In Support of Gun Rights
I support gun rights and the Second Amendment.
Proponents of restricting our freedoms bear a heavy burden of showing the necessity, propriety, and wisdom of their proposed regulations. Yet gun-control measures have repeatedly failed to reduce violent crime or criminals' access to guns. Instead, they simply burden law-abiding gun-owners and prospective gun-owners.
Gun violence and violent crimes have declined dramatically over the last two decades. If we want to reduce gun violence and violent crime further, the first place to look is at our drug laws. Just as the Prohibition Era was time of organized crime and gun violence, so today has our War on Drugs produced well-financed, well-armed, violent gangs and organized criminal enterprises. Before we even think about burdening our law-abiding gun-owners with ineffective regulations and intrusions, we should reform our drug laws to put an end to this self-inflicted madness.
I object to gun-control advocates who rhetorically and falsely equate "gun culture" with a "culture of violence." This is extremely misleading.
I also object to the Republican Party's attempts to get the information of all concealed-carry permit holders in Virginia. Republicans claim to be in favor of freedom, gun rights, and privacy, but this once again shows that the Republican Party's self-interest comes before the rights of the people.
In contrast, I support Constitutional Carry, which several states already recognize without harm to the safety of their citizens.

The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us....There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! ...The war is inevitable–and let it come!

Google is your friend. Not that you really needed it this time... you know it's not a Democrat, and you know it's not a Republican, that pretty much only leaves the Libertarian.
Could I just not find it or is there no link/menu option to that page from the rest of his site? Found the tax, school, drug and gay rights stuff but no "direct" link to his gun views.. .. I was just looking over his site to see what else they were advertising. It's left me a little confused and disheartened.
ETA: Here's the list of pages it found on the site:
