    What the Eff do you mean, "we enjoy the same things".
    Are you meaning that we "enjoy" others supporting the political party that wants to outright ban guns. Or perchance you mean that we "enjoy" subsidizing the welfare state. We need more Liberal members almost as badly as the Supreme Court does. And badly is how it will turn out in the long run for either gun clubs or SCOTUS. Also, we do act like adults around Democraps-- if we acted like children, we'd take turns beating the hell out of them while taunting them. But your point is well taken; We should welcome into our lives other people who do not have our best interests in mind. You should run for Secretary of Foreign Affairs.

    We dont talk politics at our club!! There is a group that voted for Obama and I know this because I pitched a bit** when they started talking about getting Bush out and Obama in!! That group wont talk about Obummer now even if someone brings it up. Bet they dont vote for him this time. They are a group of folks over 70 and that blows my mind

    I don't understand how any person active in any of the shooting sports can be a Democrat! Yet,I have two brothers (both with doctoral degrees---and me, a retired university professor, with a lowly master's degree) who I strongly suspect voted for Obama. I think one of them has "seen the light", not so sure about the other. Both are hunting and shooting ehthusiasts. HELP!!!!!

    You vote Republican, they vote Democrat, right?

    So in other words each of you voted for a party that grew government like a cancerous tumor, robbed taxpayers blind with corruption, and ran up an obscene amount of debt that will cripple our kids' and grandkids' futures for decades to come.

    Sounds like you've got a lot in common with each other, so enjoy.

    We generally don't talk politics at our club but then again why would we -we are all pretty much on the same page here in Hicksville USA. This isn't exactly the kind of place where you would dare to make a lap around town with an Obummer sticker on your car.

    Here is a related question - has anyone ever seen a brush scratched 4WD pickup with an Obummer sticker on it?

    I don't maybe some of the Skeeties might lean that way but its deffinately don't ask don't tell on that side of the fence.

    If you vote for someone who thumbs their nose at the Constitution, you'd better have a "good" reason for doing so!!

    Both party's are at fault, but the one is "constant" when it comes to violating the Constitution of the United States.

    If that is not enough for you to vote differently, you have a screw loose in the "thinking" department of your brain!

    .

    Believe in redistribution of wealth.

    Think those who have a 100 Straight without earning it should share some of their broken targets with those of us less fortunate.

    Think when I am too slow to get the second target in Doubles that the other shooters, who have not had the hardships that I have struggled with, should help me out by breaking the second target. No one should have to hear those demoralizing negative words "Lost Target".

    And even though I am shooting Handicap from the 14 yard line (two yard reduction), my card should say 27.

    At our local club they have a name for anyone that voted for Obama. They are called the same thing that any thief would be called around here. They are simply lying stealing etc. I don't know of any members that voted for Obama. Jackie B.

    Obviously, in this country, today, we cannot get along. One side has to attack the other. We can't possibly come together, unless there is a national catastrophe, we have to bicker and squabble. Forget the fact that the loudest voices seem to becoming from the far right or far left.

    It is sad for me to watch the country that I love become so polarized. This is why we are in the situation that we are in. Not because of Bush or Obama! You forget, when you blame the President only, that there is a system of checks and balances. THE PRESIDENT IS NOT THE ONLY PROBLEM!

    I voted for Obama. I voted to for Bush 2, twice. I'm registered Republican, but I am a moderate. I believe that Gun control is wrong. I believe Public Education is our most important asset in the country.

    Can I shoot with any of you?

    Prefered not if you voted for the current POS. Shows you are not to stable mentally. You obviously are easily convinced and buy onto false BS handed out by the biggest socialist in modern times. You must accept the blame for the condition of this country. So go shoot with your new socialist friends if you can find any at the gun club.
