"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." Gun laws don't deter criminals, but they do disarm law-abiding citizens. This makes them easier targets, easier to attack, and eventually leads to the end of individual freedom. Thomas Paine said, "Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property." Somerville will fight to keep and protect our Second Amendment rights.
