It is very important for SC gun owners to turn out on Tuesday, June 27th to vote for Andre Bauer in the Republican Primary run-off election for Lt. Governor. Andre is A+ rated and endorsed by NRA-PVF. Lt. Governor Bauer has been a reliable pro-gun leader over the last decade. He served in both the House and Senate and has led the way on many of our NRA and GOSC backed initiatives. We need him to continue as Lt. Governor and that can only happen with your help and your vote on Tuesday.

NRA - PVF Endorses
Lieutenant Governor Andre` Bauer
for Re-Election in South Carolina

Fairfax, VA-The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has endorsed Lieutenant Governor Andre` Bauer in South Carolina’s runoff election Tuesday, June 27, 2006.

"Law-abiding gun owners in South Carolina have a true friend in Lieutenant Governor Andre` Bauer," said Chris W. Cox, Executive Director and Chairman of NRA - Political Victory Fund (PVF). "We are pleased to endorse him for re-election, because we know he will continue to protect the Second Amendment and help preserve the shooting sports for future generations."

Andre` Bauer received an A rating and NRA endorsement in his first election to South Carolina’s State House in 1996 and A+ ratings for both his election to the State Senate in 1999 and his election as Lieutenant Governor in 2002

While in the senate, he worked with NRA to pass legislation protecting shooting ranges, preempting reckless lawsuits, and reforming Right-To-Carry laws. As Lieutenant Governor, he supported NRA’s successful effort to repeal the one-handgun-a-month restriction, as well as the recently passed “Emergency Powers Protection Act” and “Castle Doctrine” bills. Lieutenant Governor Bauer has also pledged to continue his support for NRA efforts to improve South Carolina’s Right-To-Carry reciprocity.

Cox continued, "As one of South Carolina's finest public servants, Andre` Bauer has been a steadfast advocate for gun owners, hunters, and the Second Amendment. His pro-gun stance has earned him another A+ rating and endorsement of NRA-PVF."

“We ask every gun owner to vote for Andre Bauer June 27th,” concluded Cox. “South Carolinians value their right to own firearms, and Andre` Bauer is the right man to represent them.”

He may be good for the NRA but the man is dangerous. Has a hard time restraining his need for speed. He's been pulled over for speeding at asinine levels over the limit and let go by the highway patrol. If he isn't stopped he will kill someone. He's been lucky so far.

He may be good in the NRA's eyes but he frankly does nothing positive for the image of RKBA advocates because of his misbehavior.

Andre has done an outstanding job as Lt. Governor. No one has or will criticize the work he's done or the progress he's made. By every measurable standard, he has exceeded expectations. And it's not just on the gun issue.

With Andre as presiding officer of the Senate legislative log jams have become a thing of the past. He has held the line on tax increases by ruling them out of order (and his rulings have never been overturned). And he has virtually eliminated protracted filibusters by requiring Senators to stick with the topic being considered.

Andre has taken on responsibility for the state's office on aging and has done remarkable things. He has been an effective and outspoken advocate for the elderly. Under his leadership more medical students are specializing in geriatirics (a specialty that had been shrinking rapidly). And thanks to his expansion of the omsbudsman's program, the elderly now have a voice that was sorely lacking.

I could go on and on, but my point is made.

Has Andre made a few mistakes in his personal life? Sure, and he's admitted as much (and appologized for those mistakes). I believe in redemption and I think he deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Andre Bauer is by far the best candidate and most qualified candidate. Add to that his unimpeachable pro-gun credentials, and you have the perfect guy for the job.

Mr. Brauer would do well to force a vote for H3110, the SC Reciprocity bill, as passed by the House.

The CWP recognition bill (H.3110) passed in the Senate last year with Andre's help. Unfortunately, it was amended on the floor and morphed into something even worse than we have now.

A conference committee was appointed and a workable agreement could not be reached. Rather than advance H.3110 with the BAD amendments, we chose to let it die.

We already have dozens of sponsors in place to reintroduce a good recognition bill when the new session starts in January. We think the chances are better for recognition in part because the Senate will be up for re-election at the end of next session.
