    VoteVets.org seems to think that Iraq/Afghanistan veterans are a bunch who don't much care for their 2A rights.

    VoteVets.org Releases Powerful New Ad Calling for Background Checks for Gun Purchases | VoteVets.org

    Of course they fail to mention the fact that his issued M4 was a fully-automatic rifle, one which would require extensive legal work and background checks to privately own as a US citizen, and is in no way comparable to a semi-automatic AR-15 in that respect.

    Here is the "advertisement" video:

    Who is VoteVets, you ask?

    Reading about the list of "advisors" to this group, it is composed of largely people from New York with ties to Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George Soros. Several have served on the Council on Foreign Relations. As a veteran I would disavow any connection to these people.

    As a retired GI, I would have nothing to do with an organization like this.

    I occasionally wonder what it would be like to join an organization that I strongly disagree with, just to try sowing hate and discontent inside it. Get members fighting amongst themselves and just generally try and implode said group. I think it might be fun :thumbup:

    Since the Seattle times put their paywall policy into effect, I've sorta been in withdrawal from that sort of environment :p
