Comments: Couple of Gun Items

If I were to seek public office, the LAST thing I'd want would be an endorsement from the NRA.

If you were running for public office in Idaho, you would want it. Even most Democrats running for public office don't support restrictive gun control here--or at least, if they do, they won't admit it.

This is a serious gun owner state. The last time I checked, about 5% of the population has a concealed weapon permit. There is no state level regulation of machine guns. Guns are everywhere. Oh yeah, our murder rates are very low (better than the equivalent rate per 100,000 in Britain), and most women feel reasonably safe walking anywhere in our biggest city at night.

I don't care WHAT state is involved. I would NEVER, under ANY circumstances associate MY name with that bunch of political whores. But, I'm a person of principle, which seperates me from 99.9999999999999999% of the Amerikan population. NRA, bah.
