MUDDY posted a topic in Right to Keep and Bear ArmsIf Guns Are Illegal, Only Illegal Immigrants Will Have GunsBy Francis Wilkinson Feb 19, 2014 1:16 PM PT 1565 Comments Email Print FacebookTwitterGoogle+LinkedInSavePhotographer: Scott Olson/Getty Images Is that the UAW in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Do you really think the United Autoworkers Union's drive to organize the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee was about organizing a Volkswagen plant in Tennessee? How naive. Or maybe you believe that the battle over immigration reform in Washington is about . . . reforming immigration law. I laugh at your foolishness. At that treacherous corner where the privileges of the First Amendment collide most spectacularly with the passions of the Second, producing a flaming, 12-car pile-up of twisted facts, shattered reason and mangled paranoia, the denizens are not so gullible. Immigration reform will add over 8,000,000 anti-gun voters to the voting rolls. There may be as many as 11.5 million persons illegally in the United States. And, a Pew poll from last year indicated that if illegal immigrants were given citizenship, they would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-to-1 margin. This is exactly what happened to California -- which was once a Red State. Because of the Simpson-Mazzoli amnesty bill of 1986, the state lurched violently to the left and now canâ€™t pass gun control restrictions fast enough.That's from the Gun Owners of America website. (If you're not familiar with GOA, think of it as the Tea Party insurgent to the National Rifle Association's Republican establishment.) You know when your kid looks up at the clouds and sees the form of a bunny? The GOA looks up at that same cumulous fluff and sees President Barack Obama with a shredded constitution and a posse of gun grabbers. That's also how you get this post from the Center for Worker Freedom, an "educational organization dedicated to warning the public about the causes and consequences of unionization." The United Auto Workers union supports a wide variety of local, state and national politicians who are hostile to Americanâ€™s Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. As part of a larger strategy to change the political culture of the South, the UAW has already given large sums to politicians who favor strict gun control legislation, including in Tennessee and Alabama.
