I saw Todd compared this struggle to a boxing match, and this is the 9th round. I respectfully disagree. In a boxing match, there are rules both sides must abide and someone overseeing those rules. There are no rules for the other guys in this fight. They have proven that time and again. This is war...and not the kind of war that we have become accustom to in America. This is war of the sort that we need a Patton for. I don't know who our Patton is. I have heard no one who speaks with the irreverence, the commitment, the fire, the passion, the fanaticism, the true blood and guts to fight this war.

Mods feel free to delete my message. (Post 10 this thread)
Can I confess there would be raised voices and uncomplimentary commentary without ruffling feathers?
My point, clumsily made, is I would not have Tod's patience in dealing with folks at the Capitol. Think most of us would agree on that.
Nor my bar tab, acid reflux, gray hair, and general disdain for those unclear on the concept. . . Just saying

I am getting the feeling that there are a number of moderate legislators out there who view the NRA and 2A activists as impediments to getting a carry bill. I think there may be pressure to exclude both sides - the NRA and the gun control extremists to just get something passed.

Are we set up or will we have the time to rally the troops to support or to call for defeat of whatever bill comes out of the negotiations?

He's one of those guys in Illinois Politics that keeps reminding us gun rights is not a partisan issue.

I have to say, even if someone supports the 2nd Amendment as vigorously as Representative Phelps does, if that person were to commit a crime, they should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. Democrat or republican, pro-gun or anti-gun, a criminal is a criminal.
Isn't that part of this fight? Guns aren't the problem, criminals are...we should punish offenders whenever and wherever they commit the crime. Even if they are at the top of the food chain, like the President, or at the bottom like me. There are no demi-Gods here.
Partisan politics is in this fight too. If Phelps were a republican, his bills would be getting laughed out of the House. It is the very reason of partisan politics that he is such an effective advocate for us...a wolf in sheep's clothing for this issue.

AMERICANS, REPUBLICANS, WHO-GIVES-A-CRAP-ICANS.... They are Americans, and they should protect the constitution which is why they are there. They need to stop the bickering, arguing, and loose the bigger man syndrome and work together.
