Kurt has not replied to my inquiry. Not even to acknowledge it. take from that what you will.
Just received the following reply from Alice Turner, Kurt Wilson's communications director. As promised, I am posting it verbatim.
Dear Mr. Hiten,
Thank you for reaching our to Kurt Wilson regarding his position on the 2nd Amendment and gun rights. Please find below, answers to your questions in italics. We appreciate your interest in Kurt, and would welcome your support for his candidacy for Congress in the 6th District of Georgia.
Please let me know if I can answer any other questions you may have.
Many thanks again for reaching out.
What are your thoughts on the "Heller" decision and how Congress can impact that decision.
I support the Heller decision and any initiatives that support strict interpretation of the 2nd Amendment.
Georgia is a "shall issue" state. Should all states be "shall issue", "may issue", or continue with the mix we have now? Why?
I believe these decisions should be made by the states, and according to the 2nd amendment.
What is your position on gun-free zones? What specific areas should or should not be off limits to licensed carry permit holders? I am particularly interested in your answers and thoughts regarding government buildings, public parks, college campuses, and public transportation.
I believe citizens should have the right to carry guns, as indicated in the constitution.
What is your position on national carry permit reciprocity?
This type of program gives the federal government too much access to gun holders. I support all citizens enjoying the freedoms granted by the 2nd Amendment.
What is your position on "Constitutional Carry"? By this I mean all persons not prohibited to own a firearm may carry that firearm without a license from the state.
Again, I believe citizens should enjoy the right to bear arms as spelled out in the 2nd Amendment. I believe the 2nd Amendment gives citizens that right to carry outright.
What is your position on the "Hearing Protection Act" and other NFA reform measures?
I am in favor of less taxes. So tax rebates on silencers is favorable to me.
What do you see as the proper role of the BATFE and other Federal agencies regarding the Second Amendment?
Federal agencies mean a larger bureaucracy, where decisions are made by individuals who aren't elected by citizens and yield too much power. So, it would be best for federal agencies to yield less influence as it relates to citizen gun rights.
Is there anything else you wish to tell me and our members regarding your position on the Second Amendment and gun rights in general?
I am a constitutionalist, and believe in the strict interpretation of the 2nd Amendment.
