Holy hypocrisy, Batman! Allen Clifton, writing for something called Forward Progressives, thinks he’s caught the Texas Senator and presidential candidate in a whopper of a double standard. Second Amendment absolutist Cruz opposes background checks for firearms purchases. And as part of his campaign, one lucky supporter will win be selected to enjoy and afternoon of shooting with Sentor Ted . . .
But OMG!…the contest’s fine print says the campaign reserves the right to run a background check on the winner.
No biggie, right? Or is it? If you’re opposed to the .gov issuing permission slips to exercise an enumerated right, is it a contradiction for a campaign to check on who they allow near the candidate with a firearm? Or is that just good sense?
