Some things shouldn't change. Like our Indiana heritage and values. Our pride in conservation and stewardship of the land. And the protection of our Second Amendment and hunting rights. We pass them from generation to generation, taking pride in our traditions.
But over his 36 years in Washington, Dick Lugar HAS changed...away from our shared values. He claimed to be a strong supporter of our rights when he first came to Washington. Now, he votes for gun bans (Senate Vote 375, 11/17/1993, Senate Vote 24, 03/02/2004). He's voted for a hunting ban (Vote 87, 4/12/1994). And he's voted against strengthening your right to defend yourself when you're traveling away from home. (Vote 237, 7/22/2009). He also voted to confirm both of Barack Obama's anti-gun nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court. (Vote 262, 8/6/2009 and Vote 229, 8/5/2010). He's become the only Republican candidate in Indiana with an "F" rating from the NRA.
