Why do Republican types say that Democrat types want to take away guns? Not once have I heard the president or any other Democrat say he wants to repeal,alter, or abolish the 2nd amendment.
All of the Democrats I know have guns and love the fact that they can keep them. Most of my Republican friends don't have them, don't hunt, and don't care unless it is a strike against Democrats. Seems like the parties have taken this issue without really knowing who is for or against? I know rural folks mostly vote Republican and have guns. Inner city anti-gun types usually vote Democrat. What about me? I'm am an adult male, advanced degree, professional from the suburbs with a good income. I'm also in the NRA. Each month I get a magazine detailing how the world will come to an end if OBama is president again. Give me a break. Presidents don't have that much time. I have guns, but I usually vote Democrat. I have voted Republican. Whats wrong with me?

I woud recomend that you call, email, write, the office of your senator, represntative and tell them your opinions and hear their response. Here is a list of who I know in the state and national level. I am sure that I am missing people. Please add to this or correct me if I am wrong on any of these people.

Barrack Obama Democrat - gun banner
Joe Biden Democrat - gun banner.
Pat Quinn Deomocrat - gun Banner
Shela Simon Democrat - I don't know. I assume she would follow the part lines.
Dick Durbin- Deomcrat - gun banner
Lisa Madigan - Democrat - gun banner. Wants to make your name public if you purchase a gun. Sort of like a sexual predator list.

Rodney Davis Republican - pro second amendment.
Dight Kay Republican - pro second amendment.
