McThag reminds us that our representatives are not neccesarily friends of our Second Amendment rights, just because there's a little red (R) after their name - and in many more cases than not, the (R) holders abuse that belief, and our trust, once they've climbed the ladder to its (visible*) peak of the Presidency. It tends to take the blustery wind out of a customer's lung-powered sails when I, in an attempt to cut short a rant about Them Democrats Banning Our Guns, casually remark "Well, more Federal gun bans passed under Republican presidents than t'other..."
I'm not deluding myself that Democrat presidents are friends to gun owners, but at least the Republicans will fight them tooth and nail on the subject. When it's Our Side doing the abridgment, apparently it's downright justifiable to turn the ratchet tighter. I'm opting out of this particular shell game for Gary Johnson this year, as I'm not in a swing state, and I'm not going to truss or baste myself for either party - again.
*Obviously, the president is a figurehead, a puppet for the Illuminatus.1
1.Yes, I'm kidding.
