Rubens For US Senate - "2nd Amendment Protection Tour" Underway 

Says lines are clear as to who actually stands with NH's law-abiding gun owners

 

Jim Rubens, candidate for U.S. Senate, kicked off a statewide tour this week of gun shops, firearms training facilities, manufacturers and advocacy groups.

 

Rubens started his tour Tuesday night by addressing the Gun Owners of NH monthly meeting highlighting his strong stance in support of NH's large firearm community.  On yesterday, Rubens toured the Green Mountain Rifle Barrels manufacturing facility in  Conway, the largest facility in the country that solely produces rifle barrels which is locally-owned and employs 140 people. 

 

"The individual right to keep and bear arms is inviolably guaranteed under both the US and New Hampshire constitutions. If elected, I will vote to defend law-abiding citizens’ right to own and to use firearms for all lawful purposes. While serving in the state senate, I earned an “A” rating from the NRA," Rubens said.

 

Rubens adds, "I have lived in New Hampshire for 40 years, I know how important the issue is for law-abiding gun owners to be able to protect themselves and their families.  I fully appreciate and defend our hunting traditions that many enjoy and depend on.  I see the camaraderie that occurs at our local gun ranges.  I will not vote for legislation that would turn priceless family heirlooms into unlawful property as Sen. Jeanne Shaheen did. Sen. Shaheen voted to create a whole new criminal class out of people who simply want to pass along firearms to their heirs while they're still living.  I don't need to 'listen and learn' about the 2nd Amendment.  When I served as state senator, I swore to uphold both the U.S. and New Hampshire constitutions, I look forward to doing so again as U.S. Senator."
