Ok this is old news but I did not see it on the boards here.


Dick Cheney is a proud gun owner and hunter.

In April the Vice President addressed the NRA to wild cheers and acknowledged his own interest in guns.

But a source close to the White House tells NewsMax that Dick Cheney is a true gun aficionado.

Cheney's collection, our sources say, is in the hundreds of guns, including pistols, shotguns and machine guns -- from antique Thompsons to the most modern European automatic machine guns.

To let off some steam (God knows he has some to let off these days), the Vice President has been known to go out to the federal training center in Maryland where the Secret Service does its own gun practice.

A typical Cheney visit, told to us by a person who attended one, included the Vice President bringing some 30 guns from his own collection.

On the ranger, Cheney would blow away his targets -- with Thompson machine guns, the latest German and Austrian machine guns, Lugars, MP5s, shot guns, you name it.

One after another an aide would hand the Vice President his latest armament, and Cheney would fire away, no doubt imagining al-Qaeda terrorists in his gun sights.

We're told Cheney is a good shot to boot.

Cheney is not shy about his shooting activities. Another Cheney friend tells us that at the Cheneys' Christmas party last year he showcased to guests a video of himself shooting while hunting.

Sig, thanks for taking the time to copy and type that out. I received an email to the same effect, from NewsMax, a few days ago, and couldn't link to it. I was contemplating doing what you did, but you beat me to the punch! That's fine; We're all friends here! It certainly helps one to narrow down whom to vote for this November. I wonder if Cheney is a member of the TCA! blink.gif biggrin.gif Regards, Walter

P.S. I've got this very eerie, sickening hunch Kerry is going to ask her icy highness, little miss carpetbagger herself (HRC), to be his running mate! ohmy.gif cool.gif

Arthur, is that why we are having such a hard time over there in Iraq? tongue.gif You're spending way too much time on the range (with all your weapons) and on this board!!! blink.gif laugh.gif You have probably infected the President with Thompsonitis too!! biggrin.gif Regards, Walter

It sure seems our liberals would have loved to have hyped this in almost anyway then can negatively. I have seen nothing other than this initial article.
Can we possibly have a change in tactics in that they may have recognized attacking legit gun owners does NOT get the liberals votes?
Or am I just dreaming?

Oh Walter if Kerry picks HRC I am going to bet everything I have they will lose. TWO liberals so far to the left would be TOO much for the moderates to digest.

Sig, I agree with you that the conventional wisdom out there says that these two extreme liberals can't possibly win the presidential and vice-presidential race. However, we need to look no further than slick Willie's first and second campaigns and victories at the polls. Unfortunately, significant swaths of the American public are liberal, uninformed, or just plain gullible. I would not underestimate the gullibility factor! blink.gif cool.gif Regards, Walter
