Brady's Solid Support of Democrats Affirms Party's Anti-Gun Posture, Says CCRKBA
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Thanks to the Brady Campaign's list of endorsements for the Nov. 7 elections, which almost exclusively went to Democrats, it is now clear that the Democrat Party's anti-gun philosophy really hasn't changed, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today."

"'For several years,' observed CCRKBA Chairman Alan M. Gottlieb, 'Democrats have been carefully crafting their rhetoric to conceal their anti-gun agenda. They have espoused 'support' for the Second Amendment and individual gun rights, but the anti- gun rights Brady Campaign's list of endorsements belies any pro- gun positions the party has professed.'" ...

"Things look a lot better for the Second Amendment than they do for the Republican party. A race-by-race analysis of the Senate suggests that, while party control of the Senate could change, the Senate is very likely to retain a pro-gun working majority."

"A 50-seat tsunami in the House would result in a gain of over two dozen seats for anti-gun forces; the more realistic scenario is a total Democratic gain of 30 of less, with about half of the freshman Democrats being anti-gun. This would leave the House with a fairly comfortable pro-Second Amendment majority."

"In the governors’ mansions, gun owners could even come out ahead on this election, if pro-Second Amendment candidates hold on in some close races ..." ...

Additional information to help analyze the strength or weakness of gun control in the 2006 elections follows the list." ...

"Self-defense is a privilege that governments may choose to grant or withdraw. You have no human right to self-defense. If a government does not impose repressive restrictions on gun ownership—more severe than even the laws in New York City or Washington, D.C.—then that government is guilty of violating international human rights."

"So says the United Nations in its latest assault on the Second Amendment." ...

"We received the following email from a member, who had heard that Costco Wholesale warehouse clubs had banned firearms in their stores. Read the letter, and the response from Costco below. While JPFO agrees that Costco has the right to restrict firearm possession on their premises, we also believe that firearms supporters have the right to protest with their dollars, by not shopping at Costco."

WA: If Burner Is Pro-Gun, She Must Repudiate Brady Campaign Endorsement Says Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is challenging Democrat Darcy Burner, candidate for Washington State's 8th District, to repudiate her endorsement from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, on the grounds that she has claimed to be a pro-gun Democrat."

"'Early in the campaign, Darcy Burner indicated that she supports an individual citizen's right to keep and bear arms,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan M. Gottlieb. 'Now is her chance to prove it by telling the Brady Campaign to keep their endorsement. Otherwise, it is a clear signal to firearms owners in Washington's 8th Congressional District where she really stands on the issue of individual gun rights.'" ...

"Meier toured the Remington Arms factory floor, meeting with employees. The union that represents many of those workers has endorsed Arcuri; however, many of the people who spoke with Meier said they would vote for him because of his stance on the Second Amendment right to bear arms." ...

"Gross said legislation that limited the Second Amendment would have a devastating effect on the area surrounding the factory because it could have an impact on plant output and employment." ...

"As a strong supporter of our Second Amendment, I recognize that Sen. George Allen is a true defender of the amendment that gives us the right to bear arms. Below is a partial list of our senator’s Second Amendment accomplishments while serving us in Washington:"

"- Co-sponsored a bill that allows law enforcement officers to carry concealed weapons across state lines. This bill was strongly supported by numerous law enforcement organizations."

"- Sponsored a bill to eliminate the unconstitutional District of Columbia gun ban."

"- Introduced a Right-to-Carry Reciprocity bill that would allow individuals with concealed carry permits to carry in other states, in accordance with that particular state’s laws." ...

"When November arrives in Wyoming, Republican electoral landslides are supposed to be as dependable as the cold west wind that screams down the Rocky Mountain front."

"But with less than a week to the election, Wyoming finds itself in the middle of perhaps the closest congressional race in a generation, with a well-funded Democrat — Gary Trauner — running roughly even with Rep. Barbara Cubin, a six-term incumbent ..." ...

"But Trauner isn't like the other Democrats who've tried to unseat Cubin. He generally supports Second Amendment rights — a popular stand in this gun-friendly state. He's a businessman who says reducing the national debt is a national security issue." ...
 

MT: NRA Supports Conrad Burns, Proving Again it Doesn’t Represent Hunters

"Back in July, I managed to rile up the National Rifle Association when I wrote a column about the largest gun rights organization--and perhaps the nation’s most powerful lobby--not representing hunters. In the column, I wrote that the NRA does a superb job of representing gun owners and should stick to its core mission, protecting the Second Amendment. The NRA should not pretend to represent hunters because the group’s political endorsements conflict with the best interests of hunters. This idea gives a few people severe heartburn. If you want to see for yourself, check out the comments on the column." ...

Submitter's Note: I think Oleg Volk says it best: "No one would ban your hunting rifle. They will call it a sniper gun first."

"The two men running for the 5th Middlesex state representative seat have outlined contrasting views on several social issues, from abortion to gun control."

"Four-term incumbent David Linsky, D-Natick, and Sherborn Republican William Whittlesey are running to represent the district of Natick, Sherborn and precincts 2 and 3 in Millis. In recent interviews and in Monday night’s Natick debate, the two candidates have discussed their views on various social issues." ...

"In its ratings of the candidates, the National Rifle Association gave Whittlesey an A-minus, and Linsky an 'F.' Whittlesey said he supports the Second Amendment. Linsky said he carries the NRA’s low grade 'proudly.'"

"During the September primary, Howard Dean, Cindy Sheehan and fellow moonbats scored an upset in the 1st District. Will they be able to do the same in the 2nd District in the general election?"

"Firing a congressman is nothing new for this district. When Dick Swett reneged on his promise to support Second Amendment rights and increased taxes on Social Security recipients, he was fired and replaced by Charlie Bass."

"Bass's 12-year record is one of accomplishment. He has been good on small business issues and supported tax reductions that have led the way for a robust economy."

"Bass received an A rating from the NRA. Hodes received a glaring question mark." ...

... "Those folks telling you to "do your civic duty" act like your vote actually means something. Don't they get it? Where have they been for the last 40 years? The important decisions are rightfully made by the Supremacist judicial activists on the US Supreme Court." ...

"Take, for example, the second amendment. This is the one that mentions the right to keep and bear arms not being abridged. Little did the Americans who ratified this amendment realize that while gun rights could not be abridged, they could be outlawed. Take, for example, the illegality of a criminal victim owning a protective handgun in New York City." ...

"As somebody who experienced gun violence in New Bedford, I cannot understand how anyone who cares about our young people can support Kerry Healey."

"First, she said she would support the state's gun laws. Now she says she will take the power to issue gun licenses away from the local police chiefs and give that power to her own appointees."

"No wonder she received the endorsement of gun owners who want to weaken state gun laws."

"A couple of days ago, Deval Patrick was endorsed by the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence."

"He grew up in a tough Chicago neighborhood, so he knows how gangs operate. He has promised to hire more police to stop shipments of illegal weapons before AK-47s and worse stuff can reach our streets." ...

"57-year old Marty Layman-Mendonca was hiking in Scotland in July when a man beat her with a steel pipe."

"34-year-old Colin Ross was scheduled to be sentenced today for attempted murder, but that hearing was postponed so doctors could further evaluate his mental status." ...

Submitter's Note: Good thing they banned guns in England (and occupied Scotland), this 57 year old female teacher was lucky to be killed with a metal pipe. No guns were involved.
