Gays or Guns

The lamestream media told you:
Democratic presidential contenders participated in a candidate's forum for the gay community, with musician Melissa Etheridge showing superb skills as an interviewer, asking tough questions and making candidates squirm.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
If a tiny, marginal, but loud "community" like gay people can force a presidential debate for their concerns, it is clearly time for the gun-owning community to demand a candidate debate for the 95 million Americans who own guns and are concerned about mounting challenges to their rights under the Bill of Rights.

Unlike recently invented "gay-rights" demands, which among other things reversed long-standing jail terms for sodomy, the right to keep and bear arms is specifically recognized in the Bill of Rights, and has existed since before the nation was founded.

Lamestream "news" headlines for a proposed gun-rights debate are easy to predict. "No Candidates Show Up For Gun Rights Debate."

A top Democrat strategist pointed out that, "All our candidates are supporters of the Second Amendment as long as assault weapons aren't included, so there's no point in holding a debate on what the voters already know."

The Uninvited Ombudsman points out, again, that assault is a kind of behavior, not a kind of hardware, and that any gun pointed at you is an assault, a serious felony crime, and punishable with heavy prison sentences.

How the tiny gay community can accomplish what the gigantic and feared powerful gun lobby cannot was unexplained at press time, and challenges the belief that the gun lobby is all that powerful, especially compared to gays.
