I won't get into the presidential election but encourage everyone in this forum to take a close look at who's running in their local and State elections. Research the candidates so you know their stances on political issues before you hit the polls and pull the levers and vote along particular party lines. Don't hesitate to call candidates' offices and ask directly about their stance on 2A and citizen gun ownership. As far as preserving 2A-related freedoms, local lawmakers most often have a greater influence on your gun rights than the Feds. Keep that in mind when you head to the polls in a couple of weeks.
