Republican candidate supports 2nd Amendment right to own nuclear weapons

North Carolina has become home to conservative extremists who seem to keep pushing the limits on outrageous. On Tuesday, voters will get to decide if Greg Brannon will be the next Republican to take gun freedom to the nuclear level.

Brannon is a physician and tea party candidate who will face 8 other Republicans in the North Carolina senate primary. What makes Brannon different is he is the only one who supports including nuclear weapons in 2nd Amendment gun rights.

Brannon is behind anti-LGBT candidate Thon Tillis, 40 to 28 percent in the latest polling, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Brannon can’t pull off an upset.

The winner of the North Carolina Republican primary will face incumbent Senator Kay Hagen, a Democrat who has so far maintained a narrow lead in the hotly contested race.

A Brannon victory could help Democrats keep control of the senate in 2014, since Brannon is considered too radical to win a statewide election.
