Montana Shooting Sports Association Endorsed Ron Paul for President
Dear MSSA Friends,
This may be one of the most important emails I've ever sent you.
Last December MSSA endorsed congressman Ron Paul for the Republican nomination for President, and for good reason. A copy of the news release for that endorsement is pasted below for your interest or reference.
Let me address two more points:
1) The major media wants you to think that Ron Paul has dropped out of the race. NOT TRUE. Ron Paul has chosen to focus remaining resources and energy on getting his delegates elected to the national Republican nominating convention in Tampa, Florida, in August. He knows he cannot go head-to-head with remaining contender Mitt Romney in buying expensive television time, not when Romney is supported by many of the major financial institutions in the US. And, Ron Paul has been collecting lots of delegates to Tampa. The media recently declared that Romney won Texas. The truth: Romney didn't get a single national Republican delegate from Texas. He only won the beauty contest of the public Primary Election, which doesn't matter at all for the nominating convention in Tampa. What matters are delegates. Delegate selection in Texas will be coming soon, but was not decided by the popular vote in the Primary. In many states, Ron Paul has been winning the majority of delegates (are you surprised that the media is not telling you this?) He may do that in Texas too. The bottom line is this: RON PAUL IS STILL VERY MUCH IN THE RACE.
2) Mitt Romney supports gun control. I don't know Romney personally, but my take is that he's a pretty decent guy. However, there's no arguing that he's a pretty decent LIBERAL guy. He has supported a ban on semi-autos and a ban on normal-capacity magazines. He's supported a mandatory five-day waiting period to purchase a firearm. Worst, he's supported a mandatory registration system of gun owners with a verification ID card for all gun owners, a step that led to all of the World's genocides of about 165 MILLION people during the 1900s, according to Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. Rest assured, no matter how decent a guy Romney may be, he is NOT a friend of gun owners. About the right to keep and bear arms, Romney is very much like Obama.
So, when you go to vote on election day, please vote a Republican ballot so you can vote for Ron Paul, a lifetime supporter of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
And, forward this email to every Montana voter you know encouraging them to vote for Ron Paul, too (NOTE: A strong showing by Ron Paul in the Montana Primary Election will help us elect more Ron Paul delegates to Tampa at the upcoming Montana Republican delegate selection convention).
Thanks for taking this seriously and helping to spread the word!!!

Citizen Gun Group Endorses Ron Paul for President
Missoula, Mont. - The Montana Shooting Sports Association announced today that it endorses Congressman Ron Paul for the Republican nomination for President. Citing continuing high poll numbers in spite of a media blackout, MSSA says that Ron Paul is the only candidate who offers a chance to save our Nation as a country of free people.
MSSA President Gary Marbut commented, "Paul receives more contributions from people in the military than all other candidates combined, probably because of his views on foreign policy. He is the only candidate with serious plans to significantly cut the profligate federal spending that is bankrupting our country. Most other candidates only make noises about scaling back planned increases in federal spending. Ron Paul sees the Constitution as a guiding principle, not as an irrelevant relic or a pesky barrier to be circumvented. Finally, Ron Paul has been a consistent and actual supporter of the right to bear arms throughout his entire political career, with no waffling, no compromise and no apology."
MSSA is the primary political advocate for gun owners in Montana. MSSA has gotten 58 pro-gun and pro-hunting bills through the Montana legislature in the past 25 years, litigates pro-gun issues, and provides expertise to Montana about firearm safety, firearm education, shooting ranges, and other topics.
The media has not done a good job of informing the public that Congressman Paul came within a few votes of winning the Iowa Republican caucus straw poll, far ahead of the third-place finisher, and actually won the California Republican caucus straw poll. Many other high points of the Paul campaign have been ignored by the media, often deliberately. For example, a recent straw poll among registered voters in Oklahoma yielded these results: Ron Paul - 46%; Herman Cain - 25%; Newt Gingrich - 17%; Mitt Romney - 6%; and Rick Perry - 3% (others less).
"Many people in America realize that Dr. Paul offers actual hope for America," Marbut continued, "and not just a warmed over version of the status quo approved by the Washington political establishment. That may be what moves the national media to see Dr. Paul as a threat, resulting in a virtual news blackout about his successful campaign."
"American voters are realizing," Marbut concluded, "that the first question in the Republican primary is not which candidate can beat Obama, but which candidate is capable of essential departure from the status quo necessary to save the Nation. They have figured out that Dr. Paul is the only candidate who can do both."
Ron Paul has an A+ rating with Gun Owners of America. About Ron Paul, GOA says, "Guts. That is the one word which describes Rep. Ron Paul of Texas best. Perhaps the most consistent vote in the Congress, he can be expected to oppose any unconstitutional expansion of government, no matter how politically difficult that vote might be. Paul has been a powerful advocate for the Second Amendment and has sponsored legislation to repeal most gun laws dating back to 1968 -- as well as, legislation to get the U.S. out of the anti-gun United Nations."
