2. Fuck the NRA.
What do they have, like 2 million members? I could never figure out why 3 million liberals don't get together and join just to change the organization.

10. I love to do that. Someone put me on the Rape-Publican mailing list years ago.
So they waste their money mailing to me, and then I waste more of it mailing their shit back.

9. And they refused to send you the "free" offer? Bummer.
I have a feeling that this was not legal. So tell us, did they actually notify you that you were not getting the pocket knife because of your answers?

12. Thankfully, sensible people
Including 80% of DU, don't agree with you.

"5) Using your tax dollars, the UN seeks to impose international gun control affecting you and other American citizens. Do you think this is a good use of your tax dollasrs?

Yes."

That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen posted here.

27. Here are a couple more.


http://www.pollingreport.com/guns.htm



Pew Research Center. March 10-14, 2010. N=1,500 adults nationwide. MoE 3.
"Thinking about gun laws: Do you think state and local governments should or should not be able to pass laws that ban the possession or sale of handguns in their jurisdictions?"

Should Should Not Unsure
% % %
3/10-14/10 45 50 5

CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll. June 4-5, 2008. N=1,035 adults nationwide. MoE 3.
"Preventing all Americans from owning guns"
Agree Disagree
6/4-5/08 13 87

Pew Research Center for the People & the Press survey conducted by Abt SRBI. April 23-27, 2008. N=1,502 adults nationwide. MoE 3. April 2007 & earlier conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International.

"Would you favor or oppose a law that banned the sale of handguns?"
Favor Oppose Unsure
% % %
4/23-27/08 36 59 5
4/23-27/08 36 59 5
4/18-22/07 37 55 8

09/99 46 50 4
05/99 44 50 6
12/93 45 51 4


Yup pretty much what one would expect a large and growing super majority support individual ownership of handguns. DU is no different.

25. Do you oppose all enumerated rights our Constitution requires government to protect or do you pick
and choose those that fit your non-democratic agenda?

Hope someday you will change your position and support the Democratic Party which says "We recognize that the right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans Second Amendment right to own and use firearms."

32. Just look at his posts
His take on the Second is pretty clear. It guarantees his right to a fancy shotgun to shoot trap at the club once a month and fuck everybody else.

Anyone says different is an NRA stooge and pro-gun Democrats are all fakes.

30. The NRA promised me a cheap pocket knife if I renewed my membership ...
years ago.

Never did get it.

I was a little disappointed as I usually get a stupid hat and the knife sounded better.

38. Don't be so mean, he thought it would make him look cool in GD.
I did notice that he took off as soon as he realized he was getting serious questions.

After all, everyone knows, "Real Progressives" all hate the NRA blindly and with a white hot passion.

At least that's what the latest round of self appointed "Progressive Police" keep telling me. The fact that they give 10 times the campaign money that Brady and gun control give Dems, and they are recommending Dems more than ever in the last election cycle doesn't count for shit because their heart isn't pure enough.
