What ???
Then why was the subject of gay marriage even brought up? How anyone feels on that subject to me is not relevant to the firearms rights debate. If anyone wanted to make a parallel point in the discussion, why didn't they mention Cerberus Capital's divestment in Freedom Group after the Newtown shootings.... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/18/cerberus-capital-freedom-group-gun-manufacturer_n_2321258.html ....because the father of Cerberus chief executive Stephen Feinberg lives in Newtown ????

After attending a couple of (supposedly) pro-gun rights rallies here locally and seeing signs held up with subjects from impeachment, taxes, abortion, gay rights, God (someone was even holding up the 10 commandments) that have nothing to do with the subject at hand... I can predict that anyone who has sympathy for our cause, but disagrees on those issues will not support us and start to believe how the media at large wants to paint us all.. A bunch of bigoted, gun crazy, narrow minded yahoos. .... and then we will lose the debate. Staying unfocused, divided and uninviting to others will cause the death of the pro-gun movement.

The subject was brought up to illustrate that the politicians have no convictions of serving their constituents. They support whatever legislation is convenient for their personal priorities. The "gay" part of it is irrelevant except that that was the specific example of the politician being a turncoat for his own convenience. This forum has too much of people looking for excuses to put others down. If anything will defeat its purpose, that will.

Okay then.. I'll repeat ... How anyone feels on that subject to me is not relevant to the firearms rights debate. ... and to call someone a "turncoat" because they open their heart up to tolerance and love and reject prejudice and hate upon reflection and start to admit that they might have been wrong is a non-defensible position IMHO also. If you bother reading my previous posts on the resent 2A rallies I've attended you'll see I'm not the one picking fights either... but rather I'm standing up for my fellow gun owners who happen to be gay, lesbian, black, Asian, Latino and every other creed, race lifestyle and culture that we now call the United States. I will not apologize OR back down from that ever. Believe it or not.. they are just as concerned about loosing gun rights as we are.

That's my final word at this campfire... I'm moving on.

I'm trying to stay focused on the gun issue and all of a sudden this gay stuff pops up. No pun intended. First of all an anus is an exit and not an entrance, so lets really end this subject on this forum and leave gay gun rights to MSNBC.

Here's what he was doing. he was compaing the situations. The Senator changed his views on gay marriage after his son turned out to be gay, just like Kelly and Giffords changed their views on guns after Giffords was shot.
They both changed their views based on their own PERSONAL experiences. Regardless of what their constituants wanted, they are trying to make laws based on their personal opinions.
He was NOT saying anything (good or bad) about gay marriage. He was talking about the SITUATION, and how it was was simular to the situation with Kelly and Gifford.

Again,
I really feel sorry for Gabby.
Terrible thing that happened.
And,
I would like to have a one on one talk with the husband
to find out for sure,
what he was doing.
