The GOP finally makes a platform statement,,,

Click here please,,,

Not being a very politically savvy animal,,,
Is this platform statement a large deviation from the GOP norm?

No, it seems pretty consistent with their previous positions.

It was nice to see that not restricting ammunition sales was specifically mentioned since I fear that may be on the table in the future. One strategy to discourage gun ownership is to make obtaining ammunition more difficult either through regulatory restrictions and/or increased taxes.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

While not a new stance...

It is the first time we are seeing them write and put forward as a party what many of the individual members have been saying for a while.
