Jim Wallace, Executive Director of the Gun Owners Action League (GOAL) headlined a town-hall forum on the Second Amendment, sponsored by Sandi Martinez, candidate for State Senate in the Third Middlesex District. GOAL is the official state firearms association in Massachusetts. They are an association of law-abiding citizens who believe in the basic right of firearms ownership for competition, recreation and self-protection.
GOAL has released its ratings for the candidates running in Massachusetts in 2010 and Sandi received a perfect 100% rating along with the endorsement of the organization. This is a testament to Sandi Martinez's commitment to the principles of our Founding Fathers.
"I have always been enthralled by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in particular" said Martinez. "It is interesting to see how people often misinterpret the 2nd amendment as a right of the government, rather than a right of the citizen." She continued: "I really appreciate the recognition from this organization which is dedicated to protecting the citizen's rights under the Constitution and to the safe handling of legal firearms."
