Response to John Edwards

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 America’s hunters that they could not be trusted with these “assault weapons.”

Apparently they do think we’re stupid. Not a great way to win over voters. Read the whole thing.

  1. I still remember the union suck-ups at the Remington plant in NC (?) that made a big deal during the campaign of presenting Kerry with a shotgun to show their appreciation for him and all he’s done.

    At the time they gave it to him, it would have been outlawed by the bill Kerry sponsored which, IIRC, was actually in the works when they gave it to him!

    You’d think the union members would have known better and kicked their union reps out right then and there.

  2. Interestingly, I had an opportunity to move to Ilion NY when I moved back to the East coast in 2006, but I found the gun laws to be a little too restrictive for my whole “family” to move there.

    I’m sure goog-tube didn’t intend it, but the juxtaposition of the handgun issue (Edwards answer: privilege) to illegal immigration (after one year: uhhh, but five years: right-to citizenship) was enlightening.

    I take his answers to mean he’s a “full national firearms registration” guy.
