Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Rants of Sioux Ctiy [sic] is calling for another new amendment to the state’s constitution, one that guarantees Iowans have the right “to keep and bear arms.”I was really thinking of maybe, kinda, sort of coming around to the guy. But then we find out this:
Iowa is one of six states which do not have such an amendment in their state constitution, and Rants says that’s important given today’’s announcement that the U.S. Supreme Court will hear a gun rights case.
Rants is not a gun owner or a hunterNo, he's just an opportunistic politician puke, who's trying to drum up support from gun owners in Iowa.
“I still believe that’s a right that someday I may want to take advantage of,” Rants says.
Well, good luck with that.
This putz is willing to have State Troopers carry guns to protect his sorry backside if he became governor, and he's perfectly willing to pull the wool over Iowans' eyes to get there.
I can't wait for him to show up at the ubiquitous politician pheasant hunt at the big-time donor's pasture. I hope he knows the four rules and passes his hunter safety test.
Des Moines Register has a brief article, too. Rants: Iowa needs to protect the right to bear arms
No, we need statesmen not politicians.
Update:This sparked communication between Rep Rants and myself - My apology to Rep Rants
