    Union members, your on this site, so I will guess you own an
    "assault rifle", Glock or some other equally vile device that has the ability to accept an ammunition feeding device that holds ten or more rounds. How strenuously do you contact the NRA F rated Senator or Representative that you voted for for economic reasons that is now supporting taking your guns?

    Any conversations with your keepers, I mean Union leaders about how that politician is not looking so great now?

    That is actually a VERY good question! How DO union members reconcile supporting the very politicians who now wish to take away their firearms?

    I refer back to my Trolololololo. How is being part of a Union determine how you vote. I don't see that as congruant. Some folks pay Union dues simply to have hedge between themselves and overbearing overreaching management. It has nothing to do with how you vote.

    As a former union member, I can only say that I imagine they have a broader view of what is important to them than what type of gun they own.

    I pay union dues only because its required for my chosen field. If I could get by without it, I would. Not every union member can be painted with such a broad brush, some of us just see it as a necessary evil that keeps crony management from ruining lives on a whim.

    I vote conservative or libertarian. I actually want the company I work for to make a profit, so they can keep paying me. I don't believe in class warfare.

    Why are you assuming all union members are Democrats? Half our membership is made up of Republicans and Conservatives. The higher ups somewhere might be but not all the workers.

    It doesn't determine how you vote, just where your due are sent.

    You assume that all union members are pro gun. You assume that pro gun union members feel the gun issue is more important to them (or should be) than other issues.

    Not blindly. It's no secret which party your money goes. Voluntarily or not.

    You are in the minority then. Look at the map for voting in the last election. Union areas in this country like Northern MN, etc. went to Obama. Pretty good sign that the majority of union members are voting democrat.

    Obama's union members won't speak up to their union bosses.

    Hell, they aren't even man enough to earn an honest living without having to hire mobsters to bribe politicians.

    Real men earn their own raises by merit and guts, they don't hire protection.

    Obama owns them.

    Come on guys, you understood what the OP was asking.
    How about if the line, "to whom this applies to" was inserted? Would that get the question answered?

    I am a conservitive yet I pay dues. I am not a fan of the current administration at all, I campaigned for the "right". I also live in a right to work state. What my dues do is assure me a "fair and safe" place to work in a very hazardous career which I do enjoy. Not all union members are far left. This thread would be like me assuming everyone on here is a far right gun totin fanatic because all everyone does is mostly talk guns. I will also say that about 98% of the so called "liberal" union brothers I work with are avid hunters, firearm enthusiasts. OH and guess what???? I am also an elected union officer.

    No. Pro Unions folks have already shifted fire to standing up for the Union not the consequences directly attributed to the Union's actions or where they spend their money.

    You are financially supporting your opposition and you participate in the process willingly.

    jutland, I guess its fair to say since you assume I am a far left obama fan meerly because I belong to a union, I will assume you are a far right conservitive gun fanatic lost in time clinging to your guns because your on this site, and this is a gun talk forum. oh, and you must be a racist then too.Sound fair?? I dont think so.

    Agree. It's turned into a union member bashing (not hard to do). The question is about will pro 2A union members create a backlash to their socialist union bosses or will they shut up and do what they are told again.
