Kristin Davis, Warren Redlich on gun rights

Posted at Libertarian Blue:

Currently among the two major parties the selection of pro liberty candidates is pretty slim. Both Andrew Cuomo and Rick Lazio are well known gun grabbers and at this time I can’t find any information on potential Democrat candidate Steve Levy in regards to gun rights. Other candidates with unknown gun rights positions include [Kristin] Davis who is seeking the Libertarian nomination and Carl Paladino a potential Independent candidate being drafted by a Buffalo based Tea Party group.

Don’t fret fellow New Yorkers there is one candidate so far that is committed to the right to bear arms and his name is Warren Redlich. David Codrea a gun rights writer for Examiner.com has put out a simple questionnaire for gun owners to ask politicians who want their support. Redlich was kind enough to provide answers to the questionnaire and it shows that Redlich is committed to the Second Amendment for all New York citizens.

Answers to the questionnaire are here

On Tuesday, the Daily Caller profiled the newest entrant into the New York Governor’s race: Libertarian candidate and former madame, Kristin Davis. Here’s a quick description of her:

Davis built the most successful escort service in world history. She had more than 100 girls and operated in 5 countries, with a call center in Uruguay. She could dispatch a $1,000-plus-an-hour call girl to a hotel or residence in Paris, Berlin, Gstaad, Rome, New York, L.A., Miami, Dubai, Montreal or elsewhere within minutes. She personally recruited her girls at bars, clubs, resorts and restaurants.

Davis claimed that the former governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer, was her service’s most famous client and she spent four months in prison after the Spitzer scandal broke.

In the interview, Davis discusses her libertarian platform, her ideas about legalizing pot and prostitution and her relationship with Roger Stone, a Spitzer nemesis who was suspected of setting up the former governor and now serves as the primary backer of the Davis campaign. When the Daily Caller asks Davis whether she can really get her name on the ballot in New York, Davis says she is “confident.”

I’m a Libertarian. Barry Goldwater is a personal hero. I believe in free men, free women and free markets. I distrust government. I believe in the individual. I think a woman must control her own body when it comes to abortion or choosing to rent it for an hour. I like Ron Paul and much of what he stands for. I support gun rights…

Either way I an confident that I can collect more than enough signatures from cadres of escorts, ex-escorts, strippers, dancers, dommes, gays, lesbians, Libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, U.S. Marines, rappers who revere the pimp or other lovers of freedom moving my petitions under the direction of my communications consultant Frank Morano.

(Emphasis added).

Ballot Access News reports that Davis will attend the New York Libertarian Party convention in Albany on April 23-24, and says she has not yet decided whether she will run as a Personal Freedom Party candidate or a Libertarian. Previous stories stated that she had settled on the Personal Freedom Label, while earlier stories said she would run as an independent and, before that, as a Libertarian.

Redlich is running for the Republican and Libertarian nominations, and has described himself as a “Tea Party” candidate on his website.

    I really wish Davis would run for Lieutenant Governor on the LP line and Redlich run at the top of the ticket.

    Two good candidates and a big tent. They could work two separate angles to pull in a bigger vote.

  2. Andrew Miller

    Kristin Davis is a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and gun owners rights. She favors repeal of New York’s current anti-gun laws.

    Davis also has raisd $400,000 for her campaign. Where does Warren Redlich plan to get money?

    Only Davis can get the LP 50,000 votes. She has already reaped more publicity in the first two weeks of her campaign then Rick Lazio

  3. Eric Dondero

    You know, that’s rather a brillant suggestion.

    Both Warren and Kristin are fantastic candidates. Kristin’s got the celeb status and the pizzaz; Warren’s got the steady intellectualism, and gravitas as an attorney and elected city councilman.

    If the New York Libertarians were smart they’d figure out someway to get these two together on the same ticket.

    Warren, you gotta realize you ain’t got the pizzaz factor.

    Kristin you gotta admit that many will not take your candidacy seriously.

    But together, it’d be a knockout one-two punch.

    Are you the same Andrew Miller listed here?

    I see here http://kristindavis2010.com/home that the campaign prefers the “personal freedom party” label, then lower down on the same page she is described in the media advisory as an “independent candidate.”

    I saw in one of Kristin’s releases or interviews that she agrees with about 80% of the Libertarian Party platform. I would be curious to know in general terms which 80% she agrees with and which 20% she disagrees with.

    Like Imp and Dondero, I think a joint ticket would be great, but would either candidate be humble enough to give up the top spot?
