Tennessee 7th Senatorial District - - Campfield or Walker?

With five weeks left until the election, it is time for Knoxville citizens to revisit these candidates' response to the Gun Rights Quiz. Stacey Campfield and Randy Walker are running for the 7th Tennessee Senate seat.

Their responses to the Gun Rights Quiz are listed for Campfield HERE, and for Walker HERE. You can click the links to see their responses.

Here is my brief analysis --

Campfield believes there is only one reasonable gun law, the Second Amendment. Walker was not specific, he simply restated his support for the right to keep and bear arms (makes me think of John Kerry).

When asked about Vermont style carry, meaning carrying with no permit required (Now legal in Vermont, Alaska, and Arizona), Campfield is agreeable. Walker said,
I am unfamiliar with the laws in the State of Vermont, but I do support Tennessee’s gun laws.
Walker was rather vague with all his answers, repeatedly stating his support for the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Campfield, on the other hand, has a voting record that shows a strong pattern of support for the individual right of self protection.

Campfield, also, has consistently shown his concern for the unborn citizen, through proposed legislation, and his voting record.

So, I recommend Campfield.
