Not for anything people but you do not have to be far right to be PRO gun. I am not anything but dead center politically and I have and have had, since twelve years of age, owned guns. I have had a CCW for over 35 years and carry as often as I legally can in NY State. You do not have to be a Liberal to be anti gun but it seems to help. All I am saying is there are others like myself that hang here that are not Right wingers that enjoy and cherish the right to have and maintain our gun rights. As for this idiot, well, he's and idiot, enough said.
Be safe, Frank.

The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
Beckel was the campaign manager for Walter Mondale's 1984 presidential campaign. Mondale lost 49 of 50 states, getting electoral votes from his home state Minnesota, and Wash DC. 'nuff said.
"A gun is a tool, Marion. No better and no worse than any other tool - an axe, a shovel, or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that." --from "Shane" (Alan Ladd) -1953
Well...i am a redneck & proud of it...one thing that chaps..... my..... hide.... are elitist snobs...but i digress
With respect to crime, punishment, and self-defense, the term "liberal" generally equates to fantasy thoughts about reality, a lack of first-hand experience, and a false sense of security from thinking it always happens to someone else or the police will always be around for protection. On the other hand, the term "conservate" generally equates to one who is in complete touch with reality and simply knows better by personal experience or plain old common sense.
Ever notice that, when reality suddenly pops the bubble of fantasy, you see a lot of liberals suddenly convert to conservatives - but you seldom ever see a conservative convert to a liberal.

I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.
I was born and raised die hard Republican. I carried these views through college. Over time, I have become more moderate. As I have said in other forums, socially I am very libertarian. Economically I lean to the left. The Pro-2A and pro CCW groups would be a lot stronger if they would quit denigrating the left with blanket generalizations.Originally Posted by Eaglebeak
People like Beckel are why I left Maryland and never intend on going back.
