    Besides Fred Thompson, are there any pro-second amendment candidates? Seems like all the other candidates will be disastrous to the right to own firearms if they are elected...even the "Republican" candidates.

    my personal choice is Paul for a number of reasons, including:

    "Ron Paul has represented areas near Houston, Texas for nearly 20 years in the U.S. House of Representatives. He has the reputation of the paramount defender of the Constitution and seeks to follow it in casting every one of his votes.

    Ron Paul has been a leader in the fight to defend and restore the Second Amendment. He has sponsored legislation to repeal the following:

    * the Brady law;
    * the requirement to lock up your safety (guns);
    * the law permitting the US to be part of the UN (which, among other attacks on American freedoms, seeks to ban privately transfered firearms);
    * participation in UNESCO -- which has been used to dumb down US education standards;
    * the federal prohibition on importation of guns on a sporting basis test;
    * federal prohibitions on any pilot wishing to carry a handgun to and in his cockpit; and,
    * the so-called "assault weapons" ban (prior to its sunsetting in 2004).

    Paul also has sponsored legislation requiring states to treat the concealed carry permit of one state the same as they do that state's driver's license.

    Paul has viewed his opposition to a national ID card as a protection for gun owners. A national ID card would most likely identify the bearer as a gun owner, among other things of interest to government officials.

    Paul acknowledges his underdog status in the 2008 presidential race. He argues that he is offering himself as a pro-Second Amendment alternative to the candidates who have initially led the field, none of whom have a pro-gun record. Paul hopes to use his long experience in raising grassroots support to gain sufficient funding to become the pro-gun alternative to the current leaders of the field. "
