Wamp, there it is

Congressman and Gubernatorial Candidate Zach Wamp emails regarding my coverage of the governor’s race and guns:

Read a lot about guns and Tennessee Governor race. Please know that I have a 14 year record of 2nd Amendment Protection with no compromise, no exceptions and no excuses. Our records tell the story. Please make sure you don’t get hoodwinked.

Wamp’s record on guns from OnTheIssues is impressive.

Hats off to Mr. Wamp for reaching out to the blogs.

    Zach’s the real deal.

    He’s been a great friend in DC and on the Nat park carry issue for years. He’s got a long long record of being RIGHT on guns, as opposed to a shifty begging johnny come lately realization (after spending time and resources denying the problem) perspective on guns.

  2. Jason W. Says:

    This is so much more refreshing than the mixed signals we’ve been getting from Haslam.

    Wamp appears to be the real deal and has the record to back it up. Or at least more than…I bought my son a shotgun for Christmas.

  3. Robert Says:

    Unfortunately, he’s a bit of a lunatic on other issues.

    How is he a bit of a lunatic (rather than just being a Republican)??

  5. Don Meaker Says:

    I am concerned that he would want to ban armor piercing bullets. That would ban most rifle rounds.

    Better would be to require all honest citizens to keep and bear their rifles when they vote. With well armed citizens, criminals will go somewhere else. If any felon or illegal alien attempted to vote there they would be, surrounded by armed citizens identifying themselves and committing a felony.

    You’re the man. I got my first 22 when I was 11. But what I really wanted over the years was a really good shotgun.
    So for last Valentine’s day I bought my sweetie an exquisite Baretta 12 over-under that cost more than all my other long guns together. I figured what the hell, I could kill two birds with one stone.
    Problem is, now she’s way better than I am at trap so I just stand there and watch or wander off to the adjacent pistol range….and this year it’s gonna be flowers.

    Somehow, I still end up cleaning the damn thing.*

    *actually, I’m real proud of her. I just can’t afford the bets.

    Robert: Right on that. The GOP just put Steele in charge, who is one of these guys who insists the Second is about hunting, not running tyrants out of town at gunpoint, and therefore semi’s are (stand by for thug value judgement) “not necessary”. I haver many friends who are seriously lefties, because it helps a lot to know what they are thinking, and I hear this BS that the route to disarming citizens is to satisfy a bunch of hicks in the backwoods that they can still whack Bambi. I invite them to learn about all those hicks and rednecks who put this country together, and most of the “elite” (now red campuses, too). I don’t think many of them are seriously interested in reading, as long as they get fed and watered.
    Ah, nuts. I was ready to get back into the GOP out of desperation: there seemed to be a hint that they might re-establish a reasoned constitutional platform and develop principled, well grounded leadership with new faces a.k.a. the party of Lincoln, but I was daydreaming.

    I think Wamp looks interesting. Maybe I’ll toss the lose bones I have to him rather than the Party of Craters.

    Opps, sorry, the second part of my comment was intende for “Countertop’s” comment about Wamp being a lunatic for belonging to the GOP (wheras I am merely incompetent).

    My apologies.

    I like Wamp, even though I don’t like that he voted ‘yes’ for the 700 billion bank bailout last Sep/Oct. Still, I appreciate a lot of what he stands for and has done. (FYI, J. Duncan voted against that bank bailout, both our Senators Alexander and Corker voted yes too).

    I know Haslam personally. I’ve known him for 20 years. I’m not real close to him, but I am well acquainted with him. He is an honorable man. He is not your typical politician. So yeah, it bothers me when I read some of the negative assumptions written here.

    Have you ever had one of your kids say “My teacher is so stupid…everybody says so…nobody likes them, they’re the worst teacher”? Or, have you ever said something like that? By the way, I’m raising MY hand!

    I should listen to myself when I say to my kids “Now don’t call your teacher a name like that. You may not like this or that about them, but they are probably trying to do their job as best they can. It might not be the way YOU would run the class, but they are the teacher, and you should show respect.” Maybe we can show more respect while we state our concerns. Maybe we can treat our elected officials with the respect we would like to receive? Maybe doing that is not only good for us, for our communities, but is also a good object lesson for our kids?

    Lunatic, for supporting religious indoctrination in public schools.

    He also supported McCain/Feingold, taking away out 1st amendment rights.

    He also voted to give favorable trade status to china ( who is our #1 enemy ).

    I could go on..

  10. Brendanav Says:

    Ummm, I think I’m cooling already. I’ll check it out. I don’t give much of a damn about the “religious indoctrination” in public schools. If it’s as effective as mine was, no worries, and after all, eventually we all figure out that God helps them what helps themselves. On the other hand the McCain Feingold issue brings me to a boil with nuclear instantaneity. Fianlly, as for favorable trade status, that’s a bit tricky, since the sods are also covering the bar bill for our latest out-of-control par-teee by purchasing t-bills and also picking up the check for those creepos who smoke them $10.00 ceegars down in Boca Raton (Opps! sorry, Rush!)

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
