Candidate Mark Moores on 2A
The upcoming election for New Mexico’s Congressional District One is one of the most important elections in the country. Non-presidential elections seldom receive coverage commensurate with their importance, and we think it’s time to change that. We have reached out to all four candidates to request that they share their positions on the Second Amendment with us. We are attaching links to each candidate’s response so you can make your own decision. We have not altered the thoughts that they have shared with us in any way. It is crucial that we, the electorate, stay as informed as possible. We hope this helps that process in some small way.
Once again the 2nd Amendment is under siege in our country by the extremist politicians in Washington. The differences in candidates in the CD-01 couldn’t be starker. While I have been endorsed by NRA, my opponent Melanie Stansbury has received an F.
I will always stand shoulder to shoulder with you to defend our God given rights and Melanie has pledged to fight to take your guns away. It’s really that simple.
Right now our city is experiencing record murder rates, crime is out of control. To think that law abiding citizens shouldn’t be able to defend themselves is mind boggling. What’s worse are the radical positions Melanie has taken on the issue of crime.
Recently at a campaign forum she expressed her support for the BREATHE Act. This is the most dangerous legislation in America. It would defund the police, disband ICE, the Border Patrol, the DEA, and the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. The BREATHE Act would even make it that federal police officers can’t go within a 1,000 feet of a school or bus stop. It would empty every federal prison America in 10 years. If the BREATHE Act sounds completely crazy it’s because it is but don’t take my word for it, go to breatheact.org to read it for yourself.
The bottomline is that we can’t have radicals representing us in DC. That’s why I’m asking for your vote and to get your friends and family to the polls for me. We can win this and send a message that we are tired of the crime that plagues our streets, and that as law abiding gun owners we won’t be silenced or treated like criminals.
My promise to you is that I have and always will stand up for the 2nd Amendment. Thank you for your vote.
