NRA Sitting out of Alabama Race?

The NRA has not rated pro-gun Republican Roy Moore vs. pro-gun control Democrat Doug Jones in the race for the Alabama U.S. Senate seat, so Breitbart News is rating the two men for voters who are curious as to where the candidates stand on the Second Amendment.


To begin with, Doug Jones is not only open to more gun control but is actually supportive of more gun control.

On November 21 Breitbart News reported that Jones’ support of gun control might not be readily apparent to potential voters because Jones stayed mum on where he stood. But he uttered enough bits and pieces about his positions that clear pro-gun control positions came into focus. For example, he told the Washington Post that expanding background checks to gun shows “would be helpful.”

Jones did not point to even once incident where a mass public attacker acquired his guns at a gun show. Rather, he simply blew the dog whistle for leftists via the Democrats’ age-old war on gun shows.

Jones’ willingness to expand background checks is simply an outgrowth of his overarching belief that the Second Amendment is limited. The Alabama Political Reporter quoted him saying, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.” Again, this is same phraseology other leftists use when they seek to justify infringing on those rights of which it is written, “Shall not be infringed.” Gun control Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), for instance, said similar things when he told told Rachel Maddow, “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

But wait–there is more. Politico recently gave Jones the opportunity to convince voters that he did not want to take their guns and Jones pivoted, focusing instead on another part of the question.

The bottom line is that Jones is another pro-gun control Democrat who varnishes over his liberal positions by assuring everyone he is pro-hunting, although the Second Amendment is not about hunting. Rather, it is about defending our lives and liberty from a tyranny within or without our borders. And this is where Roy Moore comes in. On September 12 he told Breitbart News that national reciprocity for concealed carry should be passed immediately and on September 25 he told an audience, “We’ve got to uphold the Second Amendment.”

He added, “You know, they say that guns are bad; that they kill people. Well I know a lot about guns–I’m the one that used guns in combat. I know what guns do…[But] guns don’t kill, people kill. [You could say] cars kill, are we going to get rid of our cars? Are we going to get rid of our knives?”

Moore lifted a concealed carry revolver in the air in two separate campaign events to show that he and his wife do more than just talk about carrying guns, they actually carry them.

And the differences between Moore and Jones are even clearer when one considers that Moore opposes the very gun controls Jones supports. For example, on September 20 Breitbart News reported that “Moore opposes an expansion of background checks for gun purchases. He views an expansion of background checks as a ruse by which the left can secure government-mandated firearm registration.”

It is clear that Moore understands the insidious nature of expanding background checks, be that expansion at gun shows or to all private sales. He sees that the end of such an expansion is gun registration. Moreover, Moore opposes an ‘assault weapons’ ban and a ‘high capacity’ magazine ban, two bans that are being feverishly pushed by the Democrat Party to which Doug Jones belongs.

So rating these two candidates is not so hard. Moore is absolutely pro-Second Amendment, which includes being for concealed carry and self-defense while opposing the various infringements on liberty being pushed by the Democrat Party. On the other hand, Jones is absolutely pro-gun control, which includes supporting an expansion of background checks and viewing the Second Amendment as limited, therefore open to government regulation.

A victory for Moore means Republicans gain a strong pro-Second Amendment vote in the Senate. A victory for Jones means Sens. Chris Murphy (D-CT), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) get another pro-gun control vote, which bolsters their push to restrict to the Second Amendment.

    In cases where a candidate waffles about a question rather than plainly answering it, one might assume that the candidate is engaging in “fence sitting”, a less than admirable activity.

  • Gerry Costa

    Moore needs to win that election. I’m sure Alabamans have seen through this smear campaign and the total false accusations that came from the demoTRASH/rinos trying to keep another Pres.Trump team mate from being elected.

    • Tim

      Let’s all hope and pray that Alabamans can see theough this smear campaign!!

      • jetmagnet

        You are an idiot. Smear campaign? Moore has been an A**hole since he was born. lol

        • Tim

          Wow jet, you know how to call me names! You must be very smart!

          • jetmagnet

            Look up his record. Maybe you like garbage. Only a f** moron would call that a smear campaign.
            The lady on Tv wasn’t freaskin acting,ok? If you can’t tell when someones lying or telling the truth , you need a reality check. 8 women came out and are now subject to threats and harassment. They didn’t get a damn thing for it. Moore was banned from the mall. There are more than 30 collaborating witnesses, how many do you need 60, 100? Your an idiot.

          • Tim

            jet, get real! Accusations like this are a complete rewriting of history! These accusations amount to nothing! We are talking about minor events almost a half a century ago! You really need a reality check!

          • Is that why Washington Post reporters were willing to pay women to claim against Moore?

          • tomnchrist

            Dumb Troll!

        • James Clooney

          you are just a loud mouth commie democrat—you don’t even know Moore so how do you know he’s an A hole since he was born—liar

        • tomnchrist

          Dumb Troll

  • Tom

    I think that Doug Jones’s position on gun control is extremely clear by the simple fact that he is a Democrat, so there is absolutely no question as to where he stands on gun control.

  • Stan Joy

    Personally, I don’t believe that Moore is guilty, as it seems strange that these women would come out with this after 40 years!! So I am voting for Moore!! To those of you who are going to abstain or thinking of not voting for Moore, THINK about this, Moore denies charges against him, but admits he is a CHRISTIAN and VERY CONSERVATIVE, believes we have the RIGHT to bear ARMS!! Now, Jones admits, HE IS VERY LIBERAL, WILL FIGHT TRUMP, HAS THE BACKING OF GEORGE SOROS, STRONG, STRONG SUPPORTER OF ABORTIONS, in other words A BABY KILLER!!! Please, think about these things. God Bless

      I am unabashedly a Moore fan. I don’t live in Alabama, so I can’t vote for him-but, I have donated to his campaign. I was terribly disappointed when the accusations of his bad behavior were released. But, I have studied each and every accuser and their stories. I have read of the debunking of these stories and I am in a place where I totally believe Moore. I was ready to drop my backing when the original four accusers stories broke. Then, some of those stories began to be dismantled and I saw a familiar pattern-as any story was debunked, a new one was stacked onto the pile. I have seen many worthy Republicans destroyed by this tactic (Herman Cain comes to mind). When Gloria Allred showed up with another accuser in tow, I made my final decision-flags pop up when she joins the fray and the flags are ALL RED. She is a totally corrupt Democrat shill and she only shows up when the battle is being lost-her standard operating procedure is to pile on and create doubts by sheer numbers.

      Moore is a child molestor. I guess that’s ok with you. Molest the living while protecting a fetus.
      GOD will prevail and Moore will loose!

      • James Clooney

        Now we have Satan calling on his master(GOD) to help him—what a turn around !!!

    • jetmagnet

      Forget Soros, the Koch suckers( bros) are stealing your money and your rights. Soros does nothing more than campaign contributions, and has organizations that help people. The Koch suckers(bros), want to take all your rights away.

      • James Clooney

        you are truly ignorant

      • Brian Bertha

        Trolling along

  • Stan Joy

    Ed, there isn’t anything that I can add to your comments. I will ask you to continue as I will also in exposing these Leftist!! Just a very, very informed piece. Thanks again. God Bless

  • tomnchrist

    Well, I will withhold my NRA renewal until Moore wins.

    • jetmagnet

      I quit the NRA because they take youre money and laugh all the way to the bank. Jones is the best, moore sucks. Maybe he can baby sit your daughter, not mine!

  • RDB

    Jones doesn’t understand that the Constitution and especially the Amendments are there to control the Government; not the states and people. He must not realize, or supports, the fact that gun registration is the first step to confiscation, just like Hitler did, like Great Britain, Australia, and every communist country did. Register the guns, ban them one at a time and finally confiscate them. We do not need Jones in the Senate!

    • jetmagnet

      As a gun owner, I want people registered, there’s too many fruitcakes with guns, because of loose laws.

      • tomnchrist

        Still a Dumb Troll!

  • jetmagnet

    Moore sucks and is disgusting , me , my family and all my friends are voting, the coherent, sane candidate. He’ll do a great job. Moore is an idiot and no one will listen to him , if he’s elected. Besides he’s a child molester and a pervert.

    You can marry your name to that garbage and answer for it on judgement day. When you picked politics over GOD.

  • jetmagnet

    As far as the NRA is concerned, they nothing more than lobbyist making money off stupid people.
    They use to be decent b4 wayne laprick took ove. Now they’re a rightwing lobbying group, that has trouble selling guns and are losing money so,they have to rile people up.

  • Moore is real, Jones is not.

  • Brian Bertha

    As a NRA Endowment member I have to be disappointed the NRA in general seems to have diluted their own effectiveness if nothing else they sould give Moore an A and his opponent an F in regards to the constitution
