Important Information for the Special Congressional Election on April 11 4/5/06 2:02 PM NRA-ILA
This Tuesday, April 11th, there is a special election to nominate candidates to succeed former Representative Duke Cunningham in the 50th congressional district of California. We have been receiving inquiries about the position on gun control by candidates in this open seat race. As you consider which candidate to support in this special election on April 11, we hope that this information about some of the candidates will be timely and helpful to your decision and voting.
NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION INSTITUTE FOR LEGISLATIVE ACTION
While the National Rifle Association has not endorsed a candidate in this special election, we wish to provide you with some important information about some of the candidates.
Former state Assemblyman Howard Kaloogian and current state Senator Bill Morrow have perfect pro-gun voting records in Sacramento.
By contrast, during his three-term tenure in Congress, Brian Bilbray voted against the NRA position ten different times on various bills and amendments, including against repealing the Clinton gun ban on semi-automatic firearms and for legislation to end gun shows as we know them. As he did in 1994, Bilbray has again this year provided pro-gun responses to our federal candidate questionnaire.
Based on his voting record in Congress, Bilbray was rated a "F" by the NRA in 2000, 1998 and 1996. In addition, along with several anti-gun Members of Congress including Senator Dianne Feinstein, Bilbray attended a White House Rose Garden rally on March 16, 2000 at which Bill Clinton pushed for federal legislation to regulate gun shows out of existence. Bilbray was quoted as saying that "reasonable gun control is not a threat to our constitutional rights."
Morrow is a warrior and has never shied from confrontation in the battle with the Dems/libs. He has "sand behind the belt" - if you're military you know that means he has a long record of fighting in the trenches; he knows not only how to fight but he takes the fight to the enemy. He is highly regarded as a master strategist-go-to person on how to get the job done, not a loud-mouth politician who likes to hear his own voice, "all sound and fury signifying nothing..." aka Howard Kaloogian
I feel it is very important, as does Hugh Hewitt, that Morrow has served. We are right in the middle of one fight and will probably be in one with Iran in the next few years. That he has served gives him a greater perspective on the consequences of voting to send men into harms way. It also shows his discipline and respect for authority over him.
Well then, maybe Morrow has what it takes.
There are only two days left, but I would suggest that you concentrate on selling Morrow and quit trashing Kaloogian. There are other GOP candidates Kaloogian supporters can go to, but presumably you want those votes for your guy, not one of them.
You have a point there. Thankfully Senator Morrow rises above all the trashing of him and his family by Kaloogian and someof the others in the race. 'Nuff said... on to victory!
If leadership skills are important, Morrow not Kaloogian was able to successfully carry legislation through the legislature. Howard could not.
I am glad you hold both sides, our and theirs to the same standard. I wish the Dems. would do the same.
If you want to change public opinion against the liberal agenda, you need to offer constructive alternatives, not just do the SAME THING that they are doing in Congress day after day because they don't have an agenda. You can't lead or change public opinion if all you offer is hits against your opponents the way the Dems have been doing. You need an agenda, a vision, the ability to build a consensus within your own party, and the presentation to sell it to the American Public. Generally speaking, the indiffernt 40% of Americans in the center are not turned off as much by our stand on an issue (be it pro or anti abortion), they are turned off by the messenger. Anyone who gets up on a soap box and starts throwing bombs will quickly be marganilized. The moral indiference effecting our nation has to be factored into the equation and addressed appropriately. Howard doesn't have a clue. 14 years of serving in Sacramento has given Bill the experience and temperment to make him a statesman. Howard needs to find another cause.
Roach, Kaloogian, Bilbray, Roach and the wacko liberal are all sending out hit pieces against each other. Morrow is not.
You and I will have to agree to disagree, sir.
There is a place for constructive alternatives, and a place for powerful rhetoric. The GOP has always been short on the latter.
Why don't you stop trashing Kaloogian and focus on why your guy is good?
I believe there are two Pastor Chucks. One is a 24-karat jerk who tells Christians to drop out of politics. I hope he isn't the one you mean.
I think I'm referring to Chuck Baldwin, whose commentaries are called the "Chuck Wagon" and should be called "Upchuck Wagon." If so, it's obviously not your guy. Hope I'm right.
Dear California Patriot and Dr. Gary: It is Pastor Chuck Smith the founder of Calvary Chapel (Costa Mesa - the original church) who has endorsed Senator Bill Morrow. I don't know this Chuck Baldwin you mention but Pastor Chuck Smith is a humble, gracious servant of our Lord.
And, more importantly, he presumably doesn't tell Christians to drop out of politics. The other Pastor Chuck does.
