    Yes, I know that this information is from the 109th Congress, but it is nevertheless pretty good. Not a lot of surprises here, actually.

    here is the link for a listing of the most anti gun senators

    Since Mike DeWine was defeated in 2006, if I could make a list of the most anti gun senators of the 110th Congress, I would replace his name with that of Barack Obama.

    An interesting point to note is that the People's Republics of California, New York, and Massachussetts have both their senators on the list (my list also includes both Illinois senators). Also, five of the ten on the most anti gun representatives list are from the people's Republics of California and New York. Gee, what a shock!:what:

    Lincoln did us a major disfavor when he made it difficult to secede. We'd be much better off if California would just go.



    Would anyone put John Warner on that list?

    You'll soon be accused of <whiney voice>Lincoln bashing</whiney voice> and we can fight the War of Northern Aggression all over again with feelings as intractible to logic and history as to cop-bashing. Lincoln destroyed Federalism, the Bushes destroyed Lincoln's party.

    dont forget ama-gi...when it all hits the fan and they come, like goosesteppers in the night, to take our guns, good ole Texas is still legally able to secede from the union. A little added perk for the state that was a country.

    So when the liberals pass the bill to cripple honest americans and give all the power to the criminals, I'm makin a B-line to the lone star state and secedin.

    Didn't work out for Texas any better than anyone else when they tried it.

    I don't view independence as some sort of legal technicality anyway. It's right there in out Declaration. "That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness"

    Glad to see no one from Pennsylvania on there. I like to think that the gigantic red part of this state can out-vote Philadelphia...

    Ama-gi, texas never seceding from the Union...they were annexed back in 1845 by their own will. It is free to leave whenever they want. And Rogue, dont worry about it...when it hits the fan you can become a Texan. Because at that point being an American will be like being a Frenchy. Once badass but now just a socialist pushover.

    And imperialism...yeah its good to see that our congressional representatives arent among the worst...too bad our governor is.

    Texas didn't secede during or before the War Between the States? I thought it did. I also thought Texas boy fought in the war too.

    This is where things get tricky...depending on who you listen to. The North called what Texas did secession, and the Texans just claimed their state constitutional right (kind of like us calling the 2nd Amendment a right, while the gun grabbers call it an antiquated non necessity) The north lumped Texas in with the south and thus they fought on the side of the rebels. I seemed to have mispoke when I said they never seceded since the winners often write the history books, but there have been law cases brought up to argue whether Texas is a legal part of the US based on the contradicting viewpoints of whether they seceded or not.

    But yes...didnt work so well back in the Civil War time...times are different and I wonder what would happen if Texas said, "screw it, im outta here".

    I wonder who the state Nat'l Guard units would be loyal to: the state, or the Feds?

    The feds have already signed legislation in 2005 (or 2006...can't remember) that says the feds can commandeer National Guard in times of "emergency." They're federal entities now, basically.

    Their loyalty will be to the people with the biggest guns: the feds.

    Small government conservative Republicanism. Ain't it grand?

    Just makes the unorganized militia even more important, doesn't it?

    Texas boys did indeed fight in the war. A famous confederate officer named General Hood lost an arm in the ascent up Little Round Top in the battle of Gettysburg. He was a major general and a division commander.

    And now there is an Army fort in Texas named after him: Ft. Hood.
