...Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. A firearm is not an instrument of death, it’s an instrument of protection.
ISSUE: Second Amendment
For quite some time many in our government have worked to create ways to undermine our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The logic varies, but all try to convey a notion that somehow gun laws reduce gun violence. Even if that were true—it’s never been true—once all the guns had been purged from society, Congress would have to get to work removing baseball bats and kitchen knives. The weapon is never the source of the violence.
The best way to control guns in the hands of criminals, is to put guns into the hands of honest people around them. The right to keep and bear arms is a right to carry a loaded weapon, openly or concealed. It is not merely the right to have a firearm in the nightstand, next to your bed.
