USA – “Arizona Poll Shows Razor Thin Margin between John McCain, Kelli Ward Heading into Election.” Breitbart News reports on its poll with Gravis Marketing. “Ward gets 33 percent … compared to McCain’s 37 percent. Twenty-three percent of the likely GOP primary voters are undecided walking into Election Day.”

That means gun owners have a chance to stick it to a continually “compromising” establishment GOP. With Ward, they can bring in a conservative with a demonstrable record supporting the right to keep and bear arms and the other major issue affecting it – “immigration.”

Aside from teaming with Democrat Russ Feingold on so-called (and “devastating”) “campaign finance reform” – an assault on the First Amendment leading to an alliance between ACLU and NRA to oppose it – McCain actually has a “D-“ rating from Gun Owners of America. That’s due to a spotty record on guns (putting it politely), which along with some “good” votes includes:

Ban cheap guns; require safety locks; for gun show checks McCain favors outlawing cheaply made handguns called Saturday night specials, and favors mandating safety locks on certain guns. He said he is intrigued by new technology that electronically identifies a person handling a gun, allowing only the owner to fire it. McCain rallied Senate Republicans behind a Democratic measure requiring background checks at gun shows. Source: Scott Lindlaw, Associated Press, Aug 17, 1999.

Supports ban on certain assault weapons McCain said he was open to voting for an assault weapon ban, depending on the details. Source: Los Angeles Times, “McCain Calls for Hearings,”  Aug 17, 1999.

There’s one other issue of direct concern to gun owners – McCain’s aid and comfort to the enemy on immigration issues.  McCain and sellout Republicans Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio, partnered with rabid enemies of gun owner rights Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Michael Bennett and Bob Menendez (all rated “F-“ by GOA)

The end game for the “Gang of Eight’s” so-called “comprehensive immigration reform? A “pathway to citizenship.” That means handing the Democrats millions of new voters that all credible data (and the California experience) identifies as overwhelmingly democrat and overwhelmingly anti-gun.

That means – especially if Hillary wins the presidency and makes good on her plot for  “amnesty” within her first 100 days – ultimately, the legislatures and the courts will be able to pass – and uphold – any citizen disarmament edicts the gun-grabbers want. McCain and the other RINOs are betraying us all – quite possibly irrevocably.

Significantly, and tracking with the polls, Obama led McCain 66% to 23% in 2008. Pandering and whining won’t change that.

Dr. Kelli Ward excels on both guns and immigration, and has earned GOA’s endorsement.  And importantly, in case anyone tells you otherwise, per the Breitbart report, “…Ward would smoke likely Democratic U.S. Senate nominee and current Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) in a general election matchup, too, the polling shows …  Ward … would beat Kirkpatrick 53 percent to 19 percent with 29 percent unsure.”

That means there’s no risk for doing the right thing. Arizonans don’t have to hold on to the incumbent out of fear. There’s nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Tomorrow (Tuesday, Aug. 30) is the primary election in Arizona.  Gun owners have a chance to send the same shock waves through the establishment as the upset victory of Tea Party favorite Dave Brat over GOP mucky-muck Eric Cantor in Virginia.

It can be done again, and the message that will send to the RNC will be unmistakable – Americans who believe in the Constitution want their party back.

If you’re an Arizona gun owner, you have some choices to make. Will you let McCain continue betraying your interests to Schumer and Hillary, or will you vote for Kelli Ward? And will you contact everyone of your Arizona gun owner friends – tonight – and make sure they know why?

UPDATE: And naturally, Grover goes with the pro-“amnesty” gun-grabber. Anyone surprised?

    1. McCain won, to bad for AZ. Now it some old sh*t for another term. Don’t bitch about the government if you don’t want change. You get what you vote for, BE HAPPY or SHUT UP!!!

      1. Problemo es, AZ voters F’d us all. McQuisling isn’t just sabotaging AZ, he’s F’ing the whole USA.

    2. Ron – Only problem I see with you post is you do use social media, this site. May not be facebook or twitter, but still a social media site. Take Care.

    3. “McCain favors outlawing cheaply made handguns called Saturday night specials.”

      This is exactly how the California Handgun roster started. By banning supposedly cheaply made “Saturday night specials” which latte expanded to 1,000s of handguns being banned via the Handgun Roster.

      Arizona gun owners/conservatives VOTE this guy OUT! Enough is enough!

    4. McCain is POS. He has time and time again shut down any questions or requests from families regarding the POW’s that he was stationed and held captive with in Vietnam. He has gone as far as to make any information pertaining to those POW’s classified. He is a coward and traitor to our Country, our troops and our flag. They should have left his ass in Vietnam in a sweat box. along with Jane Fonda, another treasonous, cankerous whore.

    5. Any of you people live in AZ? McCain is not my first choice for Senator. Kelli Ward is not a choice at all! Besides her “Chem Trail” conspiracy, she changes her position on issues on almost a daily basis. Kelli Ward is not a worthy candidate for an Arizona Senator.

          1. Ron, can’t agree any more. We have way to many politicians in office that are just there for the power and screw the people. Time to take out the trash and see what happens. If the new politicians end up being trash then take them out too. Sooner or later the message will get out there that if you don’t represent the people your gone. Put term limits with it and no retirement and the law makers will start the Of the People and By the People again!

            1. Check the empirical evidence of California before you believe term limits will save us. Cali has term limits since 1990. All it did was rapidly accelerate the reconquista, flush the babies with the bath water and fill the tub with even more corrupt anti-gun anti American water

            2. Mike,
              I totally agree about corrupt politicians. I am voting Trump in November, because he is a non politically correct person, who speaks his mind about issues, and doesn’t care who he pisses off, national or international. He makes in one day what his salary as POTUS would be for a year. He will not apologize for America, like the current one does.

        1. Me apparatchik? Not even close!! I am retired L/E and Military. I am an Ultra-Conservative Libertarian and also a strong Constitutionalist. I have never belonged to any political party and never will. I live in Arizona because it is a right to work state. I have never belonged to a union and never will.
          The article that is referenced on the link states what was already common knowledge. Ward stated in 2014 she believed in the “Chem Trail Conspiracy”, then she changed her mind.
          She lost in the primary because the voters know her. Me apparatchik?

          1. You, apparatchik.

            Or just a lying troll and “ultra conservative” idiot who just helped reelect a gun grabbing immigration traitor, McCain.

            What a crock. Produce the actual quotes or stop smearing Ward.

            The one thing I do believe is you’re a “Libertarian”. Not a conservative one. No conservative libertarian would vote for a gun grabbing immigration subversive.

            1. Carlos Perdue,
              You posted the link, not me. If you are going to post a link, at least read what it says. It shows, chronologically how Ward said one thing to Politico and something else to the Republic. I don’t know what was said on twitter. I don’t like and don’t use “social media”.
              Immigration subversive? I grew up and worked in Southern Arizona. I patrolled the Arizona/Mexico Border from New Mexico to California. I arrested countless illegal aliens and was glad to do it. They could put minefields along the border, except it would be hard on wildlife and livestock. No illegals, or children of illegals, should be given a legal status. All should be deported back to country of origin, or incarcerated, if felons.
              As for “gun grabbing” I am a lifetime member of the NRA. McCain’s rating has fallen in the last several years, Ward has no rating. since she has not actually voted on any gun related item.
              Since you like using slurs and slander, I will not be replying to any further comments.

            2. Still no quotes, still evading and dissembling.

              Anyone who works for McCain is an immigration subversive and a quisling, despite the rest of your alleged bio and alleged support for Trump.

    6. McCain has been trading on the “war hero” card for decades. While I salute him for his service during the was, that is completely separate from his service as a Senator which has been a disaster to gun owners and others. Not only is he universally disliked on Capitol Hill for his ugly temper he also has consistently betrayed his oath to support and defend the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

    7. It’s too bad that Donald Trump endorsed Senator John McCain in his re-election bid, as well as Marco Rubio. Trump flat out supports gun-grabbers, and you’ll vote for him, too.
      When will you ever learn?

      1. I’ll tell you why. I have problems with Trump and I’ve said that all along but there is absolutely, positively NO ONE who, at this point, can beat Clinton except Trump and I’ll vote for the person who will put a stake in the political heart of the Clinton empire once and for all. That’s why I’m voting for him.

        1. True! I’ve also had concerns about Trump. Nevertheless, I’m voting for him too. I hope all gun owners do too.

      2. News Flash, harry: Trump is the Republican nominee, not Cruz. If you support anyone other than Trump, you’re working to elect Hillary Clinton.

    8. McCain should have been gone years ago.Why do we keep voting in liars and cheats that only care for themselves
