Gun Owners of America Endorses Phil Moffett for Governor
Gun Owners of America is proud to endorse Phil Moffett for Governor in the May 17 Republican primary.
Phil is a strong supporter of the rights to keep and bear arms and dedicated to protecting the rights of Kentucky gun owners.
As governor, Phil will stand against unconstitutional intrusions of the federal government. Along with his running mate, Mike Harmon, he understands that the U.S. Constitution is a check on federal power-not a grant of unlimited authority.
"The Obama administration continues to expand the federal government's size, power, and debt, at the direct expense of our personal liberties," writes Moffett. "Kentucky needs to exercise the rights granted to states in the 9th and 10th amendments of the U.S. Constitution.
"The Moffett/Harmon Administration will review federal laws and regulations to determine if they are compliant with the U.S. Constitution and Commonwealth's Constitution. If they do not pass muster, we will protect our citizens by fighting against them."
Phil also supports the Firearms Freedom Act, which holds that any firearm that is made in the state, identified as such, and stays in the state is exempt from all federal firearms laws.
A graduate of the University of Kentucky now residing in Louisville, Phil is a successful businessman-not a career politician. He entered this race to stand up to big-government bureaucrats both in Frankfort and Washington. This is exactly the type of person we need to run for public office.
GOA encourages gun owners and sportsmen across the Bluegrass State to support Phil Moffett for Governor in the Republican primary on May 17, 2011.
