    Not sure where you got the A+ for Bachmann. GOA still has her as an A, not an A+. This has been all year. I thought maybe they changed it or something since you had that for her, but they haven’t.

    Well, first, GOA isn’t what I’d call a reliable indicator of candidate ideology. Another example is the listing of S.1001 was NRA trying to moot D.C. v. Parker (sub nom Heller). Were that to have been successful, there would be no Supreme Court decision upholding the D.C. circuit’s decision that 2A is an individual right, and no McDonald v. Chicago follow-on case applying 2A to the states and local governments.

    Ron Paul takes some outlandish view against incorporation doctrine; in essence, he feels that “states rights” are somehow of greater importance than fundamental individual rights.

    My point is that just because someone sponsored a bill does not mean they have what’s best for the Bill of Rights in mind. Those sort of issues, I think, are important in discerning where candidates actually are.

  3. In addition to an A+ rating from the Gun Owners of America (GOA), Ron Paul also received the Defender of the Second Amendment Award from the GOA this year:

    Bachmann also has a great record, and also has an A+ from GOA. Romney and Gingrich are not allies to Second Amendment rights, and finish last in GOA ratings.
