Region Trumps Party in the Gun Control Debate

The sincerest form of flattery is imitation. But on the web, we can link:

In cruising the RKBA websites, I came across this gem entitled "Don't Blame Liberals for Gun Control" posted on the Portland Independent Media Center site in 2004. It makes some great points, including an "outing" of Republican gun-control advocates like Mitt Romney (Massachusetts), Guiliani (NY), Pataki (NY), Nixon (CA), Ronald Reagan (CA), Bush I (Connecticut), , and others.

Notice where these people are from. In short, gun-control ain't about the party--it's about the part of the country a pol comes from. In Oregon gun control is not favored by a substantial portion of either major party. No thanks, California, but we prefer feeling safe in our homes.

The PIMC post is a couple years old, but still timely and valid. Give it read.
