    The NRA did not endorse Harry Reid.

    Paul Helmke Republican
    Josh Sugarman Republican
    Sarah Brady Republican
    James Brady Republican
    Michael Bloomberg Republican

    Richard Nixon Republican
    In 1969, journalist William Safire asked Richard Nixon what he thought about gun control. "Guns are an abomination," Nixon replied. According to Safire, Nixon went on to confess that, "Free from fear of gun owners' retaliation at the polls, he favored making handguns illegal and requiring licenses for hunting rifles."
    Ronald Reagan Republican
    It was Governor Ronald Reagan of California who signed the Mulford Act in 1967, "prohibiting the carrying of firearms on one's person or in a vehicle, in any public place or on any public street." The law was aimed at stopping the Black Panthers, but affected all gun owners.

    Twenty-four years later, Reagan was still pushing gun control. "I support the Brady Bill," he said in a March 28, 1991 speech, "and I urge the Congress to enact it without further delay."
    Rudi Giuliani Republican
    One of the most aggressive gun control advocates today is Republican mayor Rudolph Giuliani of New York City, whose administration sued 26 gun manufacturers in June 2000, and whose police commissioner, Howard Safir, proposed a nationwide plan for gun licensing, complete with yearly "safety" inspections.

    Yup it's those damn libs you gotta look out for
    I don't think you understand what liberal and conservative means. It has nothing to do with political party. Although most conservatives are Republican and most liberals are Democrats neither is a requirement. More than likely you yourself are a conservative Democrat and don't even know it...

    I know this is a sensitive issue, but there is no need to become hostile. Reasonable people can disagree without vitriol.
    But they did not endorse Harry Reid in the last election. Someone put out the idea that he might be endorsed, but he was not.

    I am not sure what you mean by your comment. There are certainly conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans. Republican Senator Olympia Snowe from Maine comes to mind and Democrat Representative Dan Boren from Oklahoma is an example of conservative Democrat. Boren is on the Board of the NRA, voted against Obamacare and other Obama schemes. There are other examples, both current and past.

    Conservative is the important classification, not Republican.

    Gentlemen, If you are the least bit curious about which political party shares your political beliefs, or you want to see where you stand within your party, take The Political Compass (Test). It's on the web. The test has about 50 politically charged questions that you have 4 ways to reply. You choose from; Agree, Strongly Agree, Disagree, and Strongly Disagree.

    The danger of labels is that they do not allow for individuality. You have republicans who support issues like gay marriage and democrats who don't. Not all democrats are anti-gun. I prefer to judge via actions on issues that I care about. I do not care what party one is in...I have no party affiliation...if one boos soldiers, gay or not, cheers death (no I am not against the death penalty, but I do not celebrate death as an idea). Freedom of speech is like sunlight...it exposes hidden foolishness and ignorance, the dirt laying in the corners.

    I am in the bottom left of the Libertarian center. Wow, It's no wonder things are so screwed up. I've been casting my vote to the wrong side for 30 years!

    You are correct. This old guy's memory skipped a cog in his response. I apologize.
