There are just three candidates that support legal ownership, possesion, use and citizen self-defense;
In alphabetical order...
Ron Paul (R)
Bill Richardson (D)
Fred Thompson (R)
The other candidates of note (e.g. real contenders) be they left, right , and there are no viable reps from the center, are either affirmed as being anti-gun/anti-2A (Hillary & Obama) or talk out the left side of their mouth on this specific subject whilst purporting themselves to stand amongst those of the right (Giuliani & Romney).
If 2A and gun control and crime and sporting use of firearms and lawful defense of self, property, and allowance to possess firearms in general or on your persons in specific are of any importance to ones self then the above three candidates are pretty much ones only reasonable and real choice.

Of the three I do not honestly believe any of them have a chance at winning nomination for the job of "Decider".
At best 2 of the 3 make for good VP material. :\

IMAO most of the candidates of the Democrat Party are weak prospects. I was raised to vote with the Dems and continued to do so until Bill Clinton ran and was elected. At that point in my life I began to question everything the party stood for and changed my affiliation. John Edwards embodies some of the worst things about the current platform of the DNC. Right to bear arms is a huge issue for me and I will vote for candidates who protect my rights to bear and to carry.
Do not be swayed by these comments from John Edwards. He will say and do anything that he thinks will get him elected. His comments on your rights only extend to what he thinks you want to hear and will change hourly so in a list of cantidates I put him almost at the bottom. At least I have faith that Hillary is at least honest when she says she want to take away our guns, Edwards will take it from you and then try to sell it back to you keeping the profit for himself.
No I think he had rather sue you to take your right away. That's how he made his bucks. He sat too close to the clippers when he got that $400 hair cut...he got some brain cells clipped.
