Congresswoman Michele Bachmann released the following statement today reaffirming her support for the Second Amendment.

"I have been traveling across Minnesota's Sixth District listening to my constituents' feedback on gun control. They overwhelmingly support the Second Amendment and are worried about the limitation of their Constitutional rights. As an unwavering defender of the Second Amendment, I support the Constitutional right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.

"How to make our society safer and stronger is an important discussion. To prevent future tragedies we must address the underlying causes of violence and understand why perpetrators do these unthinkably evil acts. The focus needs to be on making our homes, schools, and streets safer--not advancing a political gun control agenda."
