He was one of only three Congressmen to vote against the USA Patriot Act -- a law which not only removes many of the delicate checks and balances protecting our freedoms, but opens the door for the ATF to conduct blanket searches in obtaining 4473’s and other gun records.
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.
In 2011, Rep. Paul introduced HR 2613, a bill to repeal the infamous Gun Free School Zones law. Slammed through in 1996 as an amendment to a giant last-minute must-pass appropriations bill, the school zones law disarmed school staff and other adults, leaving elementary and secondary school children defenseless to serial killers.
It also made it virtually impossible to drive your car down the street with your gun inside without violating the law by creating a 1000-foot so-called “gun-free zone” around every public and private school in the country.
It’s “gun free,” that is, except for the criminals.
Paul’s bill, HR 2613, will repeal the Kohl amendment and thus remove the federally created criminal safety zones.
Ron Paul has an A+ rating with Gun Owners of America.
