    Not that I expect to be up that way anytime soon, but does that invite extend to me as well?

If we as shooters, Republican or Democrat, Conservative or Liberal, can help to bridge the gap and bring more people out of the dark and show them the truth about guns and shooting, we should be able to do so in an apolitical way and educate others as to the media untruths about us and our sport. Just one range day to demonstrate safe shooting and show these people that we are normal without threatening their political views would be well worth the drive!

    I wish you luck and I hope you will keep us posted as to your success. It sounds like you are up against some hefty odds, but the way you are going, I think you will definitely experience some success! Keep up the good work!
    That's one of the goals of the Pinkpistols, showing the truth about guns to the gay and lesbian portion of the population.

    I would welcome the change, but first I'll have to see it before I believe it.
    Not all Democrats have been or are now anti-gun.

    Here's one Harold Volkmer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And a more current one Heath Shuler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Also keep in mind that North Carolina, that great big bastion of Yankie Liberalism has had a Democratic Governor for the past few terms.

    To anyone on here that finds themselves in Portland and wants to go to a range; and is willing to have a civil time of it. I don't mind civil political debates; but when people write you off solely because of a chosen party affiliation...

    Note: In my life, I have been registered Democrat, Republican, and not-affiliated. I have found that to have greatest impact, though, I have to pick one of the big two. And as the Republican party of late has become the party of exclusion, whereas the Democratic party has been one of inclusion, I chose D. If I tried to get anywhere in the Republican party with my social beliefs (pro-gay marriage, pro choice, pro physician assisted suicide, and at least a willingness to consider universal healthcare, a lá Massachusetts success and Oregon's withdrawn attempt,) I'd be decried instantly as a "RINO", and essentially chased out. At least in the Democratic party, there are people willing to accept my leanings on things like guns, not-sycophantic-devotion to unions, etc. The party whose platform I fall closest with is probably the Libertarian party, but even that party seems to have gone a little off-platform recently. The combination of not sticking to their core beliefs combined with their complete lack of influence makes it pointless to try to do anything with them. (Same goes for Green and other marginalized third parties.)
