Gun Control

I am a firm believer that the second amendment should be interpreted to say that because a militia MAY be needed, regular citizens should be well armed in case they are called to form one in the defense of our country from invaders.

I am in favor of recent attempts to make concealed carry easier for law-abiding citizens. I am also in favor of attempts to make open carry lawful.

While it is true that a criminal bent on carrying out a violent crime can surely find an illegal weapon with a little effort and sufficient funds, I am still in favor of background checks to TRY and keep guns out of the hands of violent offenders and the mentally ill.
