    On April 15, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) said he is trying to find the “right balance” between gun rights and gun control.

    He apparently wants to keep from going as far as Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and other GOP presidential hopefuls went at the NRA convention in Nashville. He appears to be seeking, instead, a “centrist” approach that allows him to appease both pro-Second Amendment and pro-gun control voters.

    According to Politico, Christie was speaking to voters in Manchester, New Hampshire, when he turned to the issues of guns. He said, “We’ve got to make sure we have public safety, but on the other hand we have to protect people’s rights both as sportsmen and hunters and for self protection too, find the right balance.”

    On Monday, Reps. Diane Black (R-Tenn-6) and Ted Poe (R-TX-2) introduced a bill to end the ATF’s practice of trying to ascertain the race of firearm purchasers via background checks.

    ATF form 4473 currently asks would-be purchasers to identity their race and ethnicity at part of a background check.

    According to The Hill, the ATF changed their background check forms so as to inquire about race and ethnicity in 2012. They have been “collecting this information” ever since, but claim they have “never compiled it in any database.”

    General George S. Patton had the highest praise for the semi-automatic rifle designed by John C. Garand and adopted by the U.S. Army in 1936. A generation of young Americans literally saved the world from unspeakable evil—one eight-round en bloc clip at a time—with this rifle.

    General Patton wrote a letter to Springfield Armory that has given us one of the most memorable gun quotes of all time: “In my opinion, the M1 rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.” The other maker of the Garand besides Springfield during World War II was the Winchester Repeating Arms Co., who, thanks to Patton’s high praise, decided to do something about it. Winchester built a Garand specifically for Patton, put a nice piece of walnut on it and had all the metal components chrome-plated. Winchester didn’t have to do this; as a private company, Winchester spent its own money to create a very special presentation rifle for one of the greatest combat generals America has ever produced.

    Breitbart News recently had the opportunity to talk with Louisiana Governor and presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal (R) about guns and gun rights. He explained that “the left are bullies” opposed to armed citizens and religious liberty.

    We began by asking Jindal about the importance of the Second Amendment, and he said:

    "The Second Amendment is important for various reasons. I like to list three.

    First, the Founding Fathers were smart enough to know that the American people need to have the right to bear arms for self-defense. They wrote the Second Amendment with the knowledge that a well-armed colonial citizenry had just defeated a tyrant and the most powerful army in the world, in the British army. So the most basic reason for the Second Amendment is our own self-defense."

    On April 9, Breitbart News had the opportunity to talk with Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) about guns and gun rights, and he told us that the Second Amendment “serves as a fundamental check on government tyranny.”

    Cruz answered a question about the importance of the Second Amendment:

    Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story described the Second Amendment as the palladium of our liberties. It is foundation to free men and free women being able to defend their homes, their families, their lives and liberty, and it also serves as a fundamental check on government tyranny.

    As a follow-up to the first question, Breitbart News then asked why guns are important for free people?
