On guns you may be center right, but on the issue you are talking about, you're left. You supported Obama, so technically attacking those who attack him are NOT your side. This portion of the conversation isn't really on the guns, but the left/right media. Which you were more than happy to "catch" that big headed buffoon saying something stupid.
