WE lost enough freedoms lets not lose this too
As the GOP claims "great" victories in states like Massachusetts and Virginia, gun owners should be hesitant to jump on the GOP bandwagon.
On Tuesday evening, GOP pundits were championing Congressman Mark Kirk's victory in the Illinois Republican U.S. Senate primary. Many of those same talking heads are enthusiastically trumpeting Representative Kirk's chances to win the Senate seat formerly occupied by President Barack Obama.
Is this Republican success reason for gun owners to be optimistic? Hardly.
Congressman Kirk has long been an enemy of gun owners, supporting legislation to close the so-called "gun-show loop-h***", ban certain types of semi-automatic rifles and require background checks to purchase ammunition.
Kirk is not the only anti-gun Republican looking for a promotion. His gun-hating compadre Congressman Mike Castle of Delaware is preparing to make a run for the Senate as well.
What does this mean for gun owners?
We cannot allow ourselves to be sucked into the hallow victories being celebrated by the Republican Party. Gun owners must be able to discern between the pro-liberty, pro-gun candidates and the anti-gun wolves hiding in Republican clothing.
