Speaking of the Second Amendment— I have a litmus test that I use on a candidate for office. Any office. Briefly, it is 'Where does this candidate stand on the Second Amendment?' So maybe his job will have nothing whatsoever to do with anything remotely related to the 2A. Doesn't matter. Opposition to the RKBA is an indicator of a mind-set that I don't want to have anywhere near a position of power.
Does this make me a "one issue voter"? Not really, but they do have to get through that first test before we go to the next levels.
The way I look at it, if a politician doesn't trust me with a firearm, why should I trust him or her with my country?
