(RepublicanDaily.org) – Dr. Mehmet Oz, more commonly known just as Dr. Oz, is a celebrity doctor who has thrown his hat in the ring to contest the next US Senate election in Pennsylvania on a Republican ticket. Dr. Oz is popular among some Conservatives, but he has also been the subject of controversy in right-wing circles. Recently, some troubling revelations about his stance on gun control have come to light.
Articles credited to Dr. Oz between 2017 and 2019 appear to indicate the Republican candidate takes a dim view of the Second Amendment. While Oz insists he’s currently a staunch supporter of the right to bear arms, the articles express support for bans on assault weapons, buyback programs, licensing requirements, and waiting periods for the purchase of firearms.

Oz received a mention on the bylines of these articles alongside Dr. Michael Roizen, his business partner. Roizen has since claimed he contributed much more to the articles than Oz, and the inclusion of Oz’s name on some of the bylines was mistaken.
However, other key players aren’t buying it. Dave McCormick, who’s at the top of the Republican pack in Oz’s race, slammed the doctor’s uncertain position on gun rights.
