SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS
I will preserve our constitutional right to bear arms. The constitution says the right to bear arms shall not be infringed upon.
Our constitution guarantees our right to protect and defend ourselves from harm. We must maintain that right. Our right to carry arms symbolizes our liberty and allows us to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government. Any law that is infringing the right to bear arms should be repealed.
Red flag laws are unconstitutional. All people have the right to due process. If a court deems a person, mentally unstable and unable to own a firearm, that is proper process. There are several issues about protecting the right to bear arms.
Basic safety for states such as Alaska, and for those who live in rural areas of the US, including North Carolina use guns for safety from animals, and armed thieves, who if they had no defense would not have time to wait for police to arrive.
As stated in the constitution, “A well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state,” I believe if we do not have the right to bear arms, we will no longer be a free country. If you talk to any immigrant coming from a communist country, they will tell you that the people do not have guns. We must protect this right.
Those who are breaking laws with guns are going to break laws with guns if they are made entirely illegal. Criminals will get guns illegally. We must protect the law-abiding citizens’ right to defend themselves.
