07/06/04 - Kerry announces John Edwards to be his Vice Presidential running mate. Edwards, a North Carolina Democrat, is also rated by the National Review to be more liberal than Ted Kennedy. Smart enough not to vote for every gun control measure, he still took time off from the campaign trail on March 2, 2004 to vote for some of the gun control measures. Those that he did not vote for, he did not vote against. He can tell his constituents that he did not vote against their gun rights and he can tell the Democratic party and the trial lawyer lobby that he did not vote against them. See the Voting Record page for more information on John Edwards. In addition, we are starting an Edwards Link Section.

04/22/04 - John Kerry announces a new commitment to the environment, fishing and hunting. Here is a link to the press release (copied). Kerry's 'Sportsmen for Kerry' is no longer a one page 'community' where, like the other communities, Kerry attempts to portrait himself as a everything to everyone. It is now a set of web pages that tries to make further use of the Iowa hunting trip from the fall and rehashes the June 6, 2003 'Hunter, Dreamer, Realist' article in the Washington Post. In the new pages, you also have an opportunity to get on his mailing list and send him money.

The only real meat of all of the pages is a sidebar tabbed as 'Record'. In the sidebar, Kerry gives you the following detail on his beliefs:

 

bullet

Kerry is a lifelong hunter and will defend hunting rights.

bullet

Kerry supports the Brady Bill and mandatory background checks.

bullet

Kerry strongly supports the Second Amendment and gun owner rights.

bullet

Kerry worked with law enforcement to ban military assault weapons.

bullet

Kerry wants to close the 'Gun Loophole'.

 

Consider:

  1. Take note that three of the five bullets he presents are all about gun control and not rights although the word 'rights' is used twice and 'control' not at all. I am assuming that the 'Gun Loophole' is actually the 'Gun Show Loophole'.

  2. Dropped in the middle is the Second Amendment. I find this more than ironic given the other bullets and his voting record.

  3. His speech was delivered in Louisiana. The concept of 'defending hunting rights' seems to come from an appeal to rural economies as much as anything else.

  4. Automatic Military Assault Weapons have been regulated since the National Firearms Act in 1934. Clinton's Assault Weapons Ban had nothing to do with any firearm the military is currently using.

  5. The 'Gun Show Loophole' is all about disallowing private sales of firearms. There is no loophole for gun sales at shows by FFL holders.

 

There is only one thing John Kerry missed out of the Democratic playbook: gun safety. See 'Winning the Gun Vote' for a complete look at their strategy of deception.

 

  In 2000, Gore from Tennessee could not carry any southern states. That fact is largely attributed to his outspoken stance in favor of gun control.

 

What we can see in John Kerry's Sportsmen community is an effort to distance himself from the gun control positions that lost Gore the presidency. Unfortunately his voting record is an unblemished monument to restricting the rights of law abiding Americans.
