Tipton is a strong defender of the Second Amendment, earning an “A” rating for his pro-gun voting record in the Colorado legislature.
In the statement released by GOA, Tim Macy, the vice-chairman, said:
His opponent, John Salazar, likes to pretend to be pro-gun, but his own voting record tells a different story. In 2009, Salazar voted three times against GOA’s efforts to protect gun rights in national parks.
He also voted for the massive ObamaCare bill, despite repeated warnings from GOA that the new law does not contain adequate safeguards to keep government bureaucrats from using a federal database of medical records to strip gun owners of their Second Amendment rights.
Given his anti-gun voting record, it should not come as a surprise that Salazar also voted for the so-called DISCLOSE Act—a bill that seeks to keep groups like GOA from publicly criticizing federal, elected officials.
And, of course, every two years Salazar votes for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. The San Francisco liberal does not represent the views of pro-gun Coloradans.
Colorado gun owners and sportsmen deserve real leadership on gun rights issues.
The NRA has endorsed John Salazar.
