Jamie Radtke on Gun Control

 


Oppose the Clinton-Feinstein gun ban

U.S. Senate candidate Jamie Radtke has questioned the National Rifle Association's endorsement of former senator and Governor George Allen. "I know all too many gun enthusiasts who would dispute this endorsement," Radtke told the Richmond Republican Examiner.

This Thursday the NRA endorsed Allen for the U.S. Senate citing his "stellar record of defending the Second Amendment" and protecting the Constitutional right to bear arms. Radtke disputes this saying she has been to numerous gun shows all over the Commonwealth and the sentiment is overwhelming: "we don't need six more years of George Allen."

"Something is wrong when you have to lobby George Allen to make sure he votes right on guns," Radtke told the Examiner. "He caved in in an election year and declared his support for the Clinton-Feinstein gun ban. Need I say more?"

Second Amendment avoids infringement on civil liberties

Radtke said she is concerned with what she called the government's "infringement on civil liberties," adding: "The best defense for Americans is the Second Amendment [the right to bear arms]."

Defend our second amendment rights

I believe that the drafters of the Bill of Rights showed wisdom by guaranteeing the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was intended to assure the preservation of a free society and the ability of the people to protect themselves, their country and their rights. As your United States Senator I will defend our second amendment rights.
