“… Another strong opinion held by the presumptive Republican vice presidential nominee, although not one that has received much attention so far, is that he is very, very pro-gun. His passion for hunting and for gun rights could make a critical difference in battleground states …”
“… Mitt Romney’s choice of Wisconsinite Paul Ryan as his running mate was a bold move on more than one level, and one that should hit the right nerve with American gun owners worried about Romney’s record on gun rights … Adding Ryan to the ticket brings credibility with gun owners; a commodity Republicans need to get gun owners off the couches and away from their keyboards to the voting booths. Where Romney certainly can depend upon Ryan’s savvy with a budget, he should also rely on the congressman’s counsel where gun and hunting rights are concerned …”
I agree with this. What I find interesting, though, is that I have not seen the antis attacking Ryan yet. Considering how much blood-dancing they’ve been doing lately I would have assumed they’d jump on him right from the start.
