Dear Friend of the Second Amendment,
Our Second Amendment rights are at stake in the Republican primary in
Michigan's 7th congressional district, and the choice is clear: Tim
Walberg is a consistent defender of second amendment rights, while
Congressman Joe Schwarz is not.
The election is coming up soon, on August 8th, so please read on and
Tim Walberg vigorously defended our Second Amendment rights during
his 16 years in the Michigan House of Representatives. He is an avid
sportsman and understands the Second Amendment is a constitutionally
protected individual right. Tim is the type of principled, bold
fighter for gun owner rights that we need in Congress.
Tim's opponent, Congressman Joe Schwarz is no friend of gun owners.
Schwarz does not believe the Second Amendment is an individual right
(Detroit Free Press, 7-5-02). Schwarz opposed Michigan's
concealed-carry law and even called it "nuts" (MIRS, 8-31-02).
Beyond opposing pro-Second Amendment legislation, Schwarz called gun
owners "bubbas" (MIRS, 8-31-02) and described gun owners as
foaming, salivating concealed weapons crew" (MIRS, 8-31-02).
Joe Schwarz has brought his anti-gun philosophy to Congress. On June
28, Schwarz opposed a pro-gun amendment to repeal a mandatory trigger
Gun Owners of America is dedicated to preserving and defending our
Second Amendment rights. Firearms ownership is a freedom issue and
Tim Walberg is the only consistent defender of freedom in this race.
GOA-PVF proudly endorses Tim Walberg for Congress.

competitive, and the side that mobilizes best will win.
