Many 2nd amendment supporters have long argued that the gun control crowd, although they claim to be about safety, are really about controlling the populace.
Otherwise they would be up in arms about the arms proliferation at the EPA. Perhaps it's the conviction that the government can do no wrong, so they go silent. But environmentalists employed by the government are not likely to be any more concerned with safety than the average gun owner.
Aw, who am I kidding? It's not about safety, it's about control.
Meanwhile, Joe Perticone at ijreview.com compiled a list showing Where Each Presidential Candidate Stands on Gun Rights. As you might guess, the Republican candidates are more supportive of gun rights than Democrats.
