Candidate Questions

So, I took a page out of David Codrea's book and e mailed his list of pertinent 2nd Amendment questions to Mark Walberg, who is running for Congress against Mark Schauer, here in Michigan. I will post his answers when I get them. I'll also post the questions, which came from David Codrea, so that you can send them to your candidates.

1. Do you believe that the Constitution is the "supreme law of the land" and that the Bill of Rights acknowledges our birthrights?

2. If so, should these rights be proactively protected from infringement by all levels of government, including city, county and state?

3. Please give some examples of gun laws you consider constitutional.

4. Please give some examples of gun laws you consider unconstitutional.

5. Does the right to bear arms include the right for any peaceable citizen to carry them concealed without a permit, as in Vermont?

6. Do you believe that Americans have a right to own, use and carry weapons of military pattern, and will you use the prestige of elected office to publicly promote that right?

7. Do you support or oppose registration of weapons? Why?

8. Do you support or oppose licensing requirements to own or carry firearms?

9. What specific gun laws will you work to get repealed?

10. If elected, will you back your words of support for firearms rights up with consistent actions? How?

Thanks to David Codrea for thinking this up. It's about time we started finding out what the people running for office really think.
