Gun-grabbers whose ultimate goal is to abolish the Second Amendment routinely ignore two important realities…
- The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, and…
- When seconds count, first responders are only minutes away
This is not a criticism of police officers. They put their lives on the line every single day to protect us. But they simply can’t be everywhere all the time…unless you’re a high elected official or a Hollywood star who can afford personal bodyguards.
For the rest of us, when confronted by a bad guy with a gun – in church, at an event, on the street or in our own homes – first responders can get there too late. We need, deserve and have a right to an IMMEDIATE response.
Indeed, the right to defend yourself and your family isn’t just your constitutional right; it’s a God-given right. A right that has nothing to do with hunting or target-shooting. It’s about self-defense, period.
And every time I hear a gun-grabber ask, “Why do you need a weapon like that?” – the simple answer is: To defend myself and my family against a bad guy who has a similar weapon.
The simple fact is, no gun control law or background check system in the world is going to stop criminals and crazy people from getting their hands on guns if they are truly intent on doing so. That’s why the Second Amendment individual right to keep and bear arms needs to be defended without compromise.
And that’s why my top gun rights priority in the House of Representatives will be the passage of a national concealed carry reciprocity law that will allow you to protect yourself and your loved ones while traveling from one state to another.
We can do better. We should do better. We MUST do better.
