Good News & Bad News of Presidential Candidate's Gun Politics
Colorado ––(Ammoland.com)- I’ve got some good news and some bad news.
Two Presidential Candidates, Congressman Ron Paul and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann have returned the National Association for Gun Rights Presidential Survey 100% pro-gun.
What does that mean?
It means that Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann…
- believe that the Second Amendment is an individual right, protected by the Constitution;
- oppose the United Nations’ “Small Arms Treaty” gun grab;
- oppose the banning of semi-automatic firearms;
- oppose banning rifle, pistol or shotgun magazines based on arbitrary capacity limits;
- oppose Big Brother firearm registration schemes; ***will use their executive powers to lift the ban on importation of various rifles, shotguns and handguns currently in place;
- will use their executive powers to greatly curtail or even abolish the egregiously anti-gun Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. This is the department that has finally admitted under Congressional testimony that they allowed known criminals to buy guns that they couldn’t legally purchase in a bizarre attempt to clamp down on arms trafficking. These same guns were used later in the murder of a US Border Guard and others.
Ron Paul has a long history of support for gun owner’s rights in Congress, often in the face of opposition from party leaders on both sides of the aisle.
Michele Bachmann has been a solid vote for gun owners since her election to Congress in 2006. Unfortunately , her vote for the mis-named Patriot Act was a black mark on her otherwise solid record.
That’s the good news.
The bad news is the early front-runner, Mitt Romney, is ardently anti-gun.
As Governor of Massachusetts, Romney gloated about signing a permanent “assault weapons” ban far worse than the ban pushed by Bill Clinton and Janet Reno.
“[Semi-automatic firearms] are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people,” declared Romney in a press release touting his signature of the Massachusetts “assault weapons” ban in 2004.
Mitt Romney views gun owners just like Obama does.
They both think gun owners — like you and me — are merely blood thirsty, domestic terrorists.
I hope you can spare a few moments, and join me, by making a statement for our gun rights.
Thank Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann for standing up for gun owners by returning the National Association for Gun Rights Presidential Survey 100% pro-gun.
Give Mitt Romney (http://www.mittromney.com/contact) an earful. Demand that he apologize to gun owners for his anti-gun record. Mitt Romney needs to hear from you.
I hope you’ll give him an earful about his anti-gun past.For Freedom,
