Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon

Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon has been endorsed by the NRA Political Victory Fund for the June 4th Republican primary in the 13th legislative district.

In an email to their members in the 13th district, NRA-PV said,

“Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon is rated “A” by the NRA-PVF and has been a proven Second Amendment supporter throughout his tenure in the state legislature.  He has been vocal in his support of your Second Amendment rights and has stood strong against anti-gun lawmakers pushing their radical agenda in Trenton.  Declan O’Scanlon has stood by gun owners in New Jersey by consistently voting against onerous gun proposals, including sweeping ammunition bans, magazine capacity restrictions, one-gun-a-month limitation, and more.

On Election Day, remember your gun rights are at stake and Vote Freedom First by voting to reelect Declan O’Scanlon for Assemblyman in District 13.”

O’Scanlon welcomed the endorsement as a confirmation of his conservative credentials by “one of the most effective advocacy groups in the nation.”

“This is confirmation that my opponents have be lying about my record and confirmation that my opponents have no integrity,”O’Scanlon said, “The NRA knows enough to say away from my opponents,

“As the only candidate endorsed by the NRA-PV in the district, I enthusiastically endorse Senator Joe Kyrillos and Assemblywoman Amy Handlin.”

Barbara Gonzalez, co-founder of the Bayshore Tea Party Group which is supporting O’Scanlon’s opponents in the primary did not respond to a request for comment.


Gonzalez responded to MMM late last evening, declining to comment. “Nope….your blog has become trashy.  Just….nope,” she wrote.

    Not only is Declan a fiscal conservative, but he’s top notch with the NRA.

    But of course Babs would not respond when the truth was put in front of her face. This of course takes a primary issue off of the table for the Tea Party people and shows that they are frauds.

    The “Ugly McNasties” Truth

    You are all idiots. I have even commented that he had an A rating from the NRA. There are many more issues, as a matter of fact I have been critized for being focused on the horrible gun control bills passing the legislature. But then again why would you let facts get in the way of anything you say.

  3. Congrats Declan... said at 11:21 pm on May 30th, 2013:

    On your well deserved endorsement! Vote Kyrillos-Handlin-O’Scanlon-Golden-Arnone and DiMaso in the June 4 GOP Primary!

    Yes, why would you let facts get in the way like reduced spending under Republicans; facts like the BSTPG candidates lying about Declan’s record.

    Art, I must agree with Barbara that some blogging here has become trashy. Helene, a former candidate for the Middletown School Board, seems enamored with the word “eunuch” and calls men who disagree with her the “e” word.

    Looks like the NRA just ended this farce of a primary.

    You used one of the few terms that are banned here. Rephrase your question, please.

    I agree with Helene.

    Foor some of you RINO’s that wouldn’t know a constitution if it hit you in the face. Helene has more class in her little finger than most have in their entire body.

    As for Declan, it’s no secret that he gets an A from the NRA. The question you all should be asking is, what elese does he stand for? Does he ever get out in front on real issues? Issues that will deliver back to you and I, Freedom and Liberty. Or will he go along to get along in the GOP?

    Like Joe, he’s a nice guy but, we don’t need nice right now, we need constitutional fortitude. Where has he been hiding that the past few years?

    What other issues? Like cutting taxes and controlling spending? Yup, Declan has done that. Like working against union requirements and forced contributions? Yeah, he’s on that too. Or like downsizing government and advocating for shared services? Gee, he’s lead that fight. So what else would you like? You Bayshore phonies were all over the gun issue, but now that he’s backed by the NRA you’re grasping at straws. You looked sad then, but now it’s just pathetic.

    All Bayshore Group has done is help O’Scanlon gain even more standing and goodwill for the fight he has taken to these guys on behalf of the Monmouth Republicans.
