GBoyd, I actually did make repeated attempts to engage SoCo on the gun control issue in the presidential poll thread, I believe. The issue was his assertion that Obama is not anti-gun, and that we're wrong to say that he is. I (and a few others) pointed out Obama's record on the issue, complete with facts to back the position. He responded much the same way he responded to my last post here -- no debate, just duck, dodge, howl, and personal attacks instead of addressing the points at hand.
The best analogy I've heard was that gun owners voting for Obama is like chickens voting for Col Sanders. Obama's legislative record and public statements back that analogy. SoCo blusters, but won't debate on any sort of academic level that focuses on positions derived from factual evidence.
Blusters, I say the proof is in the pudding and I am so confident in my view that I am staking my guns on it by voting for Obama. What will be more unequivocally truthful then seeing what happens. You can cherry pick and distort all the info you want, but in the end after four years of Obama's Presidency we can see if our guns or taken or not. It don't get more real then that. I really believe Obama will win and I will own more guns over the next four or more years. I will gladly talk to and compare this with you every year of his Presidency.
