John Edwards, who’s views on the second amendment are well known:
Of course, that hasn’t stopped John Edwards from saying he supports the second amendment and loves hunters:
I think, first and foremost, that we need a president who actually believes in the Second Amendment and in the individual right to own firearms. And, the importance in that, both for hunting and for protection, and I do.
Do these people think we’re stupid? If John Edwards supports the second amendment, I’d hate to see what not supporting it would look like. I was happy that Field and Stream yesterday printed Chris Cox’s response to Edwards:
Edwards, of course, ran on the ticket with John Kerry at a time when Kerry had sponsored legislation that would have banned common semi-automatic hunting shotguns like the Remington 1100, Browning Auto-5 and Benelli SBE. His running mate told Americaâ€™s hunters that they could not be trusted with these â€œassault weapons.â€
Apparently they do think we’re stupid. Not a great way to win over voters. Read the whole thing.
