George Allen's anti-gun record is dangerous to Virginia gun owners.

With your Republican U.S. Senate primary taking place tomorrow in Virginia, I want to make sure you are armed with gun rights facts.

Republican candidate Delegate Bob Marshall returned his National Association for Gun Rights Candidate Survey 100% in favor of our right to keep and bear arms.

The bad news is, George Allen refused to respond. But I'm not surprised -- his anti-gun record is well-chronicled.

Please read the detailed analysis of George Allen's anti-gun record in my email below.

-- Dudley




I have some bad news.

George Allen’s anti-gun crusade will continue if he gets back to the U.S. Senate.

More on that in a minute.

Now, sometimes folks assume that just because a politician is a Republican, they ‘re a solid supporter of the Second Amendment.

I hope you don’t make that mistake.

You see, you and I are only a handful of votes shy in the U.S. Senate of losing our right to keep and bear arms.

We have the most anti-gun administration in nearly 20 years. The last time such a rabid anti-gunner was in charge in Washington, we got the Brady Bill, a ban on an entire class of semi-automatic hunting and target rifles, and millions of gun owners lost their rights.

Unfortunately, it’s virtually certain that we won’t have a true gun rights hero in the White House regardless of who wins this November.

That’s why it’s especially vital that gun owners know where every candidate for U.S. Senate stands.

And that’s why we sent candidate surveys to the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Virginia asking very specific questions about where each candidate stands on your gun rights.

The results might shock you.

First, the good news, Republican candidate Delegate Bob Marshall has returned his survey 100% in support of your right to keep and bear arms.

This should come as no surprise.

Delegate Bob Marshall has a long history of fighting for Virginian’s gun rights in the House of Delegates.

In the General Assembly, Delegate Bob Marshall was the chief co-sponsor of the repeal of the unconstitutional one-gun-a-month rationing scheme that finally passed this year.

Delegate Bob Marshall also led the charge to expand the right of law-abiding citizens to carry their firearms on college campuses.

Marshall has pledged to continue his long support of gun rights in the United States Senate.

However, I do have some disturbing news.

Republican candidate George Allen refused to answer our survey.

This isn’t new. Some politicians refuse to answer the tough questions we ask.

Unfortunately, when politicians refuse to answer, it virtually always means they’d vote anti-gun if elected.

Often, it’s a sign that they’re hiding their anti-gun views -- and George Allen’s anti-gun record will shock you!
*** George Allen proudly declared his support for the so-called “Assault Weapons” ban and pledged to renew it. 1
*** George Allen supported and refused to repeal Virginia’s unconstitutional, and recently repealed, one-gun-a-month gun rationing scheme. 2
*** George Allen voted to crack down on private gun sales, and to end private gun sales at gun shows. 3
*** George Allen believes magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition should be outlawed. 4
*** George Allen supports stringent background checks as a condition of owning a firearm. 5
*** George Allen voted for legislation that would coerce gun owners into locking up their firearms or face criminal prosecution. 6
*** George Allen believes that handgun buyers should be tracked in a massive centralized database. 7
*** George Allen pledged to support mandatory trigger locks for all firearms. 8
*** George Allen pledged a crackdown on enforcement of currently existing unconstitutional federal gun laws. 9
George Allen has joined with liberals time and time again in opposing your God-given constitutional right to self-defense.

Furthermore, with Allen’s refusal to answer the National Association for Gun Rights candidate survey, voters have no idea if he is in favor of the U.N. gun controls that are right now looming over our head.

Allen may not have answered our survey, but his abysmal record on our gun rights is crystal clear.

All across the country anti-gun lawmakers and politicians are pushing the same anti-gun platform as George Allen has throughout his career.

The next U.S. Senator from Virginia will face important choices on many or all of these issues.

So, the question is: How long will it take George Allen to cave in like a house of cards as he has so many times before?

Allen is likely to sell-out gun owners the first time it’s politically expedient to do so.

It makes sense. Many of the gun controls that passed during the Clinton Administration were supported by weak-kneed Republicans who often say “politics is the art of compromise.”

Nothing gets my blood boiling as much as politicians playing fast and loose with our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.

With all that’s at stake this election year, and with your June 12th Republican Primary fast approaching, it’s crucial that freedom-loving citizens of Virginia State know exactly where their candidates stand on the Second Amendment.

That’s why it’s vital you send George Allen a message.

Demand that George Allen apologize for his abysmal record on gun rights. Demand that he answer the National Association for Gun Rights survey 100% in favor of your gun rights, and pledge that if elected he will stop acting like a gun-grabber and cast his votes in support of our Second Amendment rights.

But there isn’t much time.

Here’s what you can do to help:
o   Thank Delegate Bob Marshall for his 100% support of your right to keep and bear arms!
o   Give Republican candidate George Allen an earful by calling him at 804-726-2012. Demand that he answer the National Association for Gun Rights survey 100% in favor of your gun rights, and pledge that in the future, he will stand up to the gun-grabbers and cast his votes in support of the Second Amendment.
There’s no doubt about it, the upcoming elections will have a greater impact on our Second Amendment rights than any other election in our lifetime.

And with so much at stake, I’m really going above and beyond to make sure every person in Virginia who cares about the Second Amendment knows exactly where their candidates stand.

And I’m counting on good folks like you to help make that possible.

So please, consider making a generous contribution of $15, $25, $50 or perhaps even $100 -- or whatever you can afford -- to help me contact as many Virginia citizens as possible.

But most importantly, contact Republican George Allen and tell him change his position on the Second Amendment.

There’s not a moment to lose.

Please act today!

    For Freedom,
    
    Dudley Brown
    Executive Vice President

P.S. Republican U.S. Senate candidate George Allen won’t answer the National Association for Gun Rights candidate survey -- and his long history of supporting left-wing gun control schemes is crystal clear.

Gun owners must demand answers.

It’s vital that you contact George Allen at once and demand he apologize to gun owners for his gun-grabbing past, and answer the National Association for Gun Rights candidate survey 100% pro-gun immediately!
