trauner stance on the 2nd amendment isn't anything what lummis's issues are. she has many many views that i share with her. no private individual should have to register a weapon and seek approval from the feds for a private sell. and to not reenact the bans from the clinton era. wyoming rancher or wyoming business man?
I agree with you, mostly. I've known Cynthia my whole life and she is a truly hard working, good person. I trust her.
The Trauner gun stuff just isn't true. The NRA ranks him very high among their supporters on the left. My understanding is that his "support" of a federal registry came from a post-911 survey that the NRA distributed asking if people might support a federal gun registry if the federal government deemed it necessary to protect us from terrorists. That's hypothetical support for a big "if" that never happened, not the promotion of an actual registry process.
I also think Gary makes a good point, that he doesn't have to be a native. His children are, and that's why he's running.
I haven't decided yet, that's why I was asking. I'm not sure I like how Cynthia would vote as a neocon, but I trust her to do a good job; she was certainly a fabulous treasurer. Gary is pretty genuine, and has the kind of political savvy that would represent us well in Washington, but I'm still a little nervous about the supermajority since it looks like B.O. is getting elected.
My dad and brother are hunting on Lummis land this week. I guess we'll see if my freezer fills up. That might influence my vote!
