RALEIGH – Mark Robinson shot to fame with a rousing speech in defense of the Second Amendment at a Greensboro City Council meeting. It’s only fitting then that the conservative candidate for lieutenant governor has earned the enthusiastic endorsement of Gun Owners of America.
Tim Macy, chairman of Gun Owners of America, stated, “We all remember the impassioned speech given by Mr. Robinson at the Greensboro City Council meeting. His ‘I’m the majority’ speech reverberated across the country, and launched Mr. Robinson down a path of advocating for and defending the Second Amendment on a national scale.
“Mark Robinson, who is a GOA life member, has promised to give ‘not one inch on the Second Amendment,’ and defend our God-given right to keep and bear arms. GOA is glad to be able to support him in taking this position to the North Carolina State Government.”
In an atmosphere where equivocating is common, Mark Robinson is a breath of fresh air. Hearing him speak, one can feel that Robinson believes what he says down to his very core, as any audience will feel his booming oratory in their core.
Robinson’s committment to first principles demonstrates a comprehensive understanding of what Individual Liberty and Individual Rights — the American Idea — really means. He understands that the same tenets that make the Second Amendment sacrosanct also hold up the others, and that the right to bear arms is part of ‘securing these blessings of liberty.’
Polling shows Robinson in the lead over Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor Yvonne Lewis, but he isn’t slowing down in the least. As he travels the state to build support you can follow his campaign here.
