That was a long time ago. As I said, there are two different Hatches just like Lugar. The Hatch after 1992 is far from the one before 1992 , he suddenly tilted or lurched to the left about that time. In a similar way, Lugar was more staunchly conservative until the late seventies. After that he changed and was more 'bipartisan' and apt to compromise, otherwise known as RINO!!

I accidentally hit the flagged button when I was distracted ... I did not mean to flag this post ... I happen to agree with it. Sorry.

There is no such thing as reasonable gun control. And if James Madison were alive oday he'd agree with me. The second amendment ain't about protecting hunting, it's about the people's right ( and people are the militia as far as the founders were concerned ) to be able to fend off tyranny if needed. And if that ever happened your grandpa's double barrel would not be good enough. We'd need powerful weapons such as assault rifles if we were to undertake a revolt against tyranny. Remember Madison wrote the second amendment and the bill of rights.

"A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained in arms, is the best most natural defense of a free country." - James Madison

For those who don't remember, in 1996 Hatch was the leader in trying to get the Balanced Budget Amendment passed in the Senate. The gun control measures he supported either sound reasonable or like he didn't understand the issues as well as he should have.

I don't like Hatch though, for a different reason -- I think he's corrupt. He was all on board with an anti-trust hearing against Microsoft as long as he was only being lobbied Microsoft's competition; then, when Microsoft started lobbying him, he suddenly changed his mind.

On Greta Van Susteren’s show Tuesday night former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin announced she is endorsing longtime Utah Senator Orrin Hatch in the state's Republican primary. Fast forward to the 7:05 mark to listen in.
