Gentleman, a profound thank you!
Deep breath here...we in the gun culture need a new political consensus that is tied to neither the Republican or Democratic parties. If you support the Second Amendment and are committed to gun rights, it doesn't matter what political party you belong to. While individual Republicans have stood with us, the party as a whole has held us in obvious contempt.
I see that Republican weasel Michael Steele will speak at the NRA Convention...this is the same Michael Steele who spoke out in favor of a new AWB. The first words out of his mouth better be, "Members of the NRA...I am profoundly sorry for my ill-advised comments on laws banning the most popular firearms in America...accordingly, I hereby commit the Republican Party to unconditional support for the Second Amendment and gun rights in America..."
Otherwise, he should join the execs at AIG in seppuka...
