He didn't already lose your vote by supporting Feinstein's bill and high capacity magazine ban?

What exactly does he have to do to lose your vote?

Certainly in the next primary.

If he's running against a Tea Party type in the next General, I'll probably chose "none of the above."

But my point is, if I, a registered Democrat write to him, then it counts for a lot more than if someone who would never under any circumstances vote for him does. Being anti-2A is risky in PA even for a Democrat unless you think you can carry the state with votes only from the big cities.

Just Like 150 million gun owners and 5M belong to the NRA....SHAMEFUL.

What's that saying?

1. There are people that make things happen.
2. There are people who watch things happen and
3. There are people who wonder what happened.

Looks like Gun Owners are going to be #3.

For all those who DID show......THANK YOU.


To be honest this did not seem to be promoted very well. I only found out about it last tuesday and by that time I was already committed to going into work that day (something I could not get out of).

I didn't see anything about it on PAFOA, even made a post over there asking about it and not too many people seemed to know about it. I don't recall seeing anything on it here on this site either (but I also was not on this site much last week).

The only way I did find out about it last Tuesday was by seeing a random post on Tanners Facebook page where someone asked about a rally in D-Town...

It was promoted enough that at least 200+ people knew. In this time of gun owner assault, it's up to Gun owners to pay attention, don't ya think ????

The media is quashing everything pro gun, you have to be proactive looking for it.

It was publicized on the other forum.

But not on this one.

You're a member of both forums, and so you probably know that quite a few of us don't much bother with the other forum much any more.

Remember that when you point one finger at others, you've got 3 more pointing right back at yourself. Don't blame other people for not knowing about something that it was fully in your power to tell them about.

Nothing about this rally on this forum until after the fact. If you don't publicize it where the gun owners are, how the hell are they supposed to find out about it? I can guarandamntee that the press won't let us know.

The other forum has 57,000 members, this one has 767, no excuses.

If the troops aren't self motivated under these circumstances, maybe we oughta just get on the trains now.

Come on PP. Most of us who are here have permanently left the other place. I don't go over there to look at anything other than what people are trying to sell. Don't blame me if you post something there looking for support but don't post it here.

I didn't blame anybody, just pointing to the big picture of apathy.

Hate to repeat it but:

125 Million Gun Owners

Barely 5 Million NRA Members.......
......something is seriously wrong don't ya think??

Been saying that for years, back when it was 100 million gun owners and only 3 million NRA members.

It wasn't even really publicized on the other forum very well either...It was "only" posted in the LV. region from what I could tell, and I just now saw that.

Normally when I am over there I will check out the PA/Natl political forums, firearms forum, and the lounge..It is very rare (maybe once a week) that I will go into the "Regions" subforums. I simply do not enough time to click on every single forum on either of these pages.

To be honest thats one of my biggest beefs with having so many subforums, lots of information probably goes unseen because it is spread around so much.

In any case, I hope the next rally gets promoted better...
