How do Pro-Gun Democrats Vote?

October 11, 2018

I met a few people who call themselves “Pro-Gun Democrats”. I’m not sure what that means anymore than I understand the meaning of a Progressive Socialist Republican. Pro-gun Democrats might like guns. They might own guns. They might shoot guns, yet I don’t see how they can be for gun owners and ownership when their party is for gun control and confiscation. How do pro-gun Democrats vote?

Values have a context and a hierarchy. Some things are more important than others. Maybe you have to vote for Democrats to fund abortions..but you also like to go shooting. Maybe you were a Democrat, but now you’re a political independent who looks at every candidate and weighs every issue. The Democrat Party might not be the organization you remember.

Rahm Emanuel pushed the Clinton led Democrat party to adopt its anti-gun political position. That decision earned the Democrat party hundreds of millions of dollars from anti-gun billionaires. The official party position is, “If I had 51 votes, then Mister and Misses America, turn them all in.” I wish that were not the party line but it is today.

Lots of voters don’t like the Democrat anti-rights position against guns and gun owners. Democrat politicians know gun control is unpopular. Democrat politicians pose with shotguns and say they are pro-gun. They also take money from anti-gun advocates and then advocate for gun confiscation. They even say so when you read the fine print buried on their campaign websites. As one Democrat candidate was recorded whispering, “I can be for gun confiscation, but I can’t say that during the election.” Some Democrats brag about a pro-gun rating from the NRA even when the NRA says they have a bad rating. These Democrats want to look pro-rights even when they are against the rights of honest citizens to keep and bear arms.

So what does it mean to be a pro-gun Democrat? I understand that you could give money to the few Democrats who actually voted to end gun control and to end gun free zones. I hope you support the few Democrats who actually voted for Constitutional Carry in their states. I like that you support Democrats who are against gun control. So is the NRA. But then I run into a problem.

Pro-gun Democrats don’t have many options. They vote for a Democrat politician who wants to confiscate guns slowly rather than the one who wants to do it quickly. When can they actually vote for a pro-gun candidate?

In the last 20 years, putting the Democrat Party in political control has consistently led to greater restrictions on our rights to keep and bear arms. What do pro-gun Democrats do with the rest of the Democrat candidates who support gun control and confiscation? As a pro-gun Democrat, do you vote Republican and support Republican candidates in those races?

Do you vote for the candidate who is the most pro-gun, or are you a Democrat who happens to own a gun? Please leave your answer below, because I’d love to know.

    I submit that the problem lies in and with the fact that critical thinking is something of a lost art, no longer being taught in the public schools. That is where the problem lies.

    “Rahm Emanuel pushed the Clinton lead Democrat party to adopt its anti-gun political position.”
    “led” is the past tense of “lead”. Look it up.

    Through the 1990s, I *was* a pro-gun Democrat — but I was a southern Colorado Democrat, where politicians like Congressman John Salazar represented Pueblo blue-collar workers and small town and agricultural constituents who were not bothered about guns. By the mid-2000s, I felt (like others before me) that the national Democratic party was just too weird, so I switched to Independent.

      Thank you for your comment. How do you vote when you see gun control candidates in the general election?

        I am an NRA life member, and 2nd Amendment issues are high on my list. The problem comes, when, for instance, you have a pro-2A candidate who is absolute crap on, for instance, public land issues. (Thank heaven I do not live in Utah.)

    Most democrats vote as their party instructs or wishes on liberal agenda positions, just as union employees typically vote democrat based on how their union tells them to vote. Pro-gun democrats typically consist of a photo op at a shooting range or a staged hunting outing, when have you ever seen a “pro-gun democrat” shooting a AR or semi-auto handgun in one of their ads? You might see a token bolt action rifle or a pump shotgun but that’s about it.
