Who is the most pro-gun presidential candidate?

I'm rather annoyed that nearly all the candidates (democrat or republican) are moderately to severely anti-gun.

What is your opinion? I think McCain seems to have the best track record, but his presidential hopes seem to be withering even before the race has begun....

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am a bit nervous. Hilliary is looking like she has a real shot at getting in.

This whole process to decay our rights as Americans that has been going on is quite disturbing.
The barbarians are at the gate. I would suggest that we, as Americans, stand by our rights, as given to us in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and support those people and organizations that fight for them.
I feel, with some confidence, that as long as we don't lay down and take it. It will be hard for a major change in our Illusion of freedom that we have.

From what I can understand and see. This decay is the result of greed, corruption and the pursuit of control in our government.. Have they not forgotten that they are servants to the people of this great nation.

Good topic

Who is the most pro-gun presidential candidate?

The politicians are slowly turning us toward a socialist government. There are just too many people worried about what the government can do for them. Everyone is looking for a handout paid for with our hard earned tax dollars.

Before my Grandfather left this old world back in the mid 90's he often said that the socialists would take over this country without firing a shot. He told me that they would take our guns away though legislation and the vast majority would buy into that lie. He was holding my son on his lap at the time, when he looked me in the eye and said, "This little boy will have to pay the price for what we allow to happen. Remember that every time you vote."

It's just too bad we don't have any candidates I like, and unfortunate that we'll have to cast a ballot for the person we dislike the least. Our decision will be based on who wants to legislate more gun laws...........or take them away.

With that being said, they'll never get mine.

We need to convince some modern Davy Crocketts to run for Congress. Thumbs up

Not only should we be introducing our children to the outdoors, but we should be educating them in politics when they are old enough to understand. And encouraging them to vote and if they have the ability run for positions where they can represent their fellow Americans in a positive manner. Too many times in the past few years have I encountered those who have no interest or who don't think it matters anyway. I have run into folks (in their 20's) who don't know the difference between the American Revolution and the Civil War! This has got to be the result of poor educational structure in schools, and a lack of discussion at home. Not only is it troubling for our rights, but a potential doom to the foundations of our country as a whole.

I agree with you.

My daughter certainly has been involved in many political discussions considering that I am a conservative - moderate republican/libertarian and my wife is a moderate democrat and we each are very opinionated.

Right now my daughter wants to be a democrat like my wife. I am not worried as my daughter is quite the saver of money and as soon as I explain that the democrats will take a good 30 - 50% of her hard earned money she'll change her mind lol

Not that he has a chance to win, but Duncan hunter, hands down.

Besides having the right name Yes , I have personally been dove hunting on opening day, and ran into him at an IHOP on an after-the-hunt breakfast. He had just finished his hunt, with his Marine son, and some of his son's Marine buddies. While we were sitting there, we overheard him on the phone organizing an elk hunt for a marine who had lost an arm in Iraq..... He's good people, but as I said, he doesn't have a chance....... sad

Who is the most pro-gun presidential candidate?

This would be funny if it weren't so sad........The explanation for the freedom fighters (not those fighting for freedom but rather those fighting against freedom) was found by me many years ago in the strangest place.......Disneyland!

I was sitting listening to "Great moments with Mr. Lincoln." For those of you who haven't been there, this is an exhibit with a lifesize, animated replica of Abe Lincoln. They have him recite some of his speeches. The part that has always stuck with me was when he said that our freedom would never be taken by force by an outside invader. If we lose our freedom it will come from within.

The way I see it from here in California, as long as people keep playing "team politics" whereby they vote "their party" without regards to the true positions of the candidate as evidenced by their past record, we will continue the downward slide to totalitarianism. While everyone is watching their favorite sitcom etc. etc., the freedom fighters will legislate us into total submission with hardly a notice. Cry

When you stop and realize that the powerfull socialists control the views of most University professors, most of the print and TV media outlets, and a major political party, the country is in real danger of no longer being the land of the free. Cry

Duncan Hunter or Tom Tancredo would also be your man.

Look I know I've said some crap about Tancredo on this forum regarding other subjects, but he is one pro-American and pro-gun politician. I'll give him that!
