Skip to comments.Why hasn't Rick Perry filled out his Second Amendment Questionnaire
Posted on 12/22/2011 2:55:46 PM PST by ASA Vet
Gun Owners of America has sent a Second Amendment Questionnaire to every Presidential candidate for this election year. We've gotten them back from several of the candidates -- even Newt Gingrich, after I met with him earlier this month to ask why he hadn't sent his back. But we haven't received one from either Rick Perry or Mitt Romney.
The fact that Romney is not getting his questionnaire back is understandable, since he has been all over the map on gun ownership. Recently he's sounding pro-gun, but his history is anything but that. Rick Perry, however, has a solid record on the Second Amendment as Governor of Texas, so why isnt he getting his questionnaire back to GOA? I have to believe this is a campaign staff decision, which is a bad decision at best. Perry already has a good record, so why not fill it out so we can know where he stands on issues specific to the presidency?
Newt Gingrich was far from perfect on the Second Amendment when he was Speaker of the House, and he still falters on background checks, but at least he gave GOA his answers and signed our questionnaire. You have to respect him for that.
I have personally had contact four times with Perry staff who all said they would get it done and back to GOA right away, but so far it's been lip service and no questionnaire.
Bottom line -- come on Rick, send GOA a completed and signed questionnaire so gun owners across the country can get a more complete picture of your views.
Please encourage Rick Perry to return the GOA questionnaire by calling
Questionnaires sent to candidates really irritate me.
Is someone can lie through a job application, a candidate can lie through a questionnaire.
Ron Paul org, essentially. Why would Perry need to respond?
He was too busy blasting coyotes to bother with it.
Because he's already pissed off enough Conservatives with his La Raza bullcrap.
There is NO QUESTION that Rick has always supported both the 2nd Amendment and the 10th Amendment of the Constitution...............
Not necessary to have him fill our a “form”.
I’d like to know if there is some specific question they need an answer to? I take a dim view to questionnaires/signed pledges for candidates as well.
What BS. I hate the organizations that spout about this. While I am not a supporter of Perry, I can fathom a guess that his stance is slightly more pro gun than Mitt.
hey have been described by Congressman Ron Paul as “The only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington.” This quote from Paul has long been displayed front and center on the homepage of the Gun Owners of America website, and Paul was the only 2008 Presidential candidate to gain an A+ rating from Gun Owners of America.
NOW WHY WOULD PERRY GIVE THIS BUNCH A SECOND THOUGHT.
Their members spend their time smearing him. So who cares what they send out.
They belong to skeletor.
They’re ALL “pro-Second Amendment” - until they get into the White House.
OMG!!!! HE LIKES THE ‘ASSAULT RIFLES’!!!! AND SUPPRESSORS!!!
Funny that Macy guy is one of their listed heads. So he sent out an e-mail to himself. Too Funny.
Perry has been very pro 2A—recently he signed the bill that stopped employers from prohibiting CHL holders from keeping handguns in their cars, and Perry supported the bill that would have allowed CHL holders to carry at universities (Straus, the liberal Texas speaker of the house, never let the bill come up for vote in the Texas House, even though it passed all committees and the Senate).
Anita hasn’t had a chance to look it over, yet.
Perry probably now pro-Second Amendment....before he was anti-2d Amendment
Kinda like when he is now pro- 10th Amendment...before he was anti-10th Amendment with his NAFTA Superhighway nonsense
Please provide proof n00bie.
2nd Amendment? Rick’s still trying to get his head around the Preamble.
I don’t know why he wouldn’t fill out the form. It’s not hard to do, and I think it would help him. I’m not worried about his answers, but there’s no harm in filling out this form.
Why does the GOA deserve to get their questionnaire back?
