Well, well. I just got called stupid on my own blog because someone thought that I choose to vote for a candidate because of one issue.
And in a way, I suppose it is true - but I doubt it is the issue that one might think.
In every election I'd like to vote for the candidate who is most willing to seek out and slay those who would do this country harm. I'd like to vote for the candidate least likely to take the money I have earned and give it to those who have not. But above all, I'd like to be able to vote for freedom.
The Second Amendment is only one part of that freedom. It is freedom's last resort, its guarantee.
Perhaps the commenter also does not understand that if you voted for Obama, you voted anti-gun. Your candidate's record on the issue was very clear, despite all the lies his campaign fed to its media. You chose to be anti-gun and, in my mind, anti-gun is anti-freedom. It's that simple. So sure, perhaps there are liberals who like guns...but I highly doubt that you like them for the same reason that I do.
p.s. I was also reminded by this commenter that "partisanship is retarded." Do liberals always resort to childish insults because it's easier than a debate or, you know...actual thought?
p.p.s. And for all of you who think I should still be taking liberals to the range, let me explain further why I will not.
1.) I do not believe that guns, shooting, or the 2nd Amendment will ever convert a liberal into a thinking, rational person. There needs to be a major event, something to force a revelation. I had my own when I saw Muslim terrorists fly airplanes into skyscrapers, killing thousands of Americans on live television. It was reinforced by the despicable behavior of the Left since that time. My love of shooting and my passion for the Second Amendment came long after.
2.) Guns cost money. Ammunition costs money. A membership at the range costs money. Gun cleaning equipment costs money. And, I dare say my time and effort is worth something too.
I work part-time at a public library for a shockingly low hourly rate.
Democrats have voted for those who will steal from us and future generations to pay for their whims.
You do the math.
