The Discerning Texan

All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.

This is why Romney presents a problem for me, especially his gun record in the past. No, he's no Clinton or Obama, but I would rather have Fred, Newt, Huckabee, Hunter, OR even Rudy before I would trust Mitt with my Second Amendment rights.

Glenn Reynolds pointed to this quote, which represents my point of view on guns more so than anything I have seen on the subject:

“How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual… as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised, and taken care of.”

~Texas State Rep. Suzanna Gratia-Hupp
