Boy, this thread is an eye-opener. If a pro-gun rights forum such as this one is filled with folks who still don't understand that the majority of Dem *leadership* are anti-gun rights and the majority of Rep *leaders* are pro-gun rights -- then there's not much hope that future generations will enjoy the same freedoms that we do.
I've been a registered Independent all my life and have a bone to pick with both parties on at least some issues. And I could care less how anyone votes on this forum -- that's your right as an American -- but at least try to know your enemy.
It's blatantly obvious to anyone that can read as to which political leaders are more supportive of gun rights. Do yourselves a favor and at least read both party planks and conduct minimal research of both parties major beliefs. It's not difficult and you may find you are more (or less) at odds with the party you support than you previously thought. Sheesh.
