Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund is proud to endorse Cory Gardner for Congress in Colorado’s Fourth District. Tim Macy, Vice Chairman of Gun Owners of America, issued the following statement o members and supporters:
“As a state representative, Cory Gardner has never wavered in his support of the right to keep and bear arms. A firm believer that citizens have the right to protect themselves inside and outside of the home, Cory authored a bill to expand Colorado’s Castle Doctrine law.
“He introduced the “Make My Day Better” bill, which extends the same right of self-defense to people at businesses that are currently held by individuals in their homes. Cory introduced that bill five different times in the State House.
“He was also a strong supporter of HB-1180, which would allow a concealed carry permit to be a substitute for a background check when purchasing a gun. Cory Gardner is a proven fighter on behalf of the Second Amendment.
“Betsy Markey, the incumbent congresswoman, plays both sides of the gun issue and often sides with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. For instance, in 2009, she voted three times against a bill to repeal a gun ban in National Parks, before voting for the measure when it was certain to pass.
“Rep. Markey also helped Pelosi pass the federal takeover of health care, despite repeated warnings from GOA that the bill does not contain safeguards to prevent the federal government from using a medical records database to strip people of their Second Amendment rights.
“And recently, Markey joined a host of other anti-gunners in voting for the so-called “Disclose Act,” which puts severe and unconstitutional limits on GOA’s ability to hold individual congressmen accountable in the weeks leading up to an election.
“Cory Gardner stands in sharp contrast to his opponent. His views of the Second Amendment are consistent with those of the Founding Fathers and with the majority of Colorado voters.
“GOA-PVF encourages gun owners and sportsmen to stand with Cory Gardner in the November election."
