Where Do They Stand on the Second Amendment?
But one question that remains for gun owners is where do the candidates stand on gun control issues?
Even after the debate on Friday, and throughout all the speeches over the past week, most candidates have not even mentioned the Second Amendment.

The next president will be faced with a UN Arms Trade Treaty that could impact the rights of every American gun owner. Will he or she urge the Senate to ratify such a treaty, or toss it into the Oval Office wastebasket?
What if the Congress passes a new ban on semi-automatic firearms, or so-called large capacity magazines, or legislation to put gun shows out of business? Will the new president break out the veto pen, or sign such bills into law?
Will the next president sign or veto legislation to repeal the anti-gun ObamaCare—which could lead to the disarming of hundreds of thousands of gun owners based on the opinions of doctors?
And what about the burgeoning scandal known as Project Gunrunner? Can gun owners be assured that the person elected president in 2012 will hold the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) accountable for any wrongdoing?
All of these questions and more are asked by Gun Owners of America in our 2012 Presidential Candidate Questionnaire.
The questionnaire was sent to the candidates, but you know that many politicians would prefer not to put their Second Amendment views on record. So we are asking our members to contact any (or all) of the candidates listed below and urge them to complete the GOA questionnaire.
We have compiled a list of Republican candidates without regard to where they finished in recent polls. Included are links to their webforms, phone numbers (if available) and also a sample letter you can cut-and-paste or use as talking points.
And after you’ve contacted the candidates, please consider helping
