Who Will Be The Political Party Of Gun Control?

The democrats have already stepped to the front of the line with the following (remember folks, so far it is just a working draft . . . but you get the picture):

We can work together to enact and enforce common-sense laws and improvements, like closing the gun show loophole, improving our background check system and reinstating the assault weapons ban, so that guns do not fall into the hands of terrorists or criminals. Acting responsibly and with respect for differing views on this issue, we can both protect the constitutional right to bear arms and keep our communities and our children safe.

Uh huh . . . interestingly, they preface all this with the party's support of the Second Amendment, which is a seachange. But it's just words . . .

I am curious what the republicans will say about firearms in their 2008 platform.

I would hope that the republicans would put defending our basic human right to defend oneself that is protected by the second amendment is to be defended....not pissed on as the democrats have. The right to keep and bear arms is a civil right.
