    ^^^^^^^That quiz isn't going to do anything. You can tell what the aim of it is right from the start and it's the same thing people say to try to convert them anyway.

    This thread has been a pleasant surprise.

    It is sometimes odd to see how many people WANT to be labeled. Conservative vs liberal, democrat vs republican, convert your friends one way or the other. It’s a “package deal” right?

    If you support this one issue then they let you know how you HAVE to think on all the other issues. Come on guys/girls, why do some of you buy into this, or worse, propagate the idea?

    There are a lot of issues that we face as a nation and as people. There always has been and always will be. Most of those issues deserve thought and attention and last time I checked, we are FREE to draw our own conclusions about EACH issue. Gun perspective is just one of those issues.

    I’ll be damned if some candidate is going to get my unconditional support because of one issue. I’ll be damned if they will get my unconditional support because they are part of one party.

    Their expectation that you will automatically give that support should offend you as an American. It’s really nice to see that there are others that agree.

    This thread isn't really about the RKBA. There are plenty gun forums that double as Republican echo chambers - the High Road isn't supposed to function like that (or so I thought).

    NinjaFeint,

    Most members at THR are actually libertarian.

    I might've missed it, but it seems like the focus is on converting liberal anti-RKBAers to support 2A.

    What about strategies for converting conservative anti-RKBAers? Any difference?

    I don't want to convert anybody. Having said that, I want every 2nd ammendment supporter to speak your mind to your elected representatives in support of pro-gun legislature at all levels. Don't become indifferent and complacent that our gun rights will never erode. We have a good thing in the 2nd Amnt. Let's not lose our right to keep and bear arms, friends!! I like my hobby.:D

    Interesting thread. I tend not to see issues as liberal, conservative, left wing, right wing, Republican, Democrat, etc. These are just words, words that mean different things to different people, to some they are insults, others symbols of pride, to people like me they mean absolutely nothing. The effective meanings are so dissimilar from user to user it's no wonder they creative so much controversy, anger and hate among people.

    If you are determined to think two dimensionally in an "us versus them" scenario, I would suggest that "us" refer to the gun advocate and "them" refer to the would be gun taker. The truth is, none of you can claim to be the advocate or the taker 100% of the time, like all parts of adult life, things aren't black or white, on or off.

    What I encourage from people is free, independent thinking, not politically fueled rhetoric, which is what most of this thread is. Why isn't this locked yet?
