Ron Paul needs to Eliminate the ATFSubmitted by ebb on Wed, 11/23/2011 - 20:54
I think RP needs to do announce that he will do away with all federal gun control laws and the ATF. As a gun owner I can tell you how frustrating it is to deal with background checks and laws that bar you from getting the weapons you want. I also know that just mentioning Obama at any gun store will get people talking. Gun owners are a vast untapped voter resource that can be directed towards RP if he announce the elimination of the ATF and all federal gun laws. States can then regulate their own weapons as they choose which should ease the concern of some republicans and most democrats. It could push a lot of conservatives in his direction and if he gave it a nifty name like Cain did for his it would give him a lot of momentum in the last stages of the campaign.
