With eleven weeks left until the election, I am looking into all the issues, and where the candidates stand on them. Because I am an outdoorsman, and I come from a long line of gun owners, the issue of personal gun ownership and the rights I think I am entitled to are important to me.

Granted, I do not live in a major city and I am not exposed to violent crimes that include guns. I do own many firearms, and after a required safety course, and hunter training course, My 13 year old son is the proud owner of a single shot 20 gauge shotgun, and a 12 gauge pump shotgun. A quote from Obamas book Audacity of Hope, is " I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction " Well, what better place for the Muslims to control our country, than in the office of the President of United States ? Let me say this, I will NOT give up my guns for anyone, and I think that there are many more that stand with me. Yes, before I get hate comments, not everyone should have a firearm, and I agree that there are problems with crimes involving guns, but not at my house. .
