    Santorum is the best bet we have for any kind of sane recovery for America. Lets all work hard to get him elected.

    Gun Owners of America

    Huge Issue Looming Under the Surface of Presidential Politics



    Dear Friend of the Second Amendment,

    While most people would rate the economy and jobs as the most important issues in the 2012 Presidential campaign, another issue of overwhelming importance would be the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

    Many Americans have never heard of this treaty. But President Obama and Hillary Clinton reversed the position of President Bush and are pushing a UN treaty that could ban large classes of firearms (such as semi-automatic firearms) and license everything else.

    In secretive, behind-closed-door meetings, the UN committee charged with drafting the Arms Trade Treaty language has covered lots of ground. From deciding how to force the US to reduce its military strength, to deciding if every American should give up our guns, these folks have every intention of weakening our ability to protect our nation.

    If this treaty were to be ratified by the United States Senate, every American citizen's Second Amendment rights would be threatened by the United Nations. If that doesn't scare every freedom-loving American, nothing will!

    This is one of the biggest reasons why Gun Owners of America believes the most important elections in 2012 after the Presidential race are in the United States Senate, where we must take the gavel away from left-wing dictator Senator Harry Reid.

    There is only one Republican candidate running for President who has not committed to reversing the Obama/Clinton position on the Arms Trade Treaty -- Mitt Romney.

    While every other candidate still in the running for the Republican Presidential nomination has said they would oppose this treaty, Mitt Romney has refused to state his position, refusing to answer the Gun Owners of America questionnaire on this and many other gun-related issues.

    Many in the media have tried to coronate Mitt Romney as the eventual nominee, but we think the nomination is still up for grabs. This is why we want to get every Republican on record.

    There is too much at stake to allow Mitt Romney a "pass" on this issue. With the field getting smaller--we need an answer from Romney.

    Gun Owners of America is asking every person who reads this alert to contact the Romney campaign and ask why he is ducking our Questionnaire, especially on the question of the UN Arms Trade Treaty.

    You can email the Romney headquarters at info@mittromney.com, or call 857-288-3500. Let him know what you think and tell him you would like an answer.

    Time is running out. It's time to get EVERY candidate to answer the tough questions. Stop dodging, Mitt . . . start answering.

    Sincerely,

    Tim Macy
    Vice Chairman


    PS Of the four Republican candidates remaining in the race, only Mitt Romney has refused to take a stand on important issues such as opposing a UN gun control treaty. Please contact the Romney campaign at info@mittromney.com, or call 857-288-3500 and urge him to return the Gun Owners of America Presidential Questionnaire.

    Never would I vote for a hatemonger like Santorum. Not in a million years. I don't give a damn what his stance is on gun rights.

    looks like Romney will have the nomination in the bag by the time the primarys hit out west so there isnt any point in getting all lathered up.

    I hope some intelligence takes hold before the election.
    Paul has not the savy to hold the office. His foreign policy is to hand the country over to anyone that decides to invade it by allowing the enemys to take over the rest of the world without intervention. He doesn't have the stamina to hold the office.
    As for viabality, with the race going the way it is now he is an anchor to the right.
    He only helps Obummer by staying in the fight when he knows he can't come close.
    Romney is a liberal in drag and Gingrich is old man washington. Santorum is new blood with good American values left.
    Think long an hard about what you do and think or Obummer will be right back in the tyrant seat.

    Santorum is a festering turd with a very fitting last name.

    Sorry, I can't back someone that plans to tell others what they can and can not do with their own bodies.

    I will add one thing. I find it sad that this is just another example of how out of touch the GOA is with mainstream America that they would support someone like Santorum based solely on guns rights issues. It makes them not only look single minded, but simple minded as well.

    I voted for Obama and don't regret it given the alternative of a tired old man and a flash in the pan dumb as rocks pretty face put up against him. This time around I probably will again because the Right does not have anyone I can believe in more. Ron Paul is close, but IF he was to get in government would end as we know it. I'm not convinced that is a bad idea at this point. They are all corrupt. :(

    If 'The Santorum' is all you have, you need to wash your bed sheets.

    ...Still waiting for Obama to deliver my Python. In the meantime rooting for the only candidate with any real talk of smaller government-Ron Paul.
