Response to fightthegoodfightnow (Reply #76)

79. No. YOU are wrong.

"You are the one bartering rights as if I have to accept your interpretation of one right before I get another. That's not a 'choice' as you claim. That's tyranny."

I'm not bartering ANYTHING.

I'm speaking of the situation AS IT HAPPENED. That situation was NOT MY DOING. I had NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH IT. Not in any way shape size or form.

The situation AS IT HAPPENED, was that a bill was introduced to grant voting rights to the citizenry to DC. Thats a fact.

Pro-gun language was added to the bill by a DEMOCRAT. Thats also a fact.

The CHOICE was made for the bill to be shelved, BECAUSE OF THE PRO GUN LANGUAGE it contained. Again, fact.

Unless I misunderstood, you support the choice to shelve that bill, the doing of which denied the granting of voting rights to DC, because of the pro-gun language it contained.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong about that.

You either agree with that choice or you don't.

Which is it?


"Play with your guns all you want but stop playing games with the voting rights of DC citizens."

I play these games? I had nothing to do with it. Another fact.


"You play these games from the gun lobby and the right plays these games with abortion and prayer in schools passing laws that apply just to this city by politicians we never elected or whose assembly we do not sit in. You think the gun lobby is the first to dangle a carrot in front of us? Not even close. And everytime we bite, the carrot gets pulled. 'If you ban abortion, we'll give you representation.' Not. This has been going for decades."

Again, with accusing ME of playing games? And, I remind you, a Democrat added pro gun language to the bill.

And it was the DC delegate that "pulled the carrot". Not the gun lobby. Do you agree with the choice to pull the carrot or don't you?

"It's all a game to folks like you to push your political agenda (right or left) on us without our consent or participation."

I'm not pushing MY political agenda on you. Nobody will ever force you to own or posess a gun.


"From my perspective, characterizing yourself a champion of (gun) rights is truly dispicable."


Somehow, I think that would be true despite the voting rights status of DC.
