Anyone but Mitt Romney would be nice for Sec. of State, however that doesn’t necessarily mean General Petraeus is the right choice also. You’re going to want to read this.

My issue with Petraeus has nothing to do with his Hillary-lite misuse of classified documents he gave to his harlot so she could write a biography about him. Though why she needed classified information that couldn’t be in the book to begin with is a bit of a head scratcher.
No, my issue with Petraeus is that he is as VOCALLY anti-gun as Romney was anti-Trump.
The only reason that that fact has gone under the radar is that Petraeus spent most of professional life in jobs that focused outward from the United States. Be it in the military as a General running a war or as the director of the CIA playing cloak and dagger with foreign powers.
And yes, the Secretary of State is the President’s Ambassador to the World so its not like he would have much of a say on domestic affairs…BUT he would be representing this country and I have a serious concern having yet another anti-2nd Amendment gun grabber being the face of our diplomatic wing of government.
Where is this all coming from?
General Petraeus has teamed up with Mark Kelly and his radical anti gun wife Gabrielle Giffords to co-found the “Veterans Coalition for Common Sense.” Namely an organization that tries to use this country’s love and respect for its veterans to shred and disregard the Bill of Rights that those same veterans sacrificed so much for in order to defend.
Chairman of Gun Owners of America Tim Macy explains in a letter:
As Secretary of State, Petraeus would play a key role in deciding whether to remove the U.S. from the UN Arms Trade Treaty (UN ATT). This agreement would mandate gun registration, and would authorize comprehensive gun bans — all goals supported by Petraeus’ colleagues Kelly and Giffords.
Petraeus would effectively decide whether to push for ratification of the anti-gun UN Small Arms Treaty.
Finally, Petraeus would have jurisdiction over the international trade (ITAR) regulations. Under Clinton/Kerry “guidance,” these regulations have been expanded to outlaw gunsmithing. In addition, a gun technician who communicates “how-to” information about guns on the Internet (without purchasing a $2,250 State Department license) could be prosecuted and imprisoned.
