This has less to do with rights for them, & more to do with making them feel normal. That's like rewarding a Childs bad behavior. There's no way anybody can argue against the laws of nature, or are you saying that humanity has been wrong since the beginning of time? You can say equal rights when they've been denied by God the rights of traditional marriage, the right to bare kids. Laws of nature Dupont! Even magnetic pull recognizes the law of opposites. Lol! No name calling Dupont, state your case against the laws of nature. Please don't compare being gay to being black. It's apples & oranges & rather offensive!
Same sex pairings are also common among animals. So your assertion that that it's against the laws of nature falls flat.

The bottom line is that the opinions of a dwindling number of people like you are not a sufficient reason to deny a certain group of taxpaying citizens equal rights and protections under the law as guaranteed in the Constitution.

Tea party Republicans in New Hampshire want to press criminal charges against state legislators who voted to repeal the state's Stand Your Ground law and kick them out of office.

Two Republican members of the state House of Representatives and a former state GOP chairman have filed a petition to remove 189 members of the state House and file criminal charges against them for their March 27 vote to repeal the controversial gun law. The group claims that the vote violates the lawmakers' oath of office, unconstitutionally challenges the Second Amendment and fails to adhere to state constitutional protections on life.

so it's not hard to see why the Tea Party polls at 8% favorable.

Why Republicans Should Embrace Change

Nate Cohn lays out the dismal future for the Republican Party if it tries to get by with its present electoral coalition:

The problem for Republicans is simple: They built relatively durable, ideological coalitions immediately before a new generation of socially moderate and diverse voters completely upended the electoral calculus. In 2012, voters over age 30 went for Romney by 1.5 points—a result that shouldn’t surprise observers of the Bush elections. But the persistent and narrow GOP lean of the 2000 and 2004 electorates was overwhelmed by Obama’s 24-point victory among 18-to-29-year-olds. Democratic success with young voters is a product of demographics, not just Obama’s fleeting appeal or Bush’s legacy. Just 58 percent of 18-to-29-year-old voters were white in 2012 and 19 percent said they have no religious affiliation; in comparison, 76 percent of voters over 30 were white and only 10 percent were non-religious.

The ascent of millennial voters has turned the Bush coalition into a coffin—and the coffin could be sealed in 2016. It was frequently observed that a Romney victory would have required a historic performance among white voters, provided that Obama could match his ’08 performance among non-white voters. Bush’s 2004 performance among white voters wouldn’t get it done anymore. In 2016, the math gets even more challenging. If the white share of the electorate declines further, Republicans won’t just need to match their best performance of the last 24 years among white voters, they’ll also need to match their best performance of the last 24 years among non-white voters. If they can’t make the requisite 16-point gain among non-white voters—a tall order, to say the least—then the next Republican candidate will enter truly uncharted territory, potentially needing to win up to 64 percent of the white vote just to break 50 percent of the popular vote.

But there’s an ever better reason for Republicans, and conservatives, to change: GOP policies of the past decade proved utterly bankrupt. An activist foreign policy, tax cuts and financialization, and more heat than light on social issues produced a nation at the end of the Bush years deep in recession, mired in two occupations (one of which continues to this day), and trending away from traditional values. It’s hard to imagine a rout more comprehensive, and it occurred after “conservative” Republicans had held Congress for most of two full presidential terms.

Why would a party even want to go back to that? Why would any but the most hell-bent ideologue want to stick with what hasn’t worked? The GOP might make some terrible missteps in trying to reform, but no one should want it to return to the Bush era and the high-water mark of post-1960s conservatism, even if the party could still win elections playing its old hand. Luckily, philosophical conservatism is deeper and more capacious than the Bush coalition and its failed ideology. A new audience for timeless sources, newly applied, is what the thinking conservative ought to aspire to.

As families of the victims of the Newtown, Conn., massacre watched from the Senate gallery on Thursday, 68 senators, including 16 Republicans, voted to break a conservative filibuster to allow debate to begin on a bill that would expand background checks for most gun sales.

That a procedural vote was considered a breakthrough demonstrated how hard it has been to get even the most fundamental, common-sense reform of the nation’s inadequate gun laws past the gun lobby. Groups like the National Rifle Association still don’t want a background-check bill to come to a vote, but at least a few Republicans (and almost all Democrats) recognized how popular the bill is, and how politically unwise it would be to kill the effort before it reached the Senate floor.

For one thing stupid no one's talking about taking away guns in general, just common sense regulation of military assault weapons which have no other purpose than to kill a lot of people in a very short time and requiring background checks so that a criminal can't just go to a gun show and buy a gun.
Who as governor of California signed the Mulford Act into law that prohibited the carrying of loaded firearms in public or in vehicles? That would be Ronald Reagan.
Who urged passage of the 1994? Again, that would be Ronald Reagan.
Who as governor of Massachusetts signed into law one of the toughest gun laws in the country? Mitt Romney.
By the way nitwit what party took a blood oath to obstruct any legislation no matter how beneficial to the American people and the economy so that they could hobble Obama and make him a one term president? That would be the GOP and they failed.
Your idiocy knows no bounds Carol.
military assault weapons are regulated ,you can't buy one now.. it is already illegal to sell guns to criminals. it doesn't matter who passes or supports gun controll as it is unconstitutional reguardless of party .
My AK never killed anyone my M1 never made a choice of its own and my SKS won't shoot by itself. None of my guns are assault weapons

Where in the constitution does it say man & man & man shall have the same rights as man & woman in regards to marriage? When it speaks on equal rights, it's speaking on the rights of individuals, not the rights of groupings. The constitution also says,"the right to bear arms shall not be infringed apon, yet it's illegal for felons to possess firearms. It's becoming more & more clear Dupont, you want to get rid of the whole damn thing, because you're arguing for more gun laws. Now I'm not against the newly proposed gun laws, but I think it's rather hypocritical of you to use the constitution to push gay marriage, but argue in opposition of the 2nd amendment when it already restricts a group of tax passing citizen their right guaranteed by the constitution. I brought that up because, the majority of felons in America are black, due to unequal rights for blacks to start off with. Now we both know that is fact so, why the big push for gays equal rights, over the rights of others? I don't see you exalting the same energy to get blacks their equal rights guaranteed by the constitution!

When Massof left the clinic in 2008, Lynda Williams took over the job of cutting baby’s necks when Gosnell was not there. Cross saw Williams slit the neck of a baby (“Baby C”) who had been moving and breathing for approximately twenty minutes. Gosnell had delivered the baby and put it on a counter while he suctioned the placenta from the mother. Williams called Cross over to look at the baby because it was breathing and moving its arms when Williams pulled on them. After playing with the baby, Williams slit its neck.

When asked why Williams had killed the baby, Cross answered:
Because the baby, I guess, because the baby was moving and breathing. And she see Dr. Gosnell do it so many times, I guess she felt, you know, she can do it. It’s okay.

Adrienne Moton also killed at least one baby by cutting its spinal cord. Cross testified that a woman had delivered a large baby into the toilet before Gosnell arrived at work for the night. Cross said that the baby was moving and looked like it was swimming. Moton reached into the toilet, got the baby out and cut its neck.
