ANCHORAGE, ALASKA—The Ron Paul 2008 Alaska presidential campaign invites Anchorage-area gun owners to a gun rights town hall meeting on Tuesday, January 29 at 7:00 p.m. The Q&A session will be held at the Ron Paul 2008 Alaska State Headquarters in Anchorage at 3339 Fairbanks St., near 34th and Old Seward, behind the Moose’s Tooth.
“Congressman Paul is the leading advocate for gun owners and their rights in the presidential race,” said Paul Alaska state political director Craig Bergman. “He is the only presidential candidate truly fighting for the Second Amendment rights of Alaskans, and he will continue to fight against unconstitutional federal intervention in the rights of gun owners as President.”
Ten-term Texas Congressman and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is the only pro-gun, pro-Constitution presidential candidate, and his record on Second Amendment rights is unparalleled. In the House of Representatives, Congressman Paul has led the fight to restore Second Amendment rights to all Americans, introduced legislation to repeal the “Gun Free Zone” victim disarmament law and National “Instant Background Check” gun registration bills, opposed gun control projects that would force registration of all private sales, introduced legislation to protect American’s rights to carry guns in national parks, and is currently fighting for the rights of US veterans to own guns without government interference.
Congressman Paul’s Alaska campaign is building on the heels of his second-place finishes in the Nevada and Louisiana caucuses. He is the only Republican presidential candidate actively campaigning in Alaska, with 2 offices, 11 field staffers, and 40 district chairs operating statewide.
Congressman Paul is also the highest-polling Republican presidential candidate in Alaska. In December’s KTUU presidential preference poll, Ron Paul placed first with 29 percent of the vote.
The Alaska Republican presidential primary vote will take place on February 5, 2008.
