Not too many gun-owners seem suprised when informed of Rudy Guliani's anti-gun record...

"...Giuliani sued gun makers and distributors, backed a federal assault weapons ban and once described the NRA as extremist..."
www.newsmax.com/insidecover/giuliani_ap_interview/2007/09/25/35598.html

It raises a few more eyebrows to learn that just a few years ago (2004), Mitt Romney signed an "Assault Weapons Ban" in Massachusetts.

But what does seem to surprise many, perhaps because of his reputation as a "War Hero", is how Arizona Senator John McCain has been one of the Second Amendment's most active enemies and worst threats. For example, he was NRA's nemisis as recent as 2001, pushing "Gun Show Loophole" (sic) legislation that would have ended gun shows in America.

Ron Paul is the only pro gun guy left... other than fudd-boy Huckabee...

Thats why I'm voting for Huckabee.

A+ NRA rating and has never signed or campaigned for a gun ban. He isnt perfect. But he's best on guns out of the 3 viable Republicans in the nomination process.

Hi Mike!

Welcome to AR15.com.

Sad to see that none of the GOP candidates who have a chance of winning the general election are truly pro-RKBA.

In an interview with CBS's Bryant Gumbel on May 9, McCain responded to Gumbel's question concerning his current views on registration and waiting periods by noting he does not currently support such schemes, but would be "open to any suggestions or ideas," and that, "It'd have to be proven to me that those are effective."


well, that's gotta give us SOME hope...maybe he can be reasoned with and convinced since even the libtards have slightly modified their anti-rkba rhetoric

Nice source. We trust the NRA here. Welcome Mr. Haas.

Later that day, though, McCain commented that, as a Senator, he would be open to voting for an "assault weapon" ban depending on the specifics. "I will be willing to consider any reasonable proposal."


That's odd; I keep hearing people tell me he voted against the Brady bill, so we should support him.
