Sometime within the last two months there was an article posted here that had a link to a very well written article by a gun owner who claimed to be liberal. He brought up up some excellent points about how the AWB in 1994 was useless, and why we shouldn't pass another one. I've been searching for 30 min and can't find it. Is anyone familiar with what I'm looking for?

I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
Yes, liberal gun owner. Our founding fathers approved of private ownership of guns, many of them owned guns and most of them considered themselves liberals or what we would now call "classical liberals". The classical liberals, Adam Smith, David Hume, John Locke, Hobbes, Rousseau, etc wrote about and formulated the philosophical foundations of capitalism and the ideas that personal liberty and government by the consent of the governed that are the basis of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. It's not our fault the term has been abused and turned on its head by the big government progressives. Letting them do so is as wrong headed as accepting their definition of what an assault weapon is. We should not give them ownership of either term. If you are a real conservative you are a classical liberal, be proud of it.
Folks that are interested can also Google Why Liberals Should Love The 2nd Amendment & you'll find an interesting and informative article written by a liberal.

The kontraband article is excellent!

I just looked at Kontraband's blog. This guy is a walking advertisement that Pro 2A encompasses the entire political spectrum from the far left (where Kontraband sits) to the far right, where the MSM and the Grabbers would have you think all of us sit.
What never fails to impress me is how many espoused liberals have a "gee I wish I had a gun" epiphany after a perceived life threatening situation. It makes me wonder how many had that very same revelation and didn't live to write about it? It's sort of like that "there are no atheists in a foxhole" thing, doh!
