Good News & Bad News of Presidential Candidate’s Gun Politics

Colorado ––( 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 ( 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,
Dudley Brown
Executive Director

I would rather vote for Paul and lose than someone else who wins but we all lose.The frontrunner is almost as big a democrat as Obama. Most of the rest couldnt get re-elected in their own states. Vote for the best man with ideas, who doesnt fit in Washington D.C. Fix it, before it can't be fixed. Hes gonna get a lot of people mad, you have to change the status quo. That will upset the buffet in D.C. no more feasting on our tax dollars.


My apologies….In my previous post, I associated the poster with the comment below the name rather than above.

So, it should be:

Sam – A vote for any other

Mike – "can't do" thinker

Ruphus – Abortionist


Ron Paul is getting my vote. The only candidate with the wisdom, the experience, the principles, and the fortitude to get our off-track country back on track. As Ruphus said, a vote for any other…

Sam, that "can't-do" thinking will be self-fulfilling. Your choice: win or lose.

Voluntaryist, the only two choices are: Give the woman the right to kill her baby or give the baby the right to life. Sorry, the latter trumps the former.


Ron Paul can't win the Republican nomination so let's stop wasting time talking about him.


Ron Paul is actually the only one who can take this country back to the constitution. A vote for any other … you get what you ask for. Paul is not anti-choice; he is anti-government interference in state affairs.


My only gripe with Ron Paul is he is anti-choice for women.


Re: Tom

Ron Paul is pro-life, but he is also pro-local govt because he believes that the people in their respective states should decide.

Tom in OH

If the election was to be held tomorrow, Michelle Bachmann would get my vote, as she is not only pro-2nd Amendment, but also PRO-LIFE! Both are extremely important to me!


Well said, Dennis Hannick. Romney doesn't need to hear anything, and I don't need to have an apology from him. I'm already sick of hearing politicians' lies. Ron Paul is the only man who I trust, and the only candidate who will ever get my vote!

Richard Carpenter

If the election is Romney versus Obama, every gun owner should vote for Obama. Why? Because the Republicans will grow a backbone (and maybe two other body parts) and oppose any anti-gun schemes Obama tries to sneak by us. BUT they will go along with "reasonable" gun confiscation and a vast increase in random "dynamic entry" ATF raids under Romney.

Texas Chris

So, after you figure in Bachmann's vote for the "Patriot" act, Ron Paul is #1 on gun rights.

Ron Paul 2012.

Dennis Hannick

Why should we give Romney anything? An earful? NO! It would only give the liar a chance to cover his stripes and claim to "support the 2nd Amendment"; which means he's a lying SOB and will crap on the Constitution.


Ron Paul 2012. The best record on guns and civil liberties.

Bachmann's vote for the Patriot Act is a VERY big black mark.


Ron Paul 2012 OR BUST!!!!!!!!!
