It was right after Sandy Hook when I bought my first serious gun (having owned just .22's in the past) and a few months later securing my CC license. I should disclose at this point that I have been a moderate Democrat most of my life mainly from the social issues side and for my general distaste for war. Since then I've engaged in many heated and deep arguments with my republican friends and the fine people here at DC, and seeing Obama's increasingly sickening assault at our liberties and the further affirmation of his push for a more socialistic society, I've decided to change my affiliation to Republican, at least for the next few election cycles. I will also be sending in my first installment payment for a lifetime membership to the NRA. Obama and my former party just lost a vote. Lets turn this ship around. Beginning with our votes next year.
