Andrew Hunt For Governor: Position on Gun Rights

Andrew-Hunt_0The Andrew Hunt for Governor campaign has release this statement clarifying his position on Gun Rights and the 2nd Amendment:

“As the only candidate in the gubernatorial race to stand for personal freedom and responsibility, I wish to make absolutely clear my stance on one of our most cherished constitutional rights. The right to keep and bear arms is a right guaranteed by both the US constitution and our state constitution. It would be with great pleasure and my duty as governor of this great state to sign any bill that comes across my desk re-affirming that right. Constitutional rights do not end at the borders of our publicly owned and operated university and college campuses. Students, like all responsible, law abiding citizens, have a God given right to protect themselves from harm anywhere in this state. As your governor and in keeping with the Libertarian philosophy, it would be the policy of my administration that no government entity shall deprive a citizen of their rights without due process and that the rights of private property owners shall be affirmed and protected.” Dr. Andrew T. Hunt

Doug Craig: The Man in the Freedom T-Shirt

OZY.com takes a look at the man behind the Libertarian Party of Georgia. We are proud to have Doug Craig as chairman of this movement.

Enter Doug Craig’s office.39648_DougCraig

Or rather, his warehouse. This sheet-metal manufacturing plant in Atlanta’s poor, urban Southside might seem like a strange place to find the architect of a third-party uprising, a spoiler of potentially national proportions. Yet here is Craig, wearing a black “Freedom” T-shirt hastily tucked into cargo shorts, warning me to avoid the close-by glass shards from a shattered television.

“I didn’t think of dressing up,” he says against the backdrop of whirrs and clangs and booms. “I’ve never been the type of politician to wear a suit and tie anyway.”

As the first-year chairman of the Libertarian Party of Georgia, Craig is understated: a portly man with an easy air and a large goatee. But he shouldn’t be underestimated. This year he’s anointed two candidates who stand a fair chance of spoiling two high-profile races and turning Georgia into a high-stakes battleground. Now, no one expects Andrew Hunt to become Georgia’s next governor, or Amanda Swafford to make it to the U.S. Senate. But should they live up to their poll numbers — between five and seven percent, regularly — they’ll likely force runoffs. (In Georgia, statewide races go into overtime if one candidate doesn’t capture 50 percent of the vote.)
