Gun rights are an individual right, a human right.
And in order to better defend those rights, individuals will form groups. Unfortunately, the gathering of any number of people for any known cause whatsoever will always result in the dreaded, and yet essential, political maneuverings. People sort themselves out, voice their opinions, choose a leader - it's human nature. Sometimes this goes well, and sometimes...not, as my friend Gay Cynic shows us with the recent kerfuffle going on with the Washington Arms Collectors. A great example of how individual politics can affect the whole, it seems the WAC is due for a changing of the guard.
So, if you're a Washington resident, join the WAC, and remember...a vote for Gottlieb is a vote for sanity. (yes, that Gottlieb.)
