fearful of sending their kids to school, which is still the safest place to be in the country.

    If Obama had wanted to have a rational debate, many gun owners would have agreed. But a rational debate was the last thing that he, Biden, and other anti-gun extremists wanted.

    Obama might have fired up his base, but he lost a lot of Democratic-leaning gun owners in the process. I come from a battleground state that can go either way in elections. The Democrats I voted for in 2012 won by a narrow margin. I've always voted Democrat in past elections. I'm pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, and for many other causes the liberals support. But I won't be voting Democrat any more.​

    Be as specific as possible in letters and calls, citing the bill in question. Of course it's difficult to figure out exactly what's going on in the Senate at the moment. Coburn is still working behind the scenes on *something*, but nobody knows what it is exactly. I'm hoping we can get some kind of acceptable GOP alternative that, even though it won't pass, will give our people something to vote *for* as opposed to just voting against everything.
