Gun Owners Call Gingrich ‘Anti-Gun’ Politician
by Tom McGregor
Gun owners of the United States of America proudly boast their support for the second amendment which grants them the right “to bear arms.” Nevertheless, Georgia gun owners are living in fear that Newt Gingrich might get elected into the White House, since he’s a strong advocate of stricter gun control laws.
According to Talk Radio News Service, “grassroots guns rights groups in Georgia blasted GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich today for supporting gun control laws during his time as Speaker of the House.”
The organization issued a statement on Monday saying that, “Georgia Gun Owners know Newt’s history of gun control. He represented parts of our state for 20 years. He’s been playing both sides of the gun issue as long as we can remember.”
As reported by Talk Radio News Service, “prior to becoming Speaker, Gingrich had an ‘A’ rating with Gun Owners of America (GOA). However, once he came to power the GOA dropped his rating to a ‘D.’”
The activists disclosed recently that Gingrich spoke against more gun regulations although he supported gun control legislation in the House.
