NRA and this Election

I got an email this afternoon from Stephanie at the NRA, who I had the pleasure of meeting at GBR.  The NRA has created two ads geared towards this election, specifically in-light of recent statements made by Obama during the debate as well as on his website.

This is serious folks and the fact that Heller hinged on one vote in the Supreme Court is serious.  That man wants nothing more than to disarm the American public at this point.  Many look at Romney and say he’s a gun banner just the same as Obama.  Except when you start really digging past the myths to the truth, that’s not entirely true.

Roberta was right, we are not going to reverse the slope.  We can slow it down though, and even more than that, we need to protect the tools necessary to survive when the time comes we finally discover the edge of the fiscal cliff, more specifically the bottom.

The bottom line is we must protect our natural rights from any who would assault them. Think long and hard before you vote this year.  I am one who always wants to vote what I feel is right, however sometimes you must make a tactical decision to cede ground in one place to take ground in another.

    The real trick is that Obama might get to replace one of the justices that we’re worried about if he wins, but Romney will get to replace one.*

    I’ll take my chances that all of the ones we’re worried about survive another four years. Even if they don’t I’m willing to bet that an Obama pick with a hostile Congress is still going to be better than a Romney pick with a rubber-stamp Congress.

    * The Justices seem to have developed a ‘thing’ about maintaining the con/lib balance, so that cons try to take their retirement during Republican administrations and libs aim for Democrat administrations. For the same reason we’re worried about these justices in the first place, I’m 99% convinced that at least one will retire if Romney wins, but I also figure that they’ll probably come back as zombies and shamble their corpses up to the bench just to prevent Obama from getting to pick their replacement.

      I’m not sure congress is really going to be any less hostile since the Senate isn’t a sure thing.

      There is a reason we’re worried, because !@#$ happens and the courts are proving to be the battle ground. I don’t want a rubber stamp approval but it seems that congress overall, even when the parties differ between the executive and legislative branches doesn’t seem to think they need to do their job anymore.

      No mainstream politician really wants to touch gun control. The way around that is to put judges in that aren’t subject to the wrath of the American voter. No matte how you cut it, the current situation is a big bag of suck and fail. I’d just rather that we be sitting in a good position in case Murphy shows up to say “F you”.
