    Yes, I believe that, to you, it doesn't even matter what Obama said. It's just that the person saying it has black skin and is a Dem.

    If a conservative purposed the vary same thing, you'd pay it no mind.

    First of all, what does race have to do with this?

    Secondly, you are more wrong than you realize obviously. Next time you have some NRA literature available to you, read it sometime. That will cure any doubts you have of pro-gun support of any politician advocating gun control.

    I'm very aware how little they understand about the 2nd Amendment and relevant SCOTUS decisions.

    Tanks are not weapons. Tanks are vehicles weapons can be mounted in, but anyone with enough money to buy one can own one. That doesn't mean you can have a functioning cannon, 50cal machine gun, 2 saw machine guns (unless you buy a tax-stamp), or grenades (unless you have a demolitions license)...it means you can have the tank and the tank only.

    You can own a black hawk helicopter, also...doesn't mean you can have the twin mini-guns.

    Obviously you arent, because you believe that they would back Palin if she were advocating gun control.

    You would have to explain the 2nd amendment to her before she could comment on it

    I'll agree that she's out of her depth as far as politics are concerned, but she is far from stupid.

    Yes they would. The NRA likes to compromise with 2nd amendment opponents and they have been doing it for decades.

    Yet Again the NRA Sells Out Freedom to the Democrats | RedState
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They must have changed over the years. My father was a huge supporter of the NRA and their literature would attack any politician who advocated gun control.
