2008 Presidential Candidates' Gun Rights Score Card


With the 2008 Presidential election drawing near, campaigns are now being forced to take positions on Second Amendment issues. We'll attempt to document and grade both parties candidates, and let you know when new information arises. Check below for more information on the posting criteria.

The purpose of the NAGR Presidential Gun Rights Score Card is to cut through the election year rhetoric and reveal the truth about the Presidential candidates' records on gun control. Support of the the right to keep and bear arms, a basic constitutionally protected freedom, should be expected from those who seek the highest office in the land.

Research for the score card continues. If you don't see a particular candidate listed they may have met the minimum requirements of respect for our constitutional rights or we are still building a case against them.
