NRA Life Member Mittens

h/t HuffPo

July 1, 2004; Mitt signs Massachusetts State Assault Weapons Ban
NRA Life Member since 2006, Mitt will be addressing the NRA convention in person today.
I'm sure that he'll be sayin' things the audience wants to hear.

Do ya feel like you've got no other option?
Do ya trust him more than the "other guy"?

The money quote from a Massachusetts resident, Henry Dane, president of the Concord Rod & Gun Club 
"I'm willing to give him a chance on these issues because I think his heart is much closer to being in the right place then the other guy,"

Overall the HuffPo article seems to be written as a COINTELPRO piece written with a smirk, sowing seeds of doubt about the "R" guy. Like ... Where ya gonna go?
Bottomline? I've got no doubts. You can't trust any politician to protect your rights.

Hi Art,

"If a politician isn't perfectly comfortable with the idea of his average constituent, any man, woman, or responsible child, walking into a hardware store and paying cash -- for any rifle, shotgun, handgun, machinegun, anything -- without producing ID or signing one scrap of paper, he isn't your friend no matter what he tells you."

-- L. Neil Smith

Voting is pointless. I wouldn't waste good tar and feathers on any of them.

Tar and Feathers would probably be classified as weapons of a hate crime.

For me, that would be accurate. As a class ... I hate those pols.
