    This was in response to the Brady form letter I mailed out from their website with a few of my own "corrections" haha

    Isn't Murtha a hardcore anti???

    It's Bizzaro world lately with some of the stuff coming out of these politicians mouths this week... I try to be optimistic, but I am a realist. Maybe if they are not waking up, they at least realize more of their voting base is... That's all we need anyway!

    I can see a lot of them pulling a flip flop here to keep their politico positions, the pigs are at the trough and they like the feed, why jeopardize their position in the chow line.

    prediction: The D's will use the VT not for gun control, but for a reason to support state health care.

    I remember Murtha being talked up as "hard-core pro-gun-owner" during his fight with Hoyer over the Majority Leader job.

    You forgot to highlight this part... :)

    and they left out:

    ...disregarding the second Amendment and contrary to the laws of most states.

    What do you base that on?

    NRA "A" rated.

    PS GOA gives him a "B-" but they are so partisan, they have little credibility with me.

    Murtha

    has been a reliable pro-gun vote through most of his 30-year Congressional career.

    I don't care for his stance on Iraq, but he probably doesn't like mine, either. This ain't The High (Iraq) Road list.

    Our true pro-gun Democrat friends have saved us a few times. Let's not alienate them.

    GOA compromises our rights far less than the NRA. I'm a member of both, but if I had to pick one, GOA would win hands down. Murtha looks to be on the right side of this issue.

    What Is Best Is Not Prevention

    It's an unachievable goal. What's best is preparedness to meet the problem when it arises. That means some law abiding citizens around with guns on them.

    That said, a certain amount of intervention might be possible, but unless the subject is disturbed enough to show symptoms, most will go unnoticed and it'll only catch a few. Cho is one of those who should have been "caught".

    Woody

    A law that says you cannot fire your gun in the middle of downtown unless in self defense is not unconstitutional. Laws that prohibit brandishing except in self defense or handling your gun in a threatening or unsafe manner would not be unconstitutional. Laws can be written that govern some of the uses of guns. No law can be written that infringes upon buying, keeping, storing, carrying, limiting caliber, limiting capacity, limiting quantity, limiting action, or any other limit that would infringe upon the keeping or bearing of arms. That is the truth and simple reality of the limits placed upon government by the Second Amendment to the Constitution. B.E.Wood

    He's good on guns. Most Military men are. They're not all Reps, many are Dems. He still stuck by what he said and took heat for about the war. He's a rock, write that man a thank you letter.
