Getting Guliani's attention


August 12, 2007, 05:40 PM
According to the Weekly Standard magazine, a respected conservative weekly, Guliani remains the frontrunner and is the likely candidate to receive the Republican nomination. ( personally like Fred Thompson but wonder what is going on with him.) We know that Mayor Rudy is not pro 2A, and it is unlikely that anyone will change his mind, and we wouldn't believe him if he said he had changed his mind. I think the most practical path for anyone who understands the danger to gun owners if Hilary, Barack or Edwards becomes president is to find a way to convince Guliani that only by promising gun owners that he will respect the 2A and not seek any Federal gun control measures, will he have a chance of getting our votes. That would be better than a Democrat in the White House, even if we still would not have a President willing to fight FOR gun owners.

As far as Fred Thompson is concerned, it is my understanding that he cannot get into the race until all the Law & Order reruns are finished for the summer. His opponents could demand equal time.

Now, the Mayor, right now Rudy is enjoying a comfortable lead, McCain is in free fall, Mit is too far back and Thompson is not in yet. After the nomination is selected and if Rudy is selected, then you will see him going after the gun vote. This also depends on how close the race is with hillery.

You will NEVER be able to trust Rudi. As much as I dislike her, and B.J., I would rather see the Hildabeast as POS. At least with her you know what you are getting. Rudi has more positions than Jenna Jameson.

yep, as a NY'er used to imitation republicans, you're better off with a democrat than a fake republican. With a democrat if they propose gun control, the republicans will automatically oppose it, and you will get some dems who side with you based on their districts. With a fake republican, they propose gun control, the Dems are all happy to jump aboard, and many republicans go along for party loyalty. Better the enemy you know.

My only hope is that Rudi's administration will be so full of scandals and preventing another "9-11" that he wouldn’t have the time or dare touch the subject of more gun control. Either way, he will not be getting my vote in the primary.

JamesM, I suspect that his way of "preventing" an attack would be to finish gutting the Bill of Rights. As for Hillary v. Rudy, I too have to go with Hillary--if not a President who will support our rights (which we wouldn't have either way), Hillary would at least inspire a hostile Congress; they might at least defend our rights by accident, if not by design.

regardless-the next election will begin the fall of this nation. There is no more lesser of the evils. Flame on..

Politically, the cream no longer rises to the top. Maybe there just isn't any cream left. Regardless of who wins in '08 the very best we can hope for is no further loss of our rights. Sooner or later we will go the way of England. The best I can hope for is that I won't live to see it. There are advantages to getting old:(.

Cream may not rise to the top, but s**t floats. I agree 100%

Nice shack, BTW

IMHO, things are just going to get worse until we get back to having "statesmen". People who are in office for the good of the country, not to line their pockets with money that doesn't belong to them.

I agree, Gulianis position on the 2nd ammendment is crap. Even if its him against Billary, I will still write in Ron Paul, hell!!, even a democrat like Bill Richardson has a better 2nd ammendment record than Guliani

All the stupid conspiracy theories aside, I think what needs to be done is you pound his office with questions and email saying, "The 2A is not about hunting, I do not care what you think about hunting. What will you do to protect my right to my 2A rights?"

Confronting the weakest 2A candidates will also force the stronger ones to reinforce their views or to try to top the weaker candidate as being more pro-2A.

I think it's great you are being pro-active in this. It's a good CYA with a viable candidate instead of merely saying, "I'm ONLY voting for _____"

even a democrat like Bill Richardson has a better 2nd ammendment record than Guliani

Incorrect, he did not stand up for 2A during the Democratic debate on CNN/YouTube.

Guliani remains the frontrunner

The press is really driving me crazy with this nonsense. How can he be a frontrunner if NOBODY HAS EVEN VOTED YET!?!? I think he's being shoved down our gullets by a liberal media who sees him as the most authoritarian and left-wing of the current GOP pool.

As far as getting him to make promises, I doubt they'd mean squat even if he was willing to make them. He's a political sociopath. I *WILL* vote for Hillary over him. If I'm going to be attacked, I want the attack coming at me from the front, not from behind.
