Many of you know the supreme court is challenging our right to own firearms. They will soon be deciding wether the 2nd ammendment protects the rights of indivduals or just a "militia" (Wich the gov't defines as the national gaurd)
To prevent them from saying individuals can't own firearms I suggest you support presidential candidate Ron Paul. He is gaining serious momentum now and has a real chance to win. He is a true conservitive and believes in strict interpretation of the constitution. he will protect our right to own a fire arm as an individual. He states directly that the 2nd ammendment protects our INDIVIUAL right to own fire arms here is a quote>"I share our Founders’ belief that in a free society each citizen must have the right to keep and bear arms. They ratified the Second Amendment knowing that this right is the guardian of every other right, and they all would be horrified by the proliferation of unconstitutional legislation that prevents law-abiding Americans from exercising this right."

and his firearms stance at http://www.ronpaul2008.com/issues/second-amendment/
He is the only candidate who has a proven record of supporting our rights not just claiming he will. here is an example. have always supported the Second Amendment and these are some of the bills I have introduced in the current Congress to help restore respect for it:
H.R. 1096 includes provisions repealing the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act and the Federal Firearms License Reform Act of 1993, two invasive and unconstitutional bills.
H.R. 1897 would end the ban on carrying a firearm in the National Park System, restoring Americans’ ability to protect themselves in potentially hazardous situations.
H.R. 3305 would allow pilots and specially assigned law enforcement personnel to carry firearms in order to protect airline passengers, possibly preventing future 9/11-style attacks.
H.R. 1146 would end our membership in the United Nations, protecting us from their attempts to tax our guns or disarm us entirely.
In the past, I introduced legislation to repeal the so-called “assault weapons” ban before its 2004 sunset, and I will oppose any attempts to reinstate it.
I also recently opposed H.R. 2640, which would allow government-appointed psychiatrists to ban U.S. veterans experiencing even mild forms of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome from ever owning a gun.
You have the right to protect your life, liberty, and property. As President, I will continue to guard the liberties stated in the Second Amendment.
I suggest taking the time to look into him and If you are interested go to www.teaparty07.com
and help donate to get him into office. He is at the tipping point now where with a little more support he could actually win.
