I think the gun rights folks have an ideological problem. They claim to be Constitionalists but generally support all the big government "Patriot Act" provisions. If someone wanted to form a real block in favor of gun rights the NRA would court those in favor of Dignified Death (legal assisted suicide), and Abortion not to mention the hippies who don't want the government listening to their phone calls, Google recording our locations, or the Feds tracking who deposits what into bank accounts (try depositing into a corporate account lately?). Should I even mention the NRA should be providing armed escorts for marches of pro-freedom folks who want choose what sex parts you have after you get bored with your old ones or whatever? So in my opinion the gun rights folks are a bit hypocritical pretending to be Constitionalists or Conservative or whatever but go and kick away the other small government folks by not forming their own party of true small government / pro human rights folks. -I was reading how one site determines who is a conservative, liberal, libertarian or authoritarian a few years back and realized being pro freedom meant all personal freedoms, not just your liberally chosen freedoms but not the freedoms of others.
