Insert obligatory Kool-Aid reference here

You can’t have it both ways.

From the Amendment II Democrats – Who We Are:

We are Democrats, and as such we will support our party’s nominees for local, state, and federal office. During the primaries, however, if any Democratic candidate supports gun control measures that Amendment II Democrats oppose (such as reauthorizing the national ban on semi-automatics) [what reauthorization? –Darkman], that primary candidate is fair game, and we will encourage voters to support Democratic candidates who are in greater harmony with our outlook on Second Amendment rights. But once the primaries are over and the candidates for the general election have been chosen, it is important that all Democrats pull together and support our party’s candidates as best as we are able. Under no circumstances will Amendment II Democrats support Republican candidates who run against anti-RKBA Democrats. We are, after all, Democrats.

And in comments at The War On Guns:

The member of my party who disagrees with me is better than the member of the opposing party that agrees with me.

The utter insanity of this statement is unequivocal.

Pick your causes, and stand by them even if I don’t agree with them. That’s fine with me. But don’t pretend to stand for something only as long as it conveniently doesn’t contravene your arbitrary allegiance to your chosen oppressor.

There are other things about this group that make me tend to believe they are only a front for “reasonable gun laws.” The slip-up about “reauthorizing the national ban on semi-automatics” is one, because there never was any such thing. Another one is: “No rational society founded upon democratic principles, however, can function without some measure of gun control. To remove all gun legislation from the books is to invite anarchy.” There is no evidence that it invited anarchy during the century and a half that this country existed before 1934. There is a great deal of evidence that such laws affect only the already law-abiding, reducing their ability to defend themselves against criminals and criminal authorities.

  1. Yes, it’s the Amendment II Democrats webmaster here – David Cordea has graciously offered to let me expound on the above statements, and I will do so soon. But until then, if you seriously think our policy on Democratic candidates means that either Hillary or Obama would ever get any support from Amendment II Democrats, think again.

    This is a tough road in that we are trying to change the Democratic Party from the inside out when it comes to their approach to gun legislation, and it’s not gonna happen overnight. But we are starting to see a few results. “Small moves, Ellie, small moves…”
