Washington, DC –-( There is a candidate for Congress running in Utah that every gun owner should get to know.

His name is Carl Wimmer, and he is a champion of the Second Amendment and of reining in the out-of-control federal government.

Carl is just an everyday average citizen who got fed up when his own state representative voted against freedom one too many times. He ran for office and—to the shock of the political establishment—Carl won.

Other legislators expected the new Rep. Wimmer to fall in line with the Republican caucus once he arrived at the state capital. But Carl had no intention of becoming just another yes man for party leaders. He got into politics to restore liberty, and his list of accomplishments thus far is impressive.

Soon after being elected, Carl helped form the Patrick Henry Caucus. The Caucus, open to state legislators across the country, asserts State’s powers against federal, unconstitutional intrusion.

One of the first issues Wimmer’s group took on in Utah was the “Firearms Freedom Act,” which states that all firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition “manufactured commercially or privately in the state to be used or sold within the state is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of Congress to regulate interstate commerce.”

Rep. Wimmer also authored the state’s Constitutional Carry bill. Constitutional carry restores the proper relationship of the citizen to their public servants by recognizing that We the People are the sovereigns and should not be forced to obtain government approval to exercise a constitutional right.

Carl authored the state’s Health Care nullification bill, which would protect Utah citizens from the unconstitutional mandate of the anti-gun ObamaCare law.

And he co-sponsored a land nullification bill to prevent federal control over land in the state without the consent of the Utah legislature.

Now Carl aims to take his small-government views to Washington. He is running for the new Utah congressional seat that resulted from the most recent congressional reapportionment.

Those who believe in freedom and limited government will not find a better friend than Carl Wimmer. Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund is proud to endorse his candidacy for Congress, and we encourage gun owners from across the country to put Carl on the top of their list of candidates to watch—and to support.
