@Al Norris; I appreciate the "Cut the party ranting" comment, as its just that. I am a lifetime Democrat, and a serious life-long gun-guy. I know and have worked with untold numbers of Republicans who are just as anti-gun as any of the big DEM names you can throw out there.
Stick with the issue rather than FOX News talking points.....attack the issue, not an entire voting block (how smart is that?). Believe me, I work it behind the scenes with my fellow Democrats, but do get frustrated when I see such comments from "supposed" gun advocates.
Republicans are not alone in this fight.
