I am not condoning Romney's past actions in any form or fashion, I am also pissed off that the liberal media once again chose the Republican candidate. Of the original candidates, Romney would not have been over halfway up my list.
But it is what it is.
Silver spoon people have no real identification with guns. Bottom line. Oh, they may have taken out some clay pigeons with a fowling iron, and as a kid they may have talked their bodyguard to let them hold his pistol, but that's about it. There were no Saturday afternoons down at the quarry or gravel pit, no mornings climbing into a tree stand or duck blind at oh-dark-thirty with sleet falling and the temperature hovering right around 32F. No looking with envy at some guy's brand new ____________. (fill in the blank with whatever gun you'd love to have but can't justify the cost)
Politicians say what will get them elected whether they believe it or not. Do you honestly believe that any of the original nine Republican candidates actually care whether or not you can own an AR? Or be able to CC or OC a handgun? Or any other weapon or action that pushes the envelope of the Second Amendment?
Face it, there are very few gun enthusiasts in the upper crust.
I said in another thread that I really don't trust Mitt Romney with my Second Amendment rights. I don't. Unless he happens to the the CEO of a gun manufacturer, I would prefer not to trust those rights to anyone with a seven-figure income.
But I damn sure don't want to trust my Second Amendment rights to anyone with a "D" beside their name, because I know exactly where they stand whether they admit it or not. Obama would take your gun faster than a cat can lick its azz.
