I have to agree with Bitter here that it’s a really bad idea for the gun rights movement to tie their fortunes to the Republican Party. If recent history is any indication, that ship, if not actively sinking, definitely has more than a few holes in the hull. The Republicans might be out in the political wilderness for a while. I liked the Republicans more as a minority party than a majority party, and I hope that they will find their mojo again and start standing for things people actually want to vote for.
Until then, we have to find a way to work with Democrats, or our gun rights are doomed. This isn’t the time to be snubbing pro-gun Democrats like Bill Richardson.
