66. Within the range of our discussion, it is game-playing ...
Repeating my post --

GOPs/NRA supports rightwing interpretations of rights --- such as privacy vs Roe vs Wade ...

States rights conveniently thrown aside when necessary -- as we saw in 2000!

And as we see with various States legalizing Medical Marijuana -- !!

You're missing the point that no matter what you choose to call it, the GOP will

distort it for their own benefit -

"GOPs/NRA is Rightwing -- "

NRA is not right wing. NRA is single-issue regardless of "wing."

NRA has been radicalized by GOP to move government to the right -- it is a political tool --

using "guns" as a front, but simply as a method to rid Congress -- on both sides of the aisle --

of liberals and moderates.

"Guns are the GOP issue -- the rightwing issue -- are you somehow missing that?"

Guns are the GOP issue recently only because some power-hungry, anti-rights, city-based Democrats made it an issue they can grab. They suckered many Democrats nationwide to suddenly believe in the "Bill of Rights Minus One."

We are slowly taking it back. Democrats supporting this right are eradicating it as an issue, and it's why the NRA had to support Democrats the last couple elections.

All of these RW issues gradually lose steam -- that's all that's happened as Americans and

police officers decide they don't want the GOP/NRA "Wild West America."

"City-based Democrats" -- ? Are you in denial of violence in the cities caused by guns?

And that we are all paying the costs for treating the wounded?

The second amendment is simply about a militia -- we all know that.

And all original drafts of the amendment make that clear --

Again, you have but to look at Katrina to see how inane the idea is that anyone -- white or

"black" -- in any emergency will be permitted to have guns.
