    •  I would never vote for a (1+ / 0-)

      republican or a democrat that voted to take away my right to own/purchase rifles I do in fact use most weeks.  I have never committed a crime and am a responsible member of society.  To go after guns that create a tiny fraction of actual gun violence means that politician doesn't really care about gun safety.  They really care about taking away guns.  For many years this hasn't been an issue which was great.  It allowed many of us to focus our attention on other issues we care about.  Going after any of our guns is a deal breaker however.

    •  I will not vote for anyone that suppots (0+ / 0-)

      infringing on the liberties of innocent Americans for percieved security.
      I didn't for warrantless wiretaps & I won't for the AWB.

      That, at worst, means I will abstain.....and I have been a strait-dem voter (except for Nader in 2000), in every election.

      But there are people that will vote GOP.
      The only question is how many.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

        I understand that this is a big issue for you.  One might say you are a single issue voter when it comes to gun ownership.  "Vote to take my guns away, I will vote against you."  Thing is, the only viable party that doesn't want some gun restrictions is... the republicans.  So if this is your issue, then you are in the wrong party.  
        Of course the republicans come with a bunch of smelly baggage, but when it comes to extending gun rights they're your best shot.  As for your other liberties, well, I guess you roll the dice.  The democrats are coming for the ugly guns. Many people are glad they are.
        You could always go back to voting for noted Pro-Gun advocate Ralph Nader (kidding).
