Tampa, FL-
Yesterday, the delegates of the 2012 RNC Convention formalized the 2012
Republican Party Platform and the most Pro-Gun Platform we have ever
seen from the Grand Old Party.
Republican Party Platform is the
definitive statement of the Republican Party’s principles and ideals.
The document is a culmination of work done by the Committee on
Resolutions and 111 delegates from every state and territory.
The 2012 Platform voices support for Self Defense, National Concealed Carry
Reciprocity, Opposes Ammunition & Firearms Registration, No
Restrictions on “High Capacity Magazines”, Promotion of Gun Safety and
as well as condemning ”Fast & Furious” and long gun sales reporting.
Second Amendment: Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms We uphold the right
of individuals to keep and bear arms, a right which antedated the
Constitution and was solemnly confirmed by the Second Amendment. We
acknowledge, support, and defend the lawabiding citizen’s God-given
right of self-defense. We call for the protection of such fundamental
individual rights recognized in the Supreme Court’s decisions in
District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago affirming that
right, and we recognize the individual responsibility to safely use and
store firearms. This also includes the right to obtain and store
ammunition without registration. We support the fundamental right to
self-defense wherever a lawabiding citizen has a legal right to be, and
we support federal legislation that would expand the exercise of that
right by allowing those with state-issued carry permits to carry
firearms in any state that issues such permits to its own residents. Gun
ownership is responsible citizenship, enabling Americans to defend
their homes and communities. We condemn frivolous lawsuits against gun
manufacturers and oppose federal licensing or registration of
law-abiding gun owners. We oppose legislation that is intended to
restrict our Second Amendment rights by limiting the capacity of clips
or magazines or otherwise restoring the illconsidered Clinton gun ban.
We condemn the reckless actions associated with the operation known as
“Fast and Furious,” conducted by the Department of Justice, which
resulted in the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent and others on both
sides of the border. We applaud the Members of the U.S. House of
Representatives in holding the current Administration’s Attorney General
in contempt of Congress for his refusal to cooperate with their
investigation into that debacle. We oppose the improper collection of
firearms sales information in the four southern border states, which was
imposed without congressional authority.”
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus had this to say:
platform represents a party that is unified and dedicated to the most
important issues of our day: getting the economy back on track and
restoring fiscal responsibility,” said Priebus.”
“We’ve also
reaffirmed that we’re a party of life, traditional values, a strong
national defense, and a reverence for the rights and liberties granted
by our creator and laid out by our Founders in the Constitution.”
