Bob was a dear family friend. He had many a Sunday dinner at our house. He had a great sense of humor and a bitingly sarcastic wit. We have lost a true and great American.
he always seemed like a good guy and I did not remember any of his political errors

Norm MacDonald did some great impressions of him on SNL

That’s too bad and all, but given all that Trump exposed when he pulled back the curtain for a brief view of what really goes on in politics, I really won’t loose any sleep over his passing.
He was the ONLY previous GOP nominee to endorse Trump. Given the back stabbing some of our prior presidents on "our side" did, endorsment was an impressive and courageous act to do alone. No man is perfect, but beyond a few pieces of legislation, I know of no glaring political faults.

RIP regardless of his screw-up on gun-control. He was an American soldier and essentially a war hero who was crippled in WWII while saving a fellow soldier in Germany.

I agree, Bob Dole was a politician with little to no controversy. RIP.

But apparently he had a big role in getting the Brady Bill passed, interesting read. https://www.gunowners.org/nws9402/
He also supported Clinton era gun control attempts such as govt. gun buy backs and warrantless "sweeps" for firearms in Chicago.
Like many establishment Republicans, Dole was not 100% on the side of the 2A.
