  •  I have to agree with you. (0+ / 0-)

    Two of the people at the meeting i referenced made interesting comments.  one seems to be convinced (sincerely I believe) that if pursued this will result in an urban/rural civil war.  Not sure I agree but understand the depths to which these people believe in it.  And these ar not uneducated hold-up-in-a-Montana-cabin crazy type people.  They are pretty much every day Joes.

    The second guy said something to the effect that his objection is monetary, he claims to have over $50,000 worth of guns and wants to know who is going to compensate him if they take a way his guns.  

    You really have to understand how much many of these people have invested emotionally in the issue.  I have to agree, my fear is if the Dems side push hard on this issue, the GOP will ride it into the congress in 14.
