GOA will be working against any 2016 Presidential Candidates who are pro-amnesty

Political pundits agree there will be a swarm of folks running for the Republican nomination for President in 2016, but Gun Owners of America will be narrowing the field very quickly with one simple assessment.

Any candidate who believes in amnesty for illegal aliens will be on the “outs” with us.

Anyone who can read knows amnesty goes directly against the Constitution.  And anyone who can read polls should be able to figure out why Obama and his political minions want amnesty.

A 2013 Pew research poll [1] suggested that illegals, if given citizenship, would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-1 margin. That’s millions of new votes going to Democrats in national and state elections.

And another recent Pew Poll showed that Americans are pro-gun, except Hispanics, who are in favor of strict gun controls by a 71% to 25% margin. That’s another reason why Obama and the Democrats are pro-amnesty.

Republican “leadership” (or lack thereof) did nothing to stop the unconstitutional Obama amnesty in the last few weeks of this year, which makes us wonder if these guys and gals can read.

Senators Cruz and Lee tried to get Senate leadership to do something about Obama’s illegalities, but they were set up for defeat by Democrat Leader Harry Reid and his Republican friends.

Republican leadership has another chance after the first of the year to try and lead, but their track record leaves us concerned that nothing good will happen.

That’s why picking the correct Republican in the presidential primaries is crucial to saving America.

Our job at Gun Owners of America has been made much easier in the primaries because several of the potential candidates have already tipped their hand in favor of amnesty, narrowing the field in our eyes to only a few.  We’ll soon be putting out an assessment of all potential presidential candidates for all pro-gun, pro-Constitution Americans to use.
