46. The Democratic Party
is a far stretch from gun-friendly. When you eliminate Schumer, Feinstein, Kerry, and Ted Kennedy, you might have a remotely gun-friendly party. However, when those nuts run around trying to ban guns that pose no threat based on cosmetic features (a la AWB), ban ammunition because it can penetrate body armor (just about every centerfire rifle cartridge out there, common hunting cartridges especially), and ban guns that have never once, to my knowledge, been used in a crime (.50 rifles) because a criminal MIGHT use them, RKBA people will never cozy up to the party. Kerry can run around with a shotgun slung over his shoulder all he wants, but he can't undo 20 years of anti-gun extremism in Congress.

As far as being "gun militants" because we choose to fight for a Constitutional right, I'll take that label as a badge of honor. How can you possibly have a problem with upholding a right to defend oneself without government approval? I have to wonder, do you label people who fight for the right to burn the flag or put "Fuck the Draft" on jackets as free speech militants?
