Robert Graham’s Statement on President Obama’s Recent Gun Proposals

PHOENIX — ”The recent tragedies that occurred in Colorado, Connecticut, and most recently California have shaken our communities. I grieve with the families and victims of these senseless acts of violence. Unfortunately, these acts have reminded us that evil will always exist in our world.”

“While I share the grief of the victims and have difficulty understanding these tragedies, I believe it is important that we have a deliberate and thoughtful discussion about preserving the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans in our society. Outright bans have never and will never solve the violence that plagues our society. Instead, we need to have a discussion on the real issues that lead to these tragedies.”

“The Supreme Court has continued to rule that the Second Amendment unequivocally protects an individual’s “Right to Bear Arms.” Unfortunately, President Obama and his allies in the anti-gun establishment are using the recent tragedies to advance a political agenda that will infringe on the Constitutional rights of responsible gun owners.”

“As it was recently reported, President Obama is currently considering circumventing the Constitution and bypassing Congress by enacting a series of Executive Orders to unlawfully enact the Left’s radical agenda. I am strongly opposed to this effort and believe that the President should follow the legal and Constitutional legislative process and have this public debate in the halls of Congress – with all parties and stakeholders present.”

“I would remind the President that the recent tragedies do not represent another crisis that should be exploited, but rather see this as an opportunity to have an adult conversation about the proper role of firearms in our society while protecting the rights we as Americans hold dearly.”

“I will continue to support Second Amendment rights, and I urge our elected leaders, especially President Obama, to have a thorough and open discussion that follows the legislative process and is not enacted through a series of closed door Executive Orders.”

  1. Have you gotten the rest of the debate from Tuesday night? Why was only half released by the LD’s?

    Doug little is foolish. Almost all executive orders are President’s trying to make law on their own and by pass Congress. This pathetic Congress with their tail between their legs refuses to stop Obama.

    We need someone as strong as Robert Graham to get to work for the party and will stand up for our state and Party and not cow tow to Obama, like Little thinks is “Really not that bad”. What a joke Little is in his own words.

  3. Send the links to the unedited video. We don’t have them.

    I have no idea who Doug Little is. I have never heard of Doug Little until he jumped into the race. To this day, I still don’t know who is supporters are or if anyone or any group prompted him to get into the race. Not having been on staff with the AZGOP since September 30th, I am not privy to the conversations taking place regarding candidates for AZGOP chairman.

    I was told that Ron Paul supporters are behind Doug Little but cannot find any proof of that.

    I do know Robert Graham because I met him early in the 2010 gubernatorial race and got to know him. I also take full credit for suggesting and recruiting Robert to run for AZGOP Chairman in 2011 – even before Tom Morrissey even announced to run (this was after Bruce Ash dropped out of the race)

    And finally, I am grateful to Tom Morrissey for bringing me on as part of the 2011-2012 communication team.

    Given what I know about all the candidates, IF I were a State Committeeman (I was not elected in LD-25) I would be voting for Robert Graham.

      Shane, I’m a Ron Paul supporter and I do not support Doug Little nor have I heard of any movement for Ron Paul supporters to endorse Doug Little.

  4. What a fool Doug Little is! Not a big deal, he says? Did he read Obama’s 23 executive orders?! As someone who founded his own Armed Personal Defense small business, you’d think he’d be a little more concerned than NOT AT ALL about Obama’s anti-gun executive orders. At least Robert Graham understands Obama’s power grab on our second amendment rights. Robert Graham is what our party needs to move forward, raise money, and keep conservatives elected. If Doug Little is voted in, it will be more of the same and the party will continue to disintegrate as it has under Morrissey. If certain GOP members care at all about getting conservatives elected, they should quit playing shenanigans and allow a true leader like Robert to lead the way. I only wish I had a vote or proxy this weekend. State committeemen, please do the right thing and elect Robert for the good of the people and for the good of the future of the party! If Doug is elected, we may as well say hello to our new blue state, because we’ll surely hand it right over to the Dem’s.

  5. Atilla's Hunni says:

    Shane,

    America Freedom by Barbara, has the video posted now. Doug is talking about extremes on immigration. It was edited out. Where she got it from I do not know.

  6. AnObservation says:

    It is apparent to me now that Doug Little is a communist fellow traveler.

  7. You can watch the videos at Doug Little’s campaign web site.

    The Executive Orders were a joke?

    I will be voting for Doug Little.

    Why? Because I’ve sent communications to Graham that have been ignored. Doug, by contrast, responds.

    I’ve read everything I can about Graham and it seems to me a lot of his claims of accomplishment are puffery. Little’s claims of accomplishment seem more real.

    And while I respect many who have endorsed Graham, I suspect some don’t know the full story.

    If slick mailers and banners and flyers and buttons were what win elections, then Graham will win. But what wins is an informed electorate, and I hope all state committeemen do their own due diligence before voting.

    I’m told Graham didn’t even know what VoterVault was and never had a user account. He’s only been a PC since 2010, but claims a long career as a “Party activist.”

    As I said, I hope all state committeemen read everything they can about both candidates. And watch the videos of the debates.

    Then pray for wisdom before voting.

    I’ll support whomever wins to help grow our Party to 100% strength in the precincts.

    Thank you.

  8. Don’t know how that question mark got in there.

    Meant to type:

    The Executive Orders were a joke.

    Thank you.
