I have said for years...nothing turns a card carrying liberal into a gun toting liberal like a mouthful of their own blood. The transformation happens as they lay bleeding in the gutter and realize no one is going to help them, wondering if they will survive.

Guys, leave ole Chain alone here. He may be a liberal, but hes a gun toting liberal. Its one of the great things about this country...there are MANY "social engineers" out there that know the truth and are staunch defenders of the 2A.
A little story:
As news of this tragedy was just breaking, i was listening to the local rock station and one of the Dj's came on and started jabbering about it. I grabbed my phone and was ready to dial, was prepared to jump thru the truck radio and strangle the idiot. See, i know this guy is a card carrying liberal.
He said, and i quote, "As most of you know, i am liberal, and proud of it. I voted for Obama, and proud of it. But those of you that are going to start yammering for more gun control and the repeal of the 2A....STOP IT!! Its STUPID! I am a responsible gun owner because i KNOW that the ONLY way to protect my children from madmen hell bent to destroy me, my wife and my children is with a gun! PERIOD....so STOP IT!!"
People like "Turner" at The BEAR and my friend Chainfire here at FTF give me some small glimmer of hope. As polar opposite as our politics are...we DO have common ground in our support for the 2A. I am SURE there are MILLIONS more like them in this country.
