    It could have been worse if they had used a term like "bullet holder thingies".

    BTW Heard Clint Eastwood is the surprise speaker at the RNC Convention tonight. I am looking forward to that.

    I wasn't correcting you, I was correcting Charles Babington of the AP. The Republican statement says "clips or magazines".

    This is a good policy to back in my opinion. It will be a polarizing one though. Few are undecided on this issue as far as I can tell. It may win a few supporters at the poles, but it also may push a few away that would have otherwise voted Republican.....

    Agreed. It's like they're trying to create controversy and stir things up. Probably cost more votes than it gains. Politics isn't about putting all your cards on the table.

    The 2004 GOP platform said "law-abiding citizens" should have the right "to own firearms in their homes for self-defense." This year's platform supports "the fundamental right to self-defense wherever a law-abiding citizen has a legal right to be."
    If the reporter had decided to make the highlighted statement above the headline it might of garnered support from even non-Republicans. But I'm thinking that was not the intent of the article .

    EDIT: Even my most liberal of friends believe that they have a right to defend themselves.

    Ha! "Poles", where do you vote? And what are you voting on?:D

    Sorry couldn't resist. Great policy though! I'd like to read a bit more about it.

    Agreed, that would have been a much better headline.

    Well, M1s use clips, so do Mosin-Nagants...

    I would LOVE to see one of those with a '100 round clip'....

    The 'official ' stance of the Republicans is ; no new gun laws , no laws on guns that will do nothing to stop crime, and no laws that just punish law-abiding citizens.

    I hear a lot of people concerned about Romney's 2A stance. Ryan is strong 2A, and the GOP isn't going to let Romney try to do anything stupid. I don't think he woudl ever even try. The other party however, have a whole different position and view on things. Nothing they propose is going to make any of us 'safer', is going to do anything that will stop murders and violence in the streets. They will try to accomplish it thru regulations and the ATF, because they know they can't get any of it passed if they try thru Congress.

    Mass shootings , such as the one in Aurora, was a posted "gun free zone" .... and the perp knew no one would be able to shoot back. Seems they always pick "gun free areas" ............so they may be crazy, but not stupid ?

    If someone isn't going to vote Republican because of this...they were not going to any way because of the social issues (pro life ect.).

    The status quo of both parties will say anything to get elected.
    The easy way is always mined.

    I remember thinking that President Reagan would never support the Brady Bill. Stuff happens.
