43. At least thanks for reading
Thanks for at least taking time to read my post.

You are right that RKBA is today led by right-wingers. I would respond that is because there are no left-wingers who have embraced RKBA and given the bulk of gun-owners an alternative.

I may be wrong, but I believe a gun-friendly democratic party would find new voters in droves, and could also be true to the cause.

Regarding the 2008 election - what you write may be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Because the party won't let a pro-gun candidate through the primaries, by definition there won't be a candidate for the left-leaning RKBA types to embrace. It isn't the RKBA crowd rejecting the candidate, it is the candidate rejecting the RKBA crowd.

It is sad, that is all, just sad.
