That was very interesting. Since we live so close to the KS line this is more than just interesting.

By the way.........I love your avatar. Curlers in ladies' hair outside of their house is a pet peeve of mine.

Ladies hair curlers in MY bathroon is a pet peeve of mine especially when she has HER own damn bathroom. ;)

I told this to a friend on the phone earlier this evening. His commnet, "about time the rest of the country caught up with Louisiana"! I said, 'what are you talking about"? His reply, "we've always had open carry when walking, but you have to keep the lid on it when driving"!

Back to the Wild West. Personally I do not believe that the in your face approach is helpful the the gun rights cause.

Buzz, I am of the belief that their is no approach that is going to appease the anti crowd. I hunted for years right outside of Brookings, no one thinks twice when someone walks through the lobby of a hotel with a shotgun or has one hanging in the window of a pick-up. I think in general people who see guns on a daily basis are more prone the realize they are not evil, even if those people are non hunters. It sounds like this is a "screw you" type of move, but really I don't see of it having a negative effect.

:-) I have a dear friend whoes parents were from LA. And although I have never spent any time in your state if you people are all like her you are a hoot ( as she puts it when talking about her family down there ). She lives in OK full time anymore. She keeps me laughing.

Good Post. Mostly what I think also.

We live where guns are a normal part of living. We still have to fight some of nature's critters to keep our animals alive.

About 5 miles from us is a casino. A man leaving there with ( I presume ) some money he had won was beaten to death just a few miles from the casino. Up the road about a quarter of a mile from us is a bar
where some things get rough at times ( no law for about 13 miles so people do what they please at times ).
We have had a drunk knock on our door late at night wanting someone to drive him to another location.
We have some rather strange people wandering around out here at times. We keep a loaded gun handy
and so do other people in this area. Just makes good sense to most of us around here. Someone dumped a dog out here who was acting strange and slobbering so I called the sheriff's office (since shooting animals seems to be a "no-no" according to the come lately people out here ). His answer to my problem.....he said "shoot it". His thinking has not been tainted by the late comers to this part of the country. Most people around here used to always carry a gun in their pick-up with them as they went about tending cattle or oil leases. And if anyone thinks that I will quit shooting those critters who have killed my chickens in the past they better think again.

A ridiculus exageration.

When Obama says turn in your guns, Buzz will proudly be at the front of the line!!!:cool:

If we sit back and calmly allow our beliefs to be slowly torn down we'll look around in 10 yrs and ask what happened, I remember when we could own guns. Just look at the removal of Christianity from our society. Do you really think a ban on semi auto assault weapons is all they want. Give an inch and they've taken the country.

The same group that wants to go after your gun rights is the same group that wants to put an end to hunting! Only ONE poilitcal party has taken a stand for gun rights!

Yes I have, have you?
It involves no legislation.
Just pushing small towns to obey existing state law.

I believe my question was "what legislation have they authored or passed so far?"

The answer of course would be NONE!!!

Live in denial all you want along with Huntingman. The Libertarian Party has spoken for Gun Rights as a party since Sandy Hook. What is the official responce on Gun Control since Sandy Hook from the Republican Party? Here's a hint; their lips are sealed!

Here we have a political party standing up for Gun Rights and making states obey their laws and you are going to berate them. That's about par for your course!

I asked a question, that is berating them??
Oh wait, the answer does not suit your zealotry.........

Here in WI we have open carry and CC.
CC was passed by Walker and our Republican legislature.

Open carry already existed in KS.
(read your article)
And that has nothing to do with Sandy Hook.

I ask again, what legislation have the Libertarians authored or passed so far???

Oh wait, the answer does not suit your zealotry.........The is the biggest attack on Gun Rights in the last 19 years and the Republican Party, as a Party is mum on the subject. All legislation proposed by Libertarians is shot down by both Parties. It is their way of keeping the two Party monopoly. That won't last too much longer!

Here in WI we have open carry and CC.
CC was passed by Walker and our Republican house.

Open carry already existed in KS. But the cities were over-riding the state laws. So, the Libertarians challenged it and won.
(read your article)
And that has nothing to do with Sandy Hook. It has everything to do with Sandy Hook. In case you've missed it, Gun Rights are under attack because of Sandy Hook and other acts by lunitics.

I ask again, what legislation have the Libertarians authored or passed so far???

All the legislation proposed by Libertarians from a Balanced Budget Amendment to broader Gun Rights has been shot down by the two Party monopoly. Just keep supporting the status quo because that is your comfort zone.

My responces in red.

In other words, they are "Johnny Come Lately's" to the issue... As it has been going on for long before Sandy Hook, tragic as it was. Get a grip Franco.

The Repubs haven't said a word to protect Gun Rights since Sandy Hook, zero, zilch, nada. In fact, some of them have come out in support of more gun laws. I have a grip, you need to remove the blinders!

If Harry supports gun control that will be the end of him.
Obama has put him in a tough spot.

I belive the NRA gives Reid a high rating.

Agree, except he is saying it would never get through the House. He may just be using that for cover, but I think the House has made it clear.

From your link...

"
Instead, Senators will focus on passing legislation that can move through the Republican-controlled House,
Reid said.

"

Why would the Repub controlled House approve of any new forms of Gun Control? If anything, the Repubs should be fighting any and all gun control and moving to repeal all gun control laws for law abiding citizens!

Reid may have some indication of which new gun laws the House Repubs are willing to accept since some have openly spoken of the need for more. No doubt Reid is spinning some of this. But, where is the Republican Party's statement on Gun Rights since Sandy Hook? Not the individuals but the Party's stance? Are they leading on the issue or hiding from it?
