McCain and the Second Amendment

For all you die hard Republicans out there who vote for any Republican regardless of their position on various issues, especially constitutional ones, you probably won’t like this article.

Let me say right here and now that I have no intention of voting for any of the frontrunners. I couldn’t care less what party they belong to. I don’t get that whole party thing anyway, for in my 55 years I’ve found they are pretty much all alike, regardless of party. Where Democrats are praised in one area, they are also vilified in another. Same with the Republicans and every other party out there. I personally would love to see the party system done away with.

We need to stop voting for a “party” favorite or nominee and vote for the person we feel will truly honor our Constitution. I’m so sick of hearing these bozos every single day saying exactly what they know you want to hear just to get into office so they can turn around and do whatever they damned well please…..which is usually the opposite of their campaign promises.

John McCain it seems can’t quite make up his mind on where he stands with regards to the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, which just so happens to be the Amendment that guarantees OUR right to own and bear arms. These days, I find it downright scary that someone running for office would flip-flop so much on a Constitution issue.

JOHN McCAIN IS A LIBERAL GUN GRABBER

The last thing we need is another liberal neocon in the White House. If the Presidency of George W. Bush proved anything, it proved the hazard of electing phony Republican conservatives. At least one is able to clearly see a liberal for what he or she is when they have a “D” behind their name. But put an “R” behind the name and suddenly their liberal, Big-Government, anti-freedom agenda is barely recognized, which makes a liberal Republican much more dangerous than a liberal Democrat.

Let me say it straight out: a John McCain Presidency would be far worse than a Barack Obama Presidency. With a Democrat in the White House, conservatives and Christians suddenly find their principles and are able to offer resistance. Put a Republican in the Oval Office, however, and those same people become blind, deaf, and dumb to most any principle they profess.

Nowhere is McCain’s chicanery and duplicity more jeopardous than in the area of the right to keep and bear arms. On issues relating to the Second Amendment, John McCain is a disaster! For example, the highly respected Gun Owners of America (GOA) rates McCain with a grade of F-. McCain’s failing grade is well deserved.

John McCain sponsored an amendment to S. 1805 on March 2, 2004 that would outlaw the private sale of firearms at gun shows. According to GOA, the provision would effectively eliminate gun shows, because every member of an organization sponsoring a gun show could be imprisoned if the organization fails to notify each and every “person who attends the special firearms event of the requirements [under the Brady Law].”
John McCain also sponsored an Incumbent Protection provision to the so-called “Campaign Finance Reform” bill, which severely curtails the ability of outside groups (such as GOA) to communicate the actions of incumbent politicians to members and supporters prior to an election.
