Gary Johnson is the best of all the candidates when it comes to our 2nd Amendment Freedom! http://www.garyjohnson2012.com/issues

The constitution is clear about this issue. In order to change the constitution there should be a 75% agreement between all voters to do so. Neither Congress, the President, nor the Supreme Courts should be able to alter the constitution. It is FOR the people and BY the people.

Donna Parker-Dunlap

I am an American not a DEM or REP. I follow the Constitution. It is the law of the land. Arms are required to defend from a Government not for hunting or sport. Fighting back is what the second amendment is for.

James McCann

Gary Johnson For the WIN!

Terence Shane K

They aren't saying "we're taking away your guns"... They're saying "Lets tighten up restrictions with a deadly weapon." Don't be stupid with a gun and you can keep it. Be stupid with it and YES it SHOULD be taken away from you. Just like everything else. Kids, cars, homes...

Joel Michael Cox

Gary Johnson all the way!

Cliff Garrett

Give everyone a musket, organize militias and call it even.

Dotti Chesney

Americans are greatly overweight because we eat too much meat. Therefore, get rid of guns and legalize pot to lessen drug crimes which often involve guns.

Ohio's not a swing state?

Robert William Hogg

No

Ron Petersen

What's going on with Wisconsin? I thought everyone there hunted deer. I can't back anyone who's effectively an isolationist. Someone needs to play the world's policeman, and if it's not us it will be the Chinese. Considering who the Chinese have backed in the past I would be scared witless if they were running the show.

Tom Jankovic

Great
