YOU are a frightening person...........
Everything from your view of this Administration, to your false belief that our Second Amendmet rights are safe no matter what, to YOUR prioritys.
So sorry that the war in Iraq doesn`t suit you, perhaps more devastation on U. S. soil suits you better.........
And as to your worries about what the rest of the world thinks of this Country, President said it best when the world, more specifically, France and Germany who were in bed with Iraq, were critical of us for invading, "We don`t need the worlds approval to protect America and American interests,"
I`d love to know how you can say that our Second Amendment rights will never be taken away. Until the recent Supreme Court Decision, it WAS taken away for law-abiding gun owners in Washington DC. Just as it`s gone for law-abiding gun owners in Chicago, which has a total ban on handguns. What news are you watching? What news are you reading?
What about the Klinton, so called, Assault Weapons Ban, which banned certain semi-auto weapons based purely on cosmetic appearance? Wasn`t that a loss of Second Amendment rights?
I too care for our environment, but when this economy, which is being drained by OPEC and big oil, is going down the tubes, we need to drill for domestic energy whenever, wherever we can. It`s pretty simple really.
For me, anyone who poo poo`s the very real threats we face every day, to our Second Amend rights, is as much a threat as those who wish to take those rights away. Whether your intent is to purposly mock what we risk losing, or whether you really just don`t get it, you`re certainly not an ally in the constant, and serious fight to keep our birthright.

If you think the Bill of Rights is a bunch of Privledges assigned by the Government, you are already lost to the left. No use arguing it anymore. I can cite documented proof from HUNDREDS of sources that would overload the server here, that will prove to you it is indeed natural law and that paramount to natural is the law of self preservation.
A difference of opinion and out comes the name calling.
There are so many things wrong with these statements I can't help but shake may head and wonder what have we come to in America.
Just FYI - everything I've ever read about God, he never mentioned Assault Weapons - but having them is our God given right?? What logic! Nothing to do with the second amendment, and bush himself said he would have signed the bill if it got back through congress so don't blame it on Clinton.
Any rights to open up drilling today won't see results for at least 10 years and will do nothing to lower gas prices and assist us at this time. It will continue to line the pockets of oil companies and be disruptive to our environment. Have you forgotten about the huge Chevron discovery in the Gulf of Mexico in 2006. It should increase US oil reserves by nearly half, yet hasn't helped gas prices at all. We'd be better off spending those next 10 years developing new and sustainable energy resources and eliminating the need for oil. Here's a book, read it: http://www.amazon.com/Earth-Sequel-Reinvent-Energy-Warming/dp/0393066908/ref=pd_bbs_6?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1215116032&sr=8-6 It provides much better alternatives then drilling for oil or mining coal. If we're going to get stuck with high gas prices, let's do something to fix the problem, not continue it.
Documented proof, get real. Documented proof would be a video of God saying these are God given rights. Anything else is guesswork, unless you like bush have personal talks with God as well. But go ahead and point me to the resource that cites God saying we have the right to keep and bear arms, or any of the other parts to the Bill of Rights. You have hundreds, it shouldn't be hard.
It's been fun and as much as I enjoy a good philosophical discussion, I've got to be done - I suppose the next four years will determine who has the better judgement. Let's hope whatever the future brings it's better than what we have now.
Best of luck with your hunting this year.
