2nd Amendment Question

Tell me what you will do about the 2nd Amendment and what related issues are pending for this session.

A: Fred C. Cox
Short answer: Defend it.

"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 agree that the right to keep and bear arms is not tied to a militia, it was also to allow us to protect us as families & individuals. The 2nd amendment protects us not only at the federal level, but the state level. Some recent court decisions have helped.


I agree that the commerce clause has been abused by the Federal government, and that the concept of guns and ammo being made and used in a state and therefore not regulated by the federal government is a good step. I would have voted for that on the state level.

In too many cases, the federal government has been ignoring the US constitution and trying to take away [the] rights and powers left to the states and the people. In some cases the states are doing it, and there is a real concern that the international community will continue to try to take away our rights.

Rep. Carl Wimmer has 2 bill requests on this subject, but I have not seen them.
