GOA-PVF Supports Doug Hoffman in New York Special Election October 27, 2009
Dear Friend of the Second Amendment,
You may have heard about a special Congressional election taking place next week in upstate New York. The race features a Nancy Pelosi Democrat and a Republican with long-standing ties to ACORN against a genuine pro-gun leader named Doug Hoffman.
Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund is proud to endorse Doug Hoffman in this race.
Doug Hoffman is a 100% gun rights supporter who will be a leader in the battle to defend the Second Amendment.
Doug Hoffman Mr. Hoffman believes that laws restricting your right to keep and bear arms is no way to fight crime.
As the next Congressman from New York, Doug Hoffman will fight hard against the gun control schemes coming out of Nancy Pelosis office and he will work to repeal unconstitutional gun laws on the books.
One of Doug Hoffmans opponents, Bill Owens, will be just another YES vote for radical anti-gun House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He refuses to let voters know where he stands on specific gun control issues, which enables him to play it both ways on the Second Amendment.
Politicians like this are slowly destroying our right to keep and bear arms.
Mr. Hoffmans other opponent, Dede Scozzafava, voted in 1999 for the kind of study of gun safety that is so often used by the gun prohibitionists as a backdoor to greater and more intrusive regulation. Attacking gun owners rights under the cover of safety is a favorite tactic of the anti-Second Amendment crowd and she voted for it.
She also voted in 1999 to stick gun owners with a burdensome reporting requirement when a gun is stolen. Under that law, the victim of a gun theft can be criminally prosecuted if the theft is not reported quickly enough to suit the authorities. This type of law turns the victim into a criminal.
These are not the votes of a 100% defender of the Second Amendment.
In addition, this candidate has close ties to the radical anti-gun group ACORN. The current leader of ACORN, Bertha Lewis, also co-founded New Yorks Working Families Partya party that supported Scozzafava in past elections.
The right choice for gun owners in this election is clearly Doug Hoffman.
One recent poll shows Mr. Hoffman with a slight lead in the three-way race, but the election is all about voter turnout. In the last few days of the campaign Doug needs our financial help to reach out to as many pro-Second Amendment voters as possible.
Your contribution of $25, $50, $100, or more at http://www.doughoffmanforcongress.com will help Doug Hoffman stay on the air, speaking directly to voters.
Your support of Doug Hoffman will send a strong message to Congressional leaders of both parties in Washingtona message that says NO to Nancy Pelosis gun control agenda and NO to more business-as-usual politicians.
We need representatives who are willing to rock the boat on Capitol Hill, and Doug Hoffman is just that type of candidate. Please go to http://www.doughoffmanforcongress.com right away!
Sincerely, Tim Macy Vice-Chairman
I don't believe this is true, but it's a possibility: Suppose Gingrich knew he'd enrage the conservative bloc? Suppose he kept poking us with more and more outlandish comments on purpose? He's not up for any elections. It would have been brilliant strategery.
I have read polls showing Hoffman leading by a good margin. IF HE WINS, it could be a watershed victory, proving that indeed we don't have to put up with no more Rinos!. It could lead to an insurgency in the RP, such as happened after 1964. OR, it could lead to a new national party - the Conservative Party! In a three-way race, what would Rinos have to offer?
Well, maybe I am over-optimistic, but "could happen, ya know?"
You missed Al D’Amato.
Goodness, I'm not following Newt's stupidity. The very idea! I have more than enough of my own stupidity to follow, thank you very much. No, I was joking with the poster who thought Hoffman was running against Jon Corzine in New Jersey.
Well, he sure poked us. That’s a fact. Whether he meant to or not, will remain forever in his fevered brain.
About as brilliant as smooching with The Wicked Witch of the West on the couch and drinking the AGW koolaid.
kitty was on about another poster who came out saying that he hopes hoffman beats Corzine.
Not sure if you are following Newts line or you just got ot plain wrong.
Does Hoffman have a pro-gun voting record?
I don’t know, but I did find this:
“As an NRA member, Doug believes the Second Amendment is far more vital to our nation than just protecting the recreational activities of hunters and target shooters. The Founding Fathers thought these rights so vital to a free country that they specifically created the Bill of Rights. They did not want to leave any doubt as to what tools must be available to the lone citizen.
The first amendment’s protection of the ability to question government and assuring the capacity of citizens to communicate to one another.
The fifth amendment’s designation of property rights as the clear demarcation line between the individual and the community.
The fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh’s establishing the due process by which the judiciary and law enforcement officers must adhere to in applying the law to individuals.
But the second amendment was included to give bite to the other protections outlined in the Bill of Rights. Without it, all other amendments are nothing more than talk.
Doug Hoffman believes citizens in all states plus the District of Columbia should have a Right to Carry with a CCW permits, a right that is now enjoyed in over 38 states.
Doug Hoffman opposes any federal ban or registration on the types and cosmetics of rifles that law-abiding American citizens can own.”
And Michelle Bachmann - the first incumbent Republican to endorse Hoffman. She did so about 6-8 hours before Sarah. The GOP women are gutsy.
I guess the Haters have spoken.
Do I really need /s?
That list isn’t complete - many more, I have heard, came out to endorse Hoffman - Mark Levin is one. This election we are separating the wheat from the chaff! The RINO’S deceitful ways are being exposed.
How can he - he hasn’t held public office! He’s not a politician.
no ive been watching New pal around with his dem friends
