I'm tired of all the chatter about gun bans; wish none of this ever happened. But I'm not too tired to fight for my rights. I'm up for the battle - as long as it takes.

I can absolutely guaranty everyone one thing: For the next several election cycles, I will be a single issue voter: Gun-Owner Rights. Immigration, Debt, medicare, SS, healthcare, jobs, economy, abortion, etc. - none of that matters to me. I am officially a one-issue voter. And, I'll be watching and taking names.

Magnum Mike:
The problem is the misleading politicians and media.
Exactly. Listen to MM. The media is like Tokyo Rose, broadcasting each and every day how badly it's going for the pro second amendment supporters. The politicians are like the Japanese propagandists doing the same thing to our POW's when captured. We all know who ended up on the losing side. Remember Bill Murray's character in Stripes when they had to motivate themselves to complete their own training? He said something about "We're mongrols. We're misfits. Our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. But we're Americans!"
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Samuel Adams.

I found it easy to ignore (and keep my BP from zooming too high) by simply going shooting. Shot a tourney on Sunday, practice Tuesday and Wednesday, another tourney this Sat and Sun - with reloading in between and good games on the soccer channel, I haven't watched the news for several weeks. Keeps me from throwing things at the TV....... (but I am SERIOUSLY looking at places outside the US to move to for retirement)

I generally ignore the MSM, atleast the drivel on the idiot box, but I am starting to find the seeping of the gun debate, and the accompanying ignorance, into other facets of the internet disturbing.

In all honesty, it is getting to where my online time is spent either looking at used books on amazon or hanging out here,

Oh for crying out loud, exhausted? Over this. Good lord I am not exhausted, I am motivated to keep our rights under the 2nd Amendment.
