Jeff Merkley on the 2nd Amendment

Jeff Merkley believes in increasing personal freedom by keeping government out of people's bedrooms and out of their gun cabinets.

Merkley believes government works best when it is promoting personal freedom and responsibility, not trying to impede by getting involved in people's personal lives.

Merkley is a strong supporter of the 2nd amendment and as Oregon's next US Senator he will work to protect the right of individuals to own guns.

He believes we need to focus our efforts on enforcing the laws we already have on the books. And we need to close loopholes that allow guns to get into the hands of criminals. This is why he strongly supports a national law requiring back ground checks at gun shows.

Hey, you... as you know, our own government is swiftly taking away
our God-given right to own firearms; if they do it anymore, the crime rate
will go through the roof… skyrocketing… nearer the Son than our Maker!! Gangs, rape, chaos... Do you want this for your towns? HELL NO!!! What happened after
Katrina is a poifect example.

I'm a very law-abiding citizen, I don't plan
to shoot A-N-Y-O-N-E, but if the bad guys come and there's no protection, as there wasn’t when the hurricane hit, am I gonna say, "Oh, here, just beat me to a bloody pulp, steal my moolah, rob my domicile, rape my wife"?? I'll give'm what they came to do in the first place; I'll say, "You have TWO seconds to get your lily white @$$ outta
here or you had better have hospital insurance." Think about that, Mr.
Hitler, err, I mean, GWB.

I guess we have to declare now... : )

But seriously, if the 2nd Amendment is important to you, review the statements of these candidates before you vote and make your choice accordingly.

That was supposed to read "have to declare GODWIN'S LAW now" but my href didn't go through. Here's the link on wikipedia to that fine phenomenon:

Ted Nugent says guns are simply a tool. And tools give me satisfaction.

Sounds OK until you realize that he does not understand that the "gun show loophole" is BS. Criminals who commit violent crimes do not buy guns a gun shows! They steal them from homes that do not properly lock them when they are not occupied.

hey robert that doesn't mean we need to just let them go to gun shows and do it! Make it as hard as possible for criminals to get guns - gun shows make it easy.
