Well, I think the Democrats finally figured out that if they are openly anti-gun they loose elections.

Now, they are only anti-gun after they get elected.

It doesn't look especially pro-gun to me.  The description says "meet the surprising number of Americans who choose to bear arms."  Their choice of words makes it sound like those of us who own guns are some sort of anomaly that the "enlightened" mainstream should be aware of.

 

I do believe that the Left is learning that being anti-gun is a losing political platform.

Did you click on it and listen to the 5 minutes of audio?  I thought the same about the wording but it was just cleverly written to entice both sides.

 

Read some of the comments too, some are very well thought out and written others are the epitome of left wing mentality.

I don't recall who said it, might of been Uncle Ted.....anyway it was during a heated discussion about firearms and the left was attempting to make their case and the gun enthusiast said, "IF you don't think the thought of a potential victim being armed is a deterrent to crime then I'll pay to have a sign made and put in your front yard that reads, "This Home is Proud to be Gun Free"."

That sounds like Uncle Ted!  He has a way with words!

 

No, I didn't listen to the audio.  Maybe there's some hope that the tide may be turning in our favor.
