Quote of the day—Howard Nemerov

For 2012, the most important criteria in determining a candidate’s legitimacy: how comfortable is the candidate with the concept of armed citizens?

A Tough Year for Gun Control’s Brady Campaign: Gun rights advanced across the country, and Brady’s own statistics undermined their cause.
[As has been pointed out by many others the attitude a candidate has about the specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms is a strong indicator of how they regard other freedoms. If they are opposed to the people keeping an bearing arms then one must seriously suspect they want to change the relationship.

As a single political metric for freedom It’s far from perfect (numerous counter examples could be given) but if only one measure is used it probably is the best. And in a worst case scenario the RKBA can be utilized to recover the other freedoms. It is not so with any other single measure. This is why the NRA calls the RKBA America’s First Freedom.—Joe]

  1. And I think that their willingness (or unwillingness) to state a clear 2A policy position while campaigning says a lot, too.

  2. Which is why I could never vote for Mittens. Living in NH I got to see him up close and saw the most sweeping anti-gun legislation pass under his watch.

    For those who say not voting, or going third party, in the presidential is the same as a vote for Obama I say so what. I don’t see that much difference and I get to vote my conscience, not rubber stamp the establishment choice.
