Second Amendment

I fully support the second amendment to the Bill of Rights. I am a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) of America.

Bill of Rights Amendment II

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

I will support the Federal Government’s acknowledgment of the importance of the Second Amendment which assures every citizen the right to be armed, trained, ready and willing to create an army, much like the Minute Men during the Revolutionary War, to protect the sovereignty of the people and of the nation. I will expect our bodies of government to honor and protect this important amendment which gives every citizen the right to bear arms. This right should not be restricted by legislation limiting raw materials to create the weapons or the ammunition needed for those weapons. I will offer strong legislation removing the right to bear arms from those who have broken the laws of our land and those who have been a danger to society because of mental illness or psychological problems that endanger the lives or security of citizens. I also expect appropriate prison terms for anyone who violates our nation’s trust by abusing the right provided by the second amendment. I will expect the concern to focus on the criminal, NOT on the Second Amendment.

I will support the right of citizens to protect their family, property, neighbors, and self without being prosecuted provided it was a defensive necessity.
