Fred Thompson Hits Homerun in NRA Speech; Giuliani to Try and Defend Anti-2nd Amendment Record
Blogs For Fred Thompson ^ | September 21, 2007 | brkcmo

Posted on 09/21/2007 8:17:45 AM PDT by blogsforthompson.com

Fred Thompson hit a homerun in his speech to the NRA! In response to a question after his remarks, Fred said he believed the 2nd Amendment meant the same thing in New York City as it does in Tennessee. He further added that it is more than a coincidence that the places with the highest crime rates often have the most restrictions on gun rights.

He also said during his speech, about his wife, Jeri, "I don't know, but i think Jeri would make a much better First Lady than Bill Clinton!" The NRA crowd loved it!

Fred's position on the 2nd Amendment is in obvious contrast to Rudy Giuliani, who will speak to the NRA shortly. It will be interesting to see how Giuliani tries to defend his past positions on gun control and his statements on the NRA, as evidenced in these clips.........

Mark my words. As soon as roooty speaks at the NRA, we’ll see another hit piece, maybe several, by his attack dogs...like Will, Novak, etc. to divert the negative attention from him.

Some of the best entertainment around is watching a liberal trying to misinterpret the 2nd Amendment to mean that gun ownership only pertains to outdated to miltias. lol

As soon as he goes to speak the audience should turn their back on him.

Give it up, Mr. Mayor. Your track record on firearms ownership is indefensible.

Missed Fred. Watching Rooty now. Giuliani is a lying liberal scumbag. Out of his lips:

Guns don't kill, people kill.

This man is a shameless, pandering a-hole!

to divert the negative attention from him.

"Hit piece"? Hmm....looks you've a;ready started that ball rolling.

In the interest of fairness and decorum, how about you let him give the speech before predicting the "negative attention"?

Does that hurt too much?

The point is, this belief by Rooty is brand new.

Giuliani has been a gun grabber his entire career.

Wake up! He wants your guns!

What are you talking about? Who started what ball rolling where? Why should anyone refrain from making predictions to please you?

You may be a fan of the gungrabbing former mayor of NYC, but in case you haven’t noticed, he’s not so popular around here.

I agree.
Why the NRA is allowing itself to be used as a forum to resuscitate Rudy's unconstitutional record is beyond me.

Are you stark raving mad? Fred has top ratings by all of those groups and has always been a strong 2nd amendment supporter. Go do your homework before you spew more lies.

No less than Bill Clinton credited NRA with the defeat of Algore’s campaign. The groups you mention are all fine but you’ll find that the NRA does the heavy lifting for the RKBA.

And since when does Thompson care about the 2nd amendment, or even the Constitution? It seems like something he just now started talking about since he’s decided he wants the GOP nomination.

Have you followed any part of his senate career or noted that he was the lone holdout vote in one (in)famous gun control bill, which restricted fire arms near school?

His record, on strict gun control issues (not side or by issues that are not directly linked to guns) is very good.

Now THAT’S a first lady I could stand seeing in the news everyday!

If we’re to judge a Presidential candidate by the caliber spouse they’ve been able to snag ...

Fred Thompson A+,
G.W. Bush A+,
Bill Clinton F-,
Hillary Clinton D (Bill might be a fun guy to watch a ballgame with at Hooters),
Dennis Kucinich A (how this elf landed that broad, I’ll never understand)

I’m not knowledgeable about Mrs. Giuliani, Mrs. Paul, Mrs. Romney, or any of the other Democrats wives to give a grade.

"The NRA is no longer the nations standard bearer for preserving the right to bear arms."

Ain't that the truth. They've been a huge disappointment in recent years.

"Let’s see how well Thompson is received by a pro-2nd amendment group like the Gun Owners of America or..."

I think the GOA is leaning toward supporting Ron Paul, or so I've read. Don't know about the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

In any case, aside from McCain/Feingold (even he knows he messed up big time when he voted for CFR), I don't see anything in Thompson's record that leads me to believe he's the least bit hostile toward the 2nd Amendment or the Constitution in general. But if you know of anything to the contrary, by all means post it or point me to it. While I am leaning toward Thompson at the moment, I not 100% committed to anyone.

And that right there sums up why the GOA does not have the political clout of the NRA and wil lnot play a serious role in the nomination and general election despite the fact that it's views are more conservative and more protective of the 2nd Amendment.

PS --

I thought Giuliani was mechanistic and perfunctory, and doesn't share the concerns that most conservatives have for the 2nd Amendment.
