Conservatives and Libertarians United Against Ron Paul

Watching what Ron Paul does. Not what he says.

Gun Control

Voted NO on decreasing gun waiting period from 3 days to 1.

Vote to pass a bill requiring anyone who purchases a gun at a gun show to go through an instant background check which must be completed within 24 hours [instead of 72 hours]. Reference: Bill introduced by McCollum, R-FL; Bill HR 2122 ; vote number 1999-244 on Jun 18, 1999

Voted NO on prohibiting suing gunmakers & sellers for gun misuse.

Vote to pass a bill that would prohibit liability lawsuits from being brought against gun manufacturers and dealers based on the criminal misuse of firearms. The bill would also block these actions from being brought up against gun trade organizations and against ammunition makers and sellers. The measure would apply immediately to any pending cases. Several specific exceptions to the ban exist. This includes civil suits would be allowed against a maker or dealer who “knowingly and willfully violated” state or federal laws in the selling or marketing of a weapon. Design and manufacturing defect lawsuits are also permitted when weapons are “used as intended. Reference: Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act; Bill HR 1036 ; vote number 2003-124 on Apr 9, 2003

Voted NO on prohibiting product misuse lawsuits on gun manufacturers.

A bill to prohibit civil liability actions from being brought or continued against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, or importers of firearms or ammunition for damages, injunctive or other relief resulting from the misuse of their products by others. A YES vote would:

  • Prohibit individuals from filing a qualified civil liability action
  • Exempt lawsuits brought against individuals who knowingly transfer a firearm that will be used to commit a violent or drug-trafficking crime
  • Exempt lawsuits against actions that result in death, physical injury or property damage due solely to a product defect
  • Dismiss of all civil liability actions pending on the date of enactment
  • Prohibit the manufacture, import, sale or delivery of armor piercing ammunition

Reference: Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act; Bill S 397 ; vote number 2005-534 on Oct 20, 2005

    I do not believe theose behind this hatchet site are too stupid to understand Dr. Paul voted the way he did on the above referenced bills. Unlike the bulk of the hypocrites pretending to possess any fidelity for the Constitution, Dr. Paul does not compromise on the oath of office he took.
    These votes were made becuse FedGov does not have any legitimate power to legislate anything to do with firearms, be that ban them outright, or institute a one day waiting period. Neither does the Constitution authorize congress to premptively decide who may or may not be sued.
    Were this site at all interested in truth rather than one-sided distortions and half lies, Dr. Paul’s MNAY pro-gun votes would be displayed.
    Also absent is this ringing endorsement by Larry Pratt, Executive Director of an actual pro-gun organization that does not spend its time compromising with gun grabbers or actually writing gun control legislation like the NRE does. Mr. Pratt, under the banner of his Gun Owners of America said on Ron Paul:

    Texas Congressman Ron Paul’s pro-gun credentials are impeccable and he has been a leading proponent of rolling back the past 40 years of gun control.

    Ron Paul has represented areas near Houston, Texas for nearly 20 years in the U.S. House of Representatives. He has the reputation of the paramount defender of the Constitution and seeks to follow it in casting every one of his votes.

    Ron Paul has been a leader in the fight to defend and restore the Second Amendment. He has sponsored legislation to repeal the following:

    * the Brady law;
    * the requirement to lock up your safety (guns);
    * the law permitting the US to be part of the UN (which, among other attacks on American freedoms, seeks to ban privately transfered firearms);
    * participation in UNESCO — which has been used to dumb down US education standards;
    * the federal prohibition on importation of guns on a sporting basis test;
    * federal prohibitions on any pilot wishing to carry a handgun to and in his cockpit; and,
    * the so-called “assault weapons” ban (prior to its sunsetting in 2004).

    Paul also has sponsored legislation requiring states to treat the concealed carry permit of one state the same as they do that state’s driver’s license.

    Paul has viewed his opposition to a national ID card as a protection for gun owners. A national ID card would most likely identify the bearer as a gun owner, among other things of interest to government officials.

    Paul acknowledges his underdog status in the 2008 presidential race. He argues that he is offering himself as a pro-Second Amendment alternative to the candidates who have initially led the field, none of whom have a pro-gun record. Paul hopes to use his long experience in raising grassroots support to gain sufficient funding to become the pro-gun alternative to the current leaders of the field.

    Ron Paul is a Medical Doctor who for years even as a member of Congress continued practicing as an obstetrician. He is married and has five children, 17 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

    Shocking that none of this was missing from your one-sided, decietful site.

    I agree what a bunch of hacks trying to character asassinate DR Paul. So typical of the two parties.

    Ron Paul stood up for the gun owner when he voted against that bill. What Ron Paul actually did by voting against HR 2122 (1999) was to defeat an attempt to close the so called “gun show loophole” by requiring that all sales of firearms at a gun show go through an FBI background check. That would include sales between private individuals. Please don’t just take my word for it, visit the link below and read the bill for yourself. Stay safe, Gary
