    gun rights are one of the few areas where Conservatives still have some momentum, and they push that to the hilt (and beyond) with constant scare tactics and hysteria-whipping of "end times" scenarios. Usually "end times" scenarios that involve Democrats and FEMA concentration camps and UN-mandated arugula consumption.

        once the facade is ripped away --that one must be "conservative" to support such rights-- then another pillar of support will erode away from them.

        One of my turning points came when I realized that 2nd Amendment rights were the only thing I had left in common with the GOP, and I said to myself, "I don't want to be one of those one-issue voters". Absolutely everything else I believed in was more in line with Democrat beliefs... what with me being a working class guy and a non-millionaire.

        So the switch was easy.
