    Sure, they may own a gun, but they probably bought a "Saturday Night Special" JUST so they could say "Hey, I'm a gun owner like you!"

    He is just trying to look like he is a "know it all" to the uninformed voter. They will think since he goes shooting with his shot gun he knows what is best for us.

    See the connection.

    You just can't trust those guys with shotguns who go bird hunting. They are a dangerous lot.
    Lucky for us Chaney didn't shoot Scalia also!

    Here is a picture of Obama leaving the Camp David Skeet Shooting Range. That person just behind him is Manti Te'o's girlfriend......

    I've watched quite a few liberal folks or dare I say it, DEMS, driven from this
    board over the last 5-6 years.

    IMO, take the conservative cheer leading over to Conservative Stronghold
    and keep this about 2A; which so far, has not been infringed by any elected current

    Duh, Scalia IMO is not on the side of concealed carriers or those who want to retain
    high caps. He is indeed a conservative Justice, but I don't think any of them hold the

    We'll see after the next couple of cases.

    Wow. I wasn't even thinking of you. Take it as you wish. I don't think anyone here doesn't know where you stand....you are just NOT that important to me to address this humorous sign to you. I was actually thinking of my idiot ex husband....the hippie/retired firefighter/hippie again. Is that YOU, Dan???

    BTY Hoppy old man, I do go to the Conservative Stronghold...just not much traffic there. I guess Conservatives KNOW how things are and don't need the support, venom and hysterical hate that the Democratic Underground has. Don't remember seeing you at the Conservatives Stronghold.....do you use the same name? Or do you haunt the Democratic Underground.

    Not been infringed?! Perhaps not ... not in the past 10 minutes anyway. But, it's not for lack of trying on the part of a great many current office holders and they are only the latest in a long line of politicians who have diminished the Second Amendment. How much more compromise and curtailment of liberty is it going to take before the "office holders" and their supporters are satisfied?

    I've watched quite a few liberal folks or dare I say it, DEMS, driven from this
    board over the last 5-6 years.


    Actually they did the driving for the most part because I would guess that probably 80% of the Lib Left that was ever removed from this board are now gone because they lost control of themselves to a Moderator in private mail.
    That is the quickest way to buy a ticket to anywhere else but here.
    Which is something that you have never done - which is why you are still here and able to talk about them being gone.


    From The Forum Rules Page.
    Should you ever have any issues with anything forum related please feel free to send a Private Message to any of our forum Moderators. We do understand that some topics are very "HOT BUTTON" issues and/or you may perceive some Moderator action to be unfair. That is fine and please do feel free to discuss your issue with any Moderator VIA Private Mail in a civil and respectful manner. Your complaint will then usually go for review by multiple Moderators who will "weigh in" on the disputed decision.
    Please Note: Losing your temper, ranting, name calling, sarcastic tone and general disrespect in a Private Mail Message to a Moderator or Administrator will get you removed from the forum.
    Consider yourself to be warned of this in advance. It is excellent practice for you to know how to make your point like a decent, calm, rational, human being should you ever find yourself in a court of law ~ at some future point in time.
