  •  so, how about that? They're kinda like a union (5+ / 0-)

    they stick together and stand up for what they believe is important, and they hold out for the rights of the individual as guaranteed in the Constitution.

    How much more illiberal can they be?

     Of course there's a call to ban them!

    Why, they don't swallow the "guns = evil" koolaid.

    They actually, you know, own and operate firearms. Legally. They even advocate that other people ought to be allowed to do so, and offer to help people who want to know more about firearms.

    •  The problem isn't with their position wrt guns (0+ / 0-)

      ...as misguided as that might be.

      It's how they bully and game the system and gang up on people espousing a contrary opinion.

      And yes, such behavior in my opinion is illiberal.  Rather, it has much in common with what the incipient tea baggers did during Congressional town hall meetings in 2009: shout down those with whom you disagree. Perhaps you find that acceptable.  I don't.

      It's offensive. It's no wonder why some of the more prominent RKBAers are viewed so poorly. Many kossacks simply refuse to interact with them because of their aggressive and offensive tactics.
