Party mourns passing of International Society for Individual Liberty President

Sub-Title: 

Offers gratitude for Miller's service in his work for more liberty

The Libertarian National Committee expresses our sorrow on the passing of Vince Miller, president of the International Society for Individual Liberty (ISIL).  His many accomplishments include the founding in 1980 of Libertarian International, which subsequently merged with the Society for Individual Liberty to become ISIL.  He was a champion of liberty and a good friend of the Libertarian Party; he labored tirelessly and well to build the freedom movement.

Obama, McCain don't get free passes on gun issue

Sub-Title: 

Both candidates share questionable past on gun rights

Presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain both share a spotty history on gun rights and should not be granted a free pass with their recent rhetoric, says the Libertarian Party.  "McCain and Obama are no friends to the Second Amendment, despite what they now say on the campaign trail," says Libertarian Party National Chairman William Redpath.

Republican Gun-Grabbers

McCain's tepid relationship with the NRA hasn't always been as smooth as McCain has tried to make it seem on the 2008 campaign trail.  Today's ruling on Heller and the response from McCain almost seems laughable given the tongue-lashing McCain has received in the past from gun rights advocates.
