McCain has helped on this issue. He's one of the co-signers on a congressional amicus brief arguing strongly for an individual rights interpretation in the Heller case. This is the brief that VP Cheney cosigned in his capacity as President of the Senate.

I know McCain has often been on the wrong side of gun rights, but, credit where credit's due, he's on the right side this time. Note: Neither Clinton or Obama signed on - despite both claiming to "support the 2nd amendment, but..."

I believe McCain has a C+ rating from the NRA. Both Obama and Clinton received well deserved Fs.

I’m voting for the C+.

“Note: Neither Clinton or Obama signed on -”

I wonder how many secret service people carrying firearms are around them every day to protect them....
