54. I'm a Republican...
...and in keeping with the spirit of your forum rules, this will likely be my only post. Be gentle! :P

This is without a doubt, one of the best pro gun pieces I've ever read in a forum. I signed up for no other reason than to thank you for your insight and superb writing. I couldn't have crafted a post any finer myself.

As a Republican, your article gives me pause. You have clearly shown that if your party dropped it's anti-gun stance, my party would stand a very good chance of loosing the House, Senate and Presidency. Honestly, it hadn't occurred to me that it might be that simple. Since I don't generally share the values of this site's membership, I won't discuss this revelation or it's implications any further, except to say that I'm a little worried now.

If you were in Ohio, I'd take you shooting and buy you a beer. With all this talk of building bridges and reaching out to the other side, you are one of the few that have done so successfully. We Republicans should endeavor to do the same, once in a while.

And with that, I'll gracefully bow out....
