If the Second Amendment is your primary issue, then Bob Owens of Bearing Arms and 2nd Amendment Supporters should be a primary source of advice regarding which politicians to support. Owens continues to make a strong case for Cruz:
It’s frankly odd to see so many people rallying around a big government-supporting crony capitalist like Donald Trump in the mistaken belief that he is the “anti-establishment candidate.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Trump is the face of everything people claim that they hate about politics in America, even bragging in debates about how he paid off candidates in both parties to get what he wanted in a naked proclamation of his belief in the corruption of “business as usual.”
Ted Cruz, on the other hand, is hated by his peers in the establishment Senate GOP for refusing to be a “go along to get along” supporter of big government GOP policies.
The difference between these candidates will be reflected in the multiple Supreme Court nominations they would almost certainly be in a position to make as president, which in turn will determine whether constitutional protection of our fundamental right to bear arms is passed along to the next generation.
No one knows who Trump would appoint, but we do know three things: 1) he has no core conservative principles, 2) he is very open to making deals with the leftist Democrats that he has given so much money to over the years, and 3) he is highly unlikely to defeat the anti-gun rights radical Shrillary in the general election anyway.
In contrast, trends indicate that Cruz would beat Shrillary:
No one doubts that Cruz would make appropriate appointments:
Cruz is hands down the most qualified candidate to ever consider nominating a justice for the Supreme Court, having served a law clerk for Mike Luttig (a very influential textualist judge often compared to Justice Scalia) and Chief Justice William Rehnquist. He also authored 73 briefs and argued nine cases before the Supreme Court, all of those cases pushing for the textualist/constructionist views. He is also the author of the amicus brief 31 states signed on to in the landmark Heller case protecting our Second Amendment rights. …
As a supporter of the right to bear arms, Ted Cruz is clearly our best option.
The Second Amendment is not of importance only to hunters and firearms enthusiasts. As the Founding Fathers were explicitly aware, all of our liberties rest on our ability to physically defend ourselves from tyranny when the need arises. Vote accordingly.
