I knew I wouldn’t be voting for Kerry because of his desire for more gun control, but until I looked at his web site I didn’t realize what a hypocrite he was. This is from http://www.johnkerry.com/communities/sportsmen/common_sense.html :
Strongly Supports the Second Amendment & Gun Owners Rights – John Kerry is a strong supporter of gun owners’ rights and will work to protect common sense gun laws.
His definition of “common sense gun laws” includes all Federal gun laws currently on the books. And to the best of my knowledge he has never voted against a gun restriction. So in just one sentence he contradicts himself. What part of “shall not be infringed” doesn’t he understand?
Of course Bush’s stated position isn’t much different. The only thing better about him is that it’s possible to believe he is just giving lip service to the gun banners viewpoint. Kerry has a long history of voting for Second Amendment restrictions.
Grrr… politicians. Can’t live with them, can’t shoot them.
