"gun loving liberals" usually think only bolt, lever, or single shot guns should be legal. Semi's are evil.

one guy that I know said that you dont need assualt rifles anyway

My FIL does

I do.

On a whole, I agree with the democrat's progressive social stance, and agree with republican's beliefs concerning "liberal" economics, conservative fiscal/monetary policy, and the open market.

I also support the NRA and other pro firearms groups. I think that the democratic party has learned that supporting idiot soccer moms costs them votes. Seeing as to how firearms are much more protected these days than before, I don't see why voting democratic is a big issue. I also judge each candidate as a whole... there is more to politics than gun control. Much like how you guys seem to hate McCain, even though he's a republican, I prefer democrats who don't buy into the Brady campaign BS.

It's kind of like... calculating expected utility in your mind. If guns are safe for now, why would I vote for a republican whose stance on social issues I don't agree with? If 2nd ammendment rights were under attack, then i'd temporarily abandon my proggressive social stance and vote to protect them. If a democratic candidate ran with banning guns being a big part of his rhetoric I wouldn't vote for him/her.

Progressive social stance, huh? Does that include taxing the shit out of anything that moves to pay for socialist welfare programs?

As long as they give me fair market value, I could do some upgrading.

Let's see:
Ass pirates and carpet munchers adopting kids.

Crack hos getting free .gov needles.

Abortion (murder) on demand, don't forget underage girls not needing parental consent or notification.

To those according to their needs, from those according to their means.

What else did I forget?

Depends upon your definition of a "liberal."

There is no such thing as a Commie/Pinko/Socialist liberal who likes guns.

Critical thinking exercise:

Republicans are the party of the rich
Democrats are the party of the poor and oppressed

In order to maintain power a party must expand it's base by including more people.

Therefore the republicans must make more people rich, and the democrats must make more people poor and oppressed.

libs are focused on unions more then guns.
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 4:42:30 PM EDT
Anyone here familiar with the FAL Files knows a few members there more left than Hugo Chavez and they own many guns, inluding EBR's, and actively support the radical elements of their party such as palozi, Robert Earl, et al.
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 6:17:05 PM EDT
For now, I vote for the pro-gun candidate, unless the liberal candidate seems particularly sensible and the conservative one particularly daft.

NTM
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 6:19:39 PM EDT
They truly believe their candidates wont go that far. They also support what they call "reasonable" gun control.
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 6:27:02 PM EDT
I'm going to say yes.

It's part of the paradox that is being "liberal"

My dad is a lib, he has given me guns for my b-day and Christmas (which is not illegal in my state), hell he even gave me a CETME as a Christmas present last year. He believes that IF YOU ARE A LAW ABIDING citizen you should be allowed to own firearms of any type. Guess what< he works for the Washington Post!

No, only Black Semi-Autos are evil.

Pink semi-autos are soft and cuddly.

Your dad is ONE of a kind then. I've NEVER talked to a liberal that thought anything good about guns that could fire more than one round a minute

So do you vote for candidates that will take your 2nd amendment rights away?
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 11:23:58 AM EDT
I've met the rare black rifle or handgun owning "progressive". The ones I've met are urban,and very authoritarian so far as it affects implementation of their socialist agenda. They believe that they should be allowed to own guns, but that most other gun owners are idiots. It's a position of extreme condescension from what I've seen. Far more common are the liberal hunter types who don't like handguns, black rifles, or some other variety of guns- so called 2nd amendment "moderates".

Link Posted: 12/20/2005 11:44:17 AM EDT
No different than gun lovers blindly voting republican because they generally support gun rights, even thought they might put the boot on other things...

I don't care what their other stances are, only people that get my vote are pro RKBA people.
