STATEMENT OF CLARIFICATION FROM THE PIKES PEAK FIREARMS COALITION CANDIDATE FORUM
Last night at the Pikes Peak Firearms Coalition, Robert Blaha, candidate for the 5th Congressional District, and Congressman Doug Lamborn were asked about their position on the Supreme Court’s Heller Decision, among numerous other issues relating to 2nd Amendment rights.
“I’ve had a concealed carry permit for many years, and have been an active firearms enthusiast my entire life. My commitment to the 2nd Amendment is more than words; it’s backed by life-long activism and action.”
Blaha continues, “In the series of back and forth questions about the Heller decision and related legislation, I simply misspoke on the question of whether I supported the court’s decision. I support Heller, and more importantly, as I say consistently every time I am asked, I will be a strong voice and a fighter for our 2nd Amendment freedoms.”
As in all areas of Blaha’s platform for U.S. Congress, his lifestyle as a private citizen proves his advocacy and strongly reflects the conservative values he champions-chief among them, the right to bear arms.
Robert Blaha is a conservative Republican candidate for Colorado’s 5th Congressional District. Robert Blaha has thirty-five years of experience helping companies become more efficient, creating jobs and making a payroll.
