Join the NRA...it's the only way we're going to keep the obama and the demon-crats from infringing on our rights.

The Second Amendment should have been the First Amendment, because without the Second Amendment, there would be no other rights.

You are right, as well as JPH. I`ll never dispute, or down play the power of prayer, it`s as real as the recoil of my 12 gauge slug gun.
 
But it takes more than simply prayer, it takes activisim and passion and commitment. Those things can grow in a forum like this, and I see nothing the matter with discussing what`s happened, where we`re likely headed, and considering solutions to the problems we`ll soon be facing, even if other than hunting related.
 
Just my opinion.

Dont worry everybody. Now that they have a majority in the house, and senate, and presidency we will lose gun rights. no getting around it..We will also see socialism. And hirer taxes. I then want to see the democrats laugh and tell me how we are better off.. Gas will be 6 bucks a gallon. and why did stocks crash again the savior is here, oh yeah he is anti industry. we are doomed but I surely hope I am wrong..

2008 Election Wrap

With the 2008 elections mostly behind us, we wanted to first thank each and every one of you for your dedication and hard work. We also wanted to let you know where we now stand.
Obama carried the day based on non-gun related issues far beyond our control, particularly concerns with the economy. The overall verdict is that last night was a good night for Democrats. Below, you'll find a more complete analysis of the House and Senate results. A more comprehensive analysis - including state races - will be forwarded upon completion.
These election results will embolden our opponents. They will undoubtedly try to push gun control schemes in the new Congress, but we will work with a strong group of pro-gun Democrats to ensure they stand firm on their pledge to defend our Second Amendment freedom and hunting heritage.
Over the past eight years, our members and our Association have truly changed politics in America. Across the country, from the presidential race, to the U.S. Senate and House, to state legislative races, there was a noted absence this year - ads proudly proclaiming candidates' anti-gun credentials.
The gun control lobby, along with their allies on Capitol Hill and in the media must be distressed that many Democratic gains occurred only because the party has run so far from the gun control issue. While they fondly look back to how actively Bill Clinton campaigned for gun control in 1992 and 1996, they also remember the lesson that gun owners taught an anti-gun Congress in 1994, Al Gore in 2000, and John Kerry in 2004. This was a lesson taught by the National Rifle Association that has changed the politics of our issue across the country.
This year was the next step in the Democratic party's evolution, in which their candidate with a radical anti-gun record spent tens of millions of dollars to paint himself as a supporter of Second Amendment rights. He also spent millions recruiting phony surrogates like the American Hunters and Shooters Association, and making bogus phone calls in which Obama supporters claimed the NRA had endorsed their candidate.
We countered these frauds with the most comprehensive, integrated effort in NRA's history to identify, register, inform, and turn out our voters. But in the end it was hard to cut through voter concerns over the economy.
Today, we begin our work towards the 2010 congressional midterm races. This week, we'll have polling in the field to learn from our members and other gun owners how we can further improve our messaging and we will field test new strategies in the 2009 "off-year" races in several states. We look forward to giving you a full briefing at the winter board meeting, or wherever else our paths may cross before then. In the meantime, thanks for your support through this epic campaign. We now embark on a certain challenge and threats to our freedom. Rest assured, the National Rifle Association is ready, willing and able to fight to defend the Second Amendment.

[font="times new roman"][size=100]GUN CONTROL POLITICS AND THE 2008 FEDERAL ELECTIONS[/font]

[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]Of the 23 candidates for the U.S. Senate endorsed by the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, the NRA-endorsed candidate won in at least 14 of these races, with the outcome still uncertain in Alaska, Georgia, Minnesota and Oregon[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]Potential net loss of at least three Senate seats – Colorado, New Hampshire, New Mexico and North Carolina[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]After the 2006 elections, NRA ratings in the Senate comprised 47 A-rated, four B-rated, six C-rated, twelve D-rated and 32 F-rated[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]In the 111th Congress, NRA ratings in the Senate comprise 41 A-rated, two B-rated, nine C-rated, twelve D-rated and 32 F-rated (with four seats still uncertain)[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]Three pro-gun Senate freshmen include:  Jim Risch (ID), Mike Johanns (NE) and Mark Warner (VA)[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]Of the 248 candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives endorsed by the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, the NRA-endorsed candidate won in at least 216 of these races, with the outcome still uncertain in six races, including CA-4, LA-4, MD-1, OH-15, VA-5 and WA-8[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]After the 2006 elections, NRA ratings in the House comprised 226 A-rated, 28 B-rated, twelve C-rated, thirteen D-rated, 149 F-rated and seven ?-rated[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]In the 111th Congress, NRA rating in the House comprise 222 A-rated, seventeen B-rated, fourteen C-rated, 22 D-rated, 150 F-rated and three ?-rated[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]There were election upgrades in four House seats, including MD-1, MN-3, NJ-7 and OR-5 but setbacks in thirteen House districts including AZ-1, CO-4, FL-8, FL-24, ID-1, MI-7, MI-9, NJ-3, NY-13, NY-25, NY-29, OH-1 and PA-3[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"][/font] 

[font="times new roman"]There were no gun vote changes – for better or worse - in the following 23 Houses districts despite changes in the congressmen (and their party in some cases) representing these districts:  AL-2, AL-5, CA-52, CO-2, CO-6, CT-4, FL-15, FL-16, IL-11, IL-18, KS-2, KY-2, LA-6, ME-1, MO-9, NY-21, NY-26, OH-7, OH-16, PA-5, TN-1, TX-22 and VA-2[/font][/ul]
[font="times new roman"]  

The 26 pro-gun House freshmen (9 Democrats and 17 Republicans) include:  Bobby Bright (AL-2), Parker Griffith (AL-5), Duncan Hunter (CA-52), Mike Coffman (CO-6), Bill Posey (FL-15), Tom Rooney (FL-16), Debbie Halvorson (IL-11), Aaron Schock (IL-18), Brett Guthrie (KY-2), Bill Cassidy (LA-6), Erik Paulsen (MN-3), Gregg Harper (MS-3), Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-9), Martin Heinrich (NM-1), Harry Teague (NM-2), Chris Lee (NY-26), Larry Kissell (NC-8), Steve Austria (OH-7), John Boccieri (OH-16), Kurt Schrader (OR-5), Glenn Thompson (PA-5), Phil Roe (TN-1), Pete Olson (TX-22), Jason Chaffetz (UT-3), Glenn Nye (VA-2) and Cynthia Lummis (WY-AL)[/ul][/font]

[font="times new roman"][/font] 
[font="times new roman"]It is also important to note that many of the C and D rated candidates submitted perfect NRA questionnaires, and despite previous statements and voting records to the contrary, ran as pro-gun candidates.  Of course it remains to be seen whether those in this category who won their races will actually cosponsor pro-gun bills and how they will vote, but it is a factor to consider and we intend to hold their feet to the fire.[/font][/align]

Way to win with class Ranwin. [8|]

I neither won nor lost, but I do believe the country will be better for the choice that was just made and consequently we as the United States, although many don't yet know it, may have won.   
 
For that I'm thankful, and hopeful and happy.

Remember the Clinton Stimulus check? Me neither.. Remember the Clinton so called assault weapons ban? I do. Yes America won if losing freedoms is winning then we won and won big time...and don't think this Democratic house, senate, and Presidency will not take away freedoms..long live France..
