Mr. Michael Steele is the new Chair of the RNC---
Thank you -pete-a commenter at Gateway Pundit:
hate to rain on your collective parade but Steele doesn't even understand that the 2nd Amendment isn't about hunting.
Q: Your views on gun control?
A: My views are pretty much in line with the governor's. I grew up under some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. You can have all the gun control laws in the country, but if you don't enforce them, people are going to find a way to protect themselves. We need to recognize that bad people are doing bad things with these weapons. It's not the law-abiding citizens, it's not the person who uses it as a hobby.
Q: Should people have access to buy assault weapons?
A: Society should draw lines. What do you need an assault weapon for, if you're going hunting? That's overkill. But I don't think that means you go to a total ban for those who want to use gun for skeet shooting or hunting or things like that But what's the point of passing gun laws if we're not going to enforce them? If you want to talk about gun control, that's where you need to start. We've got 300 gun laws on the books right now. At the end of the day, it's about how we enforce the law.
NOT ANOTHER ONE OF THESE GUYS! Sheesh!

And this interview from PJM and M.Malkin:
My comment on Z's blog:
Mr.Steele needs a bit of coaching as to original intent -of the Constitution that is...Hint-the Second Amendment was not added for the sake of hunting...
I'll wait a bit before I get excited...

As to the LIFE issue-well-he's vague-and you must understand--I don't like to have to read between the lines!
As I said - 'school's out' on Mr. Steele. I'm too used to being blind-sided by the R Party's go along to get along attitude..
PS. they just helped vote themselves $93,000 EXTRA in expense money!:
Read it a weep...
