    Question POLL: Do your state/fed representatives fight for the Second Amendment?

    Question: What is the degree to which your state and federal elected representatives fight for or against the Second Amendment and your right to keep and bear arms?

    We've all got multiple representatives that have been elected, at the local, state and federal level. And it's the rare person that has representatives that are either all in one camp or the other, fighting equally hard (for or against). So, consider the question to mean this: on average, how would you rate your reps' overall fight for the 2A (considering all of the reps you have).

    My Congressman is a big gun rights guy. My Senators, not so much. So not sure how to answer the poll.

    Same with the state level my delegate even shot someone trying to rob his pharmacy once, but my state senator is VERY anti-2nd Amendment.

    Contrary to her public statements Claire McCaskill is clearly not a supporter of the Second Amendment. She is willing to pass legislation which directly infringes on our right to keep and bear arms.

    I have representatives in name only; Alcee Hastings- empeached and removed from the bench. Obama lackey and anti 2nd Amendment. Bill Nelson- A "0" need I say more. Patrick Murphy- just another newly elected democrap and has been looking for the bathroom since November but with self professed claims of future greatness. IMO, after he finds the bathroom he will continue to be just another Obama lackey.

    Just the typical "one answer fits all gun related questions". The 2nd Amendment was not intended to preserve our hunting heritage unless she means hunting those that pervert the Constitution.

    Can't vote in this poll...

    there is no uniformity across my "state/fed representative."
    My State Delegate fights extremely hard for the RKBA in all its forms -- and is on a very key sub-committee

    My State Senator votes OK on most 2A issues, with glaring exceptions.
    Of the three at the national level, one seem to get most of it, but not fighting for it, IMHO. OTOH the other two are (or maybe wolves) posing as shepherds.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    I live in NOVA and my Fed. Representative is a communist and my senators are in the middle. I believe one is an anti & the other is better than average, but will probable bow to his party vs the people.

    My state rep is a Rhino and an active anti. The rest of the legislature is mixed. Currently we have our heads above water, but who knows for how long. Veep Blindox & other socialist are coming to Richmond this week to make a big gun control push.

    I live in Swinestein territory and vote against "it" every chance I get.

    My city, and some county officials are notably pro 2A (County Sheriff thank the Lord is one of em)
