I fully support the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that protects your right to keep and bear arms. Unfortunately, many opponents of the Second Amendment exploit tragedies to advance gun control legislation, mistakenly believing that new gun laws will reduce crime and prevent future tragedies.
It is no coincidence that many of the cities in the United States with the strictest gun-control laws also have very high violent crime rates. Disarming law-abiding citizens does not prevent criminal activity, and additional laws do not prevent criminals from obtaining guns. I will oppose all efforts that attempt to water down your Second Amendment rights, and I support strictly enforcing existing laws that severely punish violent criminals who possess illegally obtained firearms.
