The GOP is fixin' to sell out gun owners

They will vote en masse for "universal background checks".* **

Of course, I called this a year ago:
And so, it is our civic duty to take a hit for our Country.  Put Obama back in office, unfettered.  The orgy of Progressive overreach by Regulation will be sporadically (and mostly ineffectively) resisted by a corrupt Big Government GOP.  The Agencies will rule the land, and the economy will remain seized up.

And rather than a million Tea Partiers taking to the streets, it will be two million, or three.  Rather than five or ten corrupt GOP Establishment crooks turned out of office, it will be thirty, or fifty.

And that will be the time when the calculators like Mitt Romney will get the idea that they will most likely advance their career by striking down the Progressive beast, again and again.

Remember the primaries, folks - those are the elections that count, and the ones you can win.  Remember that the local GOP Establishment has to get elected.  Organize fellow gun owners to throw them out and seize the Party.

Kill all their political careers.  As Voltaire's immortal words from Candide counsel us:
Dans ce pays-ci, il est bon de tuer de temps en temps un amiral pour encourager les autres
"In this country, it is wise to kill an admiral from time to time to encourage the others."

It's the Dread Pirate Roberts school of politics: Good night Wesley. Good work.  Sleep well. I'll most likely kill you in the morning.  As I wrote last year, the GOP is not our friend:
We screwed up, and believed all this, and the government never got smaller under the GOP.  It got bigger, and more intrusive, and more remote from the people, yea even under St. Ron.  Maybe it's too late for us, but if it's not then the only way forward is to burn the GOP to the waterline.  The most expedient way is to keep the Tea Party energized, and a President Romney will cause many to fall away from that movement under the eleventh commandment (another Reagan philosophy).

Well screw that noise.  We f***ed up once, trusting him and the rest of the GOP team.  How's that working out?  Rebuilding a party that Reagan might actually recognize is what this country needs - and right now, damn it - and Mitt Romney isn't the man to do it.

Barack Obama is.
And right now, the GOP is taking its marching orders from him.  The game is afoot, the battle joined anew.  The foeman is not the Democrats - we'll get to them presently.  No, the foeman is the GOP, who thinks they can get ahead by screwing gun owners.  OK, then - let's see how that works in the next primary.

Call your CongressCritters and tell them that we'll see them, and raise them one opponent come next primary.  And then do it.  They're not our friends.  Any of them.

* Which will not be universal, duh.  You don't need to show ID to buy Meth, but you do to buy Sudafed.

** I wonder if I will comply.  Hard to see how this would be enforced effectively.

Eff McCain. He is a Gun banner from way back- No one seems to remember that he was the Spokesman for Andrew McKelvey's (founder of Monster.com) "Americans For Gun Safety", and did gun banning PSAs back in the late 90's that showed before movies in Theaters. He is a gun banning statist.

No surprise that he is pushing for Gun Control- he has been doing it for years.

I seem to remember you advocating for a Barack Obama victory. At the time, I recall saying that an Obama victory will rapidly result in an attack on gun rights, and that any serious gun enthusiast should be quite concerned about an Obama victory.

What's going on now has little to do with the Republicans. And a large percentage of Democrats are opposed as well.

This is all Obama's doing--his anti-gun record is well known in Chicago.

So I'm not sure what the point of your essay here is. You seem to be blaming everybody but forgiving the guy behind it all.

Sorry, BP--this is all Obama's doing. Gun owners were doing well under Reagan, Bush, and Bush. Very bad under Clinton, and now even worse.

If this wasn't your point, you've lost even me on this one. Please explain.

While that might be true for the Senate, the House is entirely different. Your getting a bit hysterical here.
