Why Hasn’t Rick Perry Filled Out His Second Amendment Questionnaire

Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- Gun Owners of America has sent a Second Amendment Questionnaire to every Presidential candidate for this election year.

We’ve gotten them back from several of the candidates — even Newt Gingrich, after I met with him earlier this month to ask why he hadn’t sent his back. But we haven’t received one from either Rick Perry or Mitt Romney.

The fact that Romney is not getting his questionnaire back is understandable, since he has been all over the map on gun ownership. Recently he’s sounding pro-gun, but his history is anything but that.

Rick Perry, however, has a solid record on the Second Amendment as Governor of Texas, so why isn’t he getting his questionnaire back to GOA? I have to believe this is a campaign staff decision, which is a bad decision at best. Perry already has a good record, so why not fill it out so we can know where he stands on issues specific to the presidency?

Newt Gingrich was far from perfect on the Second Amendment when he was Speaker of the House, and he still falters on background checks, but at least he gave GOA his answers and signed our questionnaire. You have to respect him for that.

I have personally had contact four times with Perry staff who all said they would get it done and back to GOA right away, but so far it’s been lip service and no questionnaire.

Bottom line — come on Rick, send GOA a completed and signed questionnaire so gun owners across the country can get a more complete picture of your views.

Please encourage Rick Perry to return the GOA questionnaire by calling 1-855-887-5627.

I'm still waiting for the goa to do something. Anything. The goa unfortunately is all talk and no action. It's the Second Amendment Foundation and the NRA that protects your Rights with lawsuits and legal advice for victims.
