My concerns about Kerry

Post by Tombstone »

Two decades of opposing gun owners` rights in the U.S. Senate make John

Kerry the most anti-gun presidential nominee in U.S. history!

FACT: Kerry has voted nine times in favor of banning semi-auto firearms.

FACT: Kerry has voted for a Ted Kennedy amendment to ban most rifle

ammunition, including the most common rounds used by hunters and target


FACT: Kerry has voted to close off hundreds of thousands of acres to hunting

in the California Mojave Desert.

FACT: Kerry has voted to hold America`s firearms makers - not violent

criminals - responsible for crimes commited with firearms.

FACT: Kerry was one of only 18 Senators who opposed the Firearms Owners`

Protection Act, which ended alarming abuses being committed under the 1968

Gun Control Act.

FACT: Kerry has voted to allow unlimited warrant-less inspections of FFL


FACT: Kerry has voted to criminalize legal sales between private citizens at

gun shows.

FACT: Kerry has voted against increasing mandatory minimum and maximum

penalties for the illegal transfer or use of a firearm. But he voted to

impose penalties of a year in prison and a $10,000 fine on an adult if a

juvenile steals a gun from him and then displays it in a public place.

FACT: Kerry has voted to force many small firearms dealers out of business,

which would have impacted both the availability and price of guns,

particularly in rural areas.

FACT: Kerry has voted 11 times to force law-abiding citizens to wait to

exercise their Second Amendment rights. He voted to keep the federal waiting

period after the National Instant Check System was in place.

FACT: Kerry voted twice to eliminate the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

FACT: Kerry commended commended an anti-gun group`s demonstration in

Washington that called for gun owner licensing, gun registration and other

restrictions on law-abiding gun owners.

FACT: If elected president, Kerry will pack the U.S. Supreme Court with

Feinstein/Schumer/ Kennedy-selected anti-gun activists who believe you have

no right to own any firearm.
