I recently saw candidate Brad Raffensperger, who is running for Secretary of State, speak to a TEA party group at the local VFW post. He was solidly pro-gun, and there were several questions from the audience about gun control proposals. I doubt as S.o.S. he'll have much power to influence gun law policy, but as a former State representative in the House, he's got a lot of friends in the legislature. And, although he denies ambitions of a higher level office in the future, who knows? 10 or 20 years from now he could be Governor, a U.S. Senator, etc.
