The truth about how Americans view their Second Amendment freedom is actually much more interesting than mere political affiliation. This is a reality check worth having just now, as New York’s Gov.

I don’t think either side is going to be happy.

      Shame on them.

  3. I’m sure it’s just a result of the standard regressive worldview; rules are for thee, not for me. The state needs to take guns away from OTHER people, but I’M special…….
