Gail Lightfoot on Gun Control
2000 Libertarian Challenger for Senate (CA)
A: YES. No registration of hand held arms or ammunition either. There is an absolute right to gun ownership
A Liberty Candidate will Defend the Great American Principles of Individual Liberty and Constitutional Government, [such as the views of] Rand Paul, Senate 2010 candidate from Kentucky, on Personal Liberty: "The Federal Government must return to its constitutionally enumerated powers and restore our inalienable rights. America can prosper, preserve personal liberty, and repel national security threats without intruding into the personal lives of its citizens."
And [such as the views of] Chris Cantwell, Congress 2010 candidate from New York on the 2nd Amendment: " 'To keep and bear Arms.' That means, you can obtain them, keep them, and carry them. The idea that you can only have an unloaded gun in your closet under lock and key with the ammunition in a foreign country is ridiculous. Load your gun, put it in your holster, and leave the house. There is no point to keeping a gun you cannot access when you need it. If anyone has time to go home and get their gun, they probably didnít need it in the first place."
