  •  Anti-gun extremist (0+ / 0-)

    I have always considered myself a left leaning progressive. The enviorment and holding the corporations accountable and standing up for the middle and lower class have always been important to me. However I do not like all the extreme anti-gun talk lately. If some thugs break into your house at night in all likelyhood the police will not arrive in time to protect you. It is our constitutional right and even our duty to keep and bear arms and I do not see any reason why I should not be able to keep a semi-automatic standard capacity firearm. The last assault weapon ban did not reduce violent crime or mass shootings and there is no reason to believe that it would do so by trying it again.
