Thanks to federal tax laws, Guns Save Life cannot endorse candidates. However, we can point out where those would-be politicians stand on our issue: guns.
Illinois Attorney General’s race offers a pair of savvy African-Americans running for the state’s top legal beagle. Former Miss America and Harvard grad Erika Harold offers a fresh new face to Illinois politics. Meanwhile, Kwame Raoul, represents more of the same failed Democrat machine politics that have driven Illinois off a fiscal cliff.
Harold, who ran for the Republican nomination for a Congressional seat, embraced gun rights during the campaign. She hit gun clubs and gun organizations in addition to a host of other events. Without a doubt, she supports our right to defend ourselves and our families.
On the other hand, Kwame Raoul’s claim to fame was getting himself appointed to fill Barack Obama’s old Illinois Senate seat. He has worked tirelessly to keep his fellow African-Americans firmly mired on the Democrat gun control plantation.
It’s true. Despite the utter failure of generations of strict gun control in Chicago, Kwame Raoul has not yet met a gun control law he doesn’t like. After all, strict gun control represents such as small price to pay for the peace and tranquility on Chicago’s streets, right?
At the same time, Kwame Raoul lives and works behind a wall of armed security that virtually no regular Illinois residents can afford. In fact, he’s protected by some of the finest taxpayer-funded security.
We have a a choice: a former Miss America with her poise and smarts vs. a slick-talking community organizer bent on taking your gun rights away as a Chicago Machine politician.
