It's not all Conservatives. I consider myself a moderate with strong Libertarian leanings. Not everyone is as stubborn about fitting you into a conveniently pre-packaged stereotype. What I find interesting is how some of these loudmouths will cry foul when someone in the media wrongly tries to paint gun owners as a bunch of paranoid redneck gun-nuts, but as soon as someone around here speaks up having political views an inch to the left of Rush Limbaugh they get the McCarthy treatment.
By fighting among ourselves we play right into the anti-gun gameplan. Divide and conquer. Some folks get it, some don't.
Which is precisely why I attempted to open this dialogue in the first place.
