    What effect will it have on your gun rights?

    One less liberal in Congress can only be positive for the 2A.

    Let me say it this way:
    The U. S. would never have come into being if he had been in charge at Concord!!!!!

    What did Biden say to him at the Congressional Popefest yesterday? They were sitting together and then Boehner started crying...
    Probably was something like, "Sorry John, but if I run for Pres. that means no more of our special backrubs."

    Boehner's leaving will have the same effect as him staying... no effect at all.

    Good riddance!! Will our gun rights improve? Hard to say, but he never belonged there in the first place. Hopefully we'll get someone that will actually defend our rights, particularly for the 2A!

    As Obama encroached on our rights a good conservative speaker should have made laws to stop him. Boehner did nothing. Hope the next guy believes in the constitution and our gun rights.o_O

    Guess Boehner will get $223,500 a year in retirement plus benefits. Average social security recipient gets $12,000. You would think for giving that kind of lifestyle he would protect the rights of the people who pay him. Glad he is gone.

    Bayner (intentional) intentionally mishandled bills and used his position as an abuse to the elected officials put in office by THE people. He, Reid and Pelosi were the largest hindrances in the last few years.

    I'm glad he is gone. When you use your elected position as an oligarchy you need to go!

    There is an immutable law of politics that says something to the effect:
    When a person is elected to a body to represent the voters, that person soon begins to represent the body and not the people who elected him.
    Bonehead is/was a prime example.

    Barry's lapdog is gone. He didn't do what he promised to the conservative voters that put in there. Good riddance.

    We need Trey Gowdy to be Speaker, that would really start a chitstorm with the Demorats.......and that it's just what we need, root all the socialist bastards out and run them out of town.

    Mitch McConnell needs to be next.

    Local connection: I've heard Cathy McMorris-Rogers's name mentioned as another possible successor... if that happens expect More Of Same But In A Dress.

    He might have been weaker than Conservatives would like on a lot of issues but he get's an A from the NRA when you look him up.

    Also in Obama's first term, when the Dems held both houses he helped try and block a few things if I remember correctly.

    I guess you could say without Boehner, things could have been worse. But then again things might have been better! We'll never know what negotiations are really like behind closed doors.

    The blubbering at the drop of a hat thing made him look unstable though. The sign of an old drunk.

    I can't believe all the anti-2A bills that Boehner sponsored and pushed through to become laws. There are so many that I can't name them all. Can someone help me out here?
