Do you know any Dem/Lib/Left gun owners?

    I asked this question to a member on another thread;
    "Are people that don't fall lockstep in line with your political ideology not good enough to help support R2BA? Can you just do without us?"

    And to my surprise I got this answer;
    "No I don't welcome socialists into our ranks because I know that someday you will want to turn the governments gun in my direction."

    Wow. I make an effort to step outside the gun owner echo chamber and bring in people from other political leanings and being the hardcore leftist that so many here have pegged me as I know a lot of people that actually are hardcore leftists and I've turned them onto shooting. Lots of people over many years.

    I tend to not think in black and white "yer wit us or yer agin us" mentality and actually realize that there are blue dog democrats that have good voting records where gun control is concerned. I know because I've voted for a few of them. It's often my single issue. I like to think that bringing more people into our hobby might affect the way they vote and maybe they'll look for those candidates if they want to enjoy the new firearm they just bought. Dunno, seems like a good way to go about it.

    What do you think? Do you have no use for Second Amendment support from the left?

    We know you. That's at least one. Don't be so touchy. I noticed you didn't even mention my response to you, and took out of context the response from another poster that you quoted. Clever how you clipped that quote to put it into the best light to illustrate your victimhood.

    Which led me to dig up the pic above.

    Yes I do. Others often feel they are responsible for their own safety.

    Odd though, they don't want their friends to know.

    Out of context that didn't really change the meaning of what I did post. All in the interest of brevity. I know, not really my thing but still. Link to the full post if you think it's so scandalous. And I didn't mention you? Aw, poor guy. Who thinks highly of himself now?
     
  7. There are plenty of liberal gun owners. Go look at the DU gun forum. There are more than a few liberals who understand and support 2A.

    However, while they may claim to support gun ownership and the 2nd Amendment, those very same liberal/progressive gun owners continually vote for politicians who would love nothing more than to grab their guns along with yours and mine. :steamed:

    One must remember that as crazy as we think many of them are, many of them think the same way about anyone who doesn't share their progressive views.

    Didn't really? Had to quantify that? But it did change what he said. Sometimes, honesty is better than brevity. You didn't link to the thread either, which would have been a reasonable move.

    Not mentioning me was not an issue of me feeling left out, but an issue of you failing to mention that you also got support, also changing what would have been an honest representation of the conversation. Lies of omission are still lies.

    I have an assignment for you.

    It's not that there are not liberals who don't like to shoot. There are. I know some. It's that they would trade that right to shoot and own guns for other things more important to them as liberals.

    Like socialism. :supergrin:

    Leftists want to keep their weapons, they just don't want anybody else have them. They will keep voting for liberals. It typical of their behavior.

    For example, they will escape a leftist state like cali, only to take their liberal ideology and voting habits and eventually turning the state they fled to into the state they left.

    That has often made me wonder if Texas should not secure our northern border first. No Kalifornians allowed. :dunno:

    I consider myself to be an independent as I vote based upon my perception of a candidates priorities and capabilities, not because of their party affiliation. That being said, I lean left on most social issues and am moderately conservative in economic and foreign policy issues, but with a constructivist/realist blend. In any event, I will most likely be voting for Pres. Obama in November for pragmatic reasons, which I am sure will result in my being labeled as a liberal fascist commie socialist lefty nazi by some of this forums mouth-breathing basement dwellers.

    I own many guns, carry daily, hunt as often as possible, and compete in many firearms disciplines.

    They are a scourge on society reminiscent of the locust hordes that ravaged the plains.

    I don't understand this either/or mindset. Like somehow we can only have either what all liberals want or what all conservatives want (as if everyone on either side all wanted exactly the same things) instead of a mix of both, which is exactly what we have now. :dunno:

    Quit yer whining. I live next door to the Twitshine State.

    My town is full of them for the holiday. They all love it here and can't wait to make it more like Kommifornia.

    The good news is, the LGS is doing a land office business in case lots of ammo, and they aren't selling to Californicators.

    I really do not understand the liberal mindset that government is responsible for the care and well being of it's citizens. There are very limited rolls that government is to do but the key word here being very limited.

    It blows me away that a liberal will trust the government with all weapons and feel comfortable not being able to posess them to preserve and protect his own life. I just do not get it.

    one centrist co-worker gladly voted obama in 08, but joined in the gun-ammo buying craze after he won in fear he would crack down on the 2A....:dunno:

    It's part of that "Dream World" they live in. They 'Dream" socialism will work in spite of the facts, They "Dream" that Government is a good thing, and the more of it the better, They "Dream" that giving up rights and not taking personal responsibility will make them "Free".

    In short, they are Lotus Eating Nutjobs.
