As a Christian, I dont think I have the right to force my beliefs on anyone, and I never have. If it comes up and my opinion is asked, Ill give it. But the Constitution gives me the right to practice as I wish, but not to force it on others.
And,. since we've only been talking the 2A here, youve decided its my single issue? LOL Its one of several. But for federal elections, except for House or Senate positions, gun rights havent altered my opinion of who I vote for. Never for POTUS, despite what righties say about D's (They want to take our guns!!!1111). No. They dont.
Oh and because I dont support background checks on private sales somehow I dont support ANY gun control?
Given past Republicans support of blacks in high places, yes.
to name a few.
Plenty of christians do tho, and that's a problem. I wasn't saying you specifically.
So far the only two issues you brought up were 2A and transgenders, which you claimed to not want to discuss. So have at it, you very into the 2A, but what issues do you actually vote for then.
Background checks are very reasonable. What gun control would you like to see you D reps go for, cuz R's won't be doing it.
So voting for a person with life history of racism and pandering to white nationalists is what then? It was pretty obvious when Obama was elected that the right got on the racist crazy train.
As we've already pointed out, the here and now matter.
WRT transgenders, the fact I think they deserve the same anti-discrimination protection as a white, straight, American blue eyed girl enough?
And Ive said repeatedly. I support background checks and mental background checks except for private party sales.
Given that we're still debating the intent of the Second Amendment well over 200 years after it was written suggests that we may need a clearer message on the Federal level.
Are background checks in the 2A?There's not much to debate, as the 2A is pretty clear in it's intent. People's feels when it comes to firearms get in the way tho, and you get a bunch of nutters runnin' around with a bunch of much more efficient killing machines, with anti-anybodyelse mentality.
Yes the people's equality is a voting issue for me
As to the second comment... Slippery slope applies.
My stance on the 2A and gun ownership hasn't changed. Is interesting you haven't asked the one key question that would make you rage on me. Maybe you'll figure it out.It's a rabbit hole because people love their guns and will bounce between being strict verbage believers to interpretive believers whenever it fits their needs. In this case you bounced back to the verbage of the text so I did. If you want to offer that gun owners enroll in a state militia that performs many of the functions that the federal government is doing to put us back to a well regulated militia, I'm down for that

Oh they sure did! And you will not find any posts of mine that suggest I was on that crazy train. The whole birther thing was bullshit, as it is with Harris.
Personally I dont think the birtherism thing is about race so much as it is about not liking her political views. Have you found ANY elected Republicans quoted as saying she cant serve because she's black?
But then, when youre a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Is not complicated. Having background checks for new gun purchases protects the fed firearm dealer. However, adding a check for private sales will prevent zero criminals from getting a gun. It simply places undue burden on responsible gun owners, which I'm against.Not interested in trolling, you don't offer much information tho. Most of your replies are just simple statements. On one hand, you agree with background checks, but then you don't, with little explanation as to why. Then,.even tho, you professed to support background checks, pivot to ask if background checks are in the 2A text. Your stance,.fwiw,.is whatever you want it to be at that moment.
