As we content ourselves with the never-dull antics surrounding the large variety of candidates for president, we must be mindful of the policies each candidate represents and envision what they would do as president if they should win the highest office in the land.
The Gun Owners of America, the Second Amendment civil rights organization, has proudly endorsed Texas Senator and Republican contender Ted Cruz.
While few could argue with Cruz’s conservative credentials, the fact is that there are several within the Republican field who have been strong supporters of the Second Amendment. However, as the Gun Owners of America (GOA) have highlighted, few can boast of their defense of the right that protects all others like Sen. Cruz could.
The statement issued by the organization highlights Sen. Cruz’s commitment to the American people and the Second Amendment and notes that Cruz has promised to remove the U.S. as a signatory nation to the U.N.’s anti-gun Arms Trade Treaty which would place the Second Amendment in the hands of the United Nations.
Cruz has also promised to repeal all unlawful anti-Second Amendment executive orders issued by President Obama in violation of our Constitution.
Cruz has also sought to bring freedom to all fifty states by cosponsoring a bill that would allow concealed carry reciprocity in all fifty states for permitted holders (S. 498).
The GOA touted their decision and explained, (emphasis added)
It’s obvious that Senator Cruz follows the Constitution, not a political party.
It was Senator Cruz who led the filibuster fight in 2013 against funding the anti-gun ObamaCare law, which will facilitate the disarmament of millions of gun owners once the law is fully implemented.
While there are many problems with ObamaCare, Cruz recognizes how computerizing the medical records of millions of gun owners will allow the federal government to troll those names and add millions of honest gun owners to the NICS system — in the same way that the Obama Administration is currently using medical information to disarm military veterans, and proposing to do the same with senior citizens.
Ted Cruz has promised to sign a bill to completely repeal ObamaCare as President. To that end, he has already introduced S. 339, which would repeal the health care law “as if such Act had not been enacted.”
Finally… one of Ted Cruz’ chief concerns as Senator has been the creeping “judicial tyranny” in our nation. We need a President who is going to rein in the courts by appointing judges who reject the notion that our Constitution is a “living and breathing” document that can be twisted to support any crackpot agenda that anti-gun liberals like Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi advocate.
We need a stalwart defender of the Second Amendment in the White House, and Ted Cruz will help shoulder the burden of fighting against the gun grabbers dedicated to eviscerating the Second Amendment.
Long gone are the days of frontal attacks on our Second Amendment rights. The current atmosphere of anti-Second Amendment zealotry manifests not as a dedicated effort to enact federal legislation, but to undermine our constitutional principles by redefining the Second Amendment, reframing the discussion as a function of mental health necessities and by fighting state-by-state using Michael Bloomberg’s war-chest.
In short, a true patriot must not be content with opposing bad legislation when it comes across his desk; a true advocate of the Second Amendment must be willing to expand this freedom and undo damages done by liberals who have capitalized on fear and manipulation to advance anti-gun efforts in the U.S.
In this view, Sen. Cruz is definitely the most-capable patriot in the Republican stable and a good choice for the coveted endorsement.
