Steele's Supporters

When the Brady Campaign praises the new chairman of the GOP, you know there's a problem.

Last Friday, the Republican National Committee chose Michael Steele as Chair of the RNC, and showed that guns weren't a wedge issue even in an intramural Republican election. At a candidate's debate at the National Press Club last month (which I attended), while the other candidates fell over themselves to describe their gun collections and shooting prowess, Steele stated distinctly and without qualification, that he owns no guns. This was on top of statements Steele made in 2006 about his stance on restricting access to assault weapons that inflamed the gun community.

All of those people thinking that Democrats won't try to push anti-gun legislation because of what happened back in the '90s are kidding themselves. The Second Amendment is under threat and I predict a major assault on it to come soon.
