Former Ambassador Visits Hauppauge, Endorses Romney at Gun Conference

The Sportsman's Association for Firearms Education held its 2012 Civil Rights Conference on Sunday in Hauppauge, which featured John Bolton and Senate candidate Wendy Long as speakers.

Speaking at the Sheraton Long Island in Hauppauge, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton urged over 700 individuals at a gun rights conference to vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, calling current President Barack Obama's policies "an assault on our sovereignty," according to a Newsday report.

The Sunday conference, sponsored by the Sportsman's Association for Firearms Education, also featured Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Wendy Long, as well as several National Rife Association board members as speakers.

According to the Newsday report, the event – called the 2012 Civil Rights Conference – was organized to raise funds for the Commack-based group's legal defense fund. According to the group's website, several pieces of proposed and enacted legislation in New York State infringe upon the Second Amendment, granting individuals the right to bear arms.

Do you fear for your Second Amendment rights, or is more protection from handguns needed? Let us know in the comments.

Bolton is all kinds of awesome. He has a perfect bead on the terrorists and corruptocrats that infest Turtle Bay and is never shy about pointing out what maggots they are. Rudy G was just as plain spoken about those scofflaws that we foot most of the bill for. Go get 'em , John, and I hope Mitt installs you back at the UN, where you should bring an industrial-sized can of Raid.
