Jack Ryan on Gun Control


Fight to protect constitutional guarantee of gun rights

    I will focus on three main issues while fighting to protect the constitutionally guaranteed gun rights of American citizens:
  1. Work to guarantee that Washington recognizes the 2nd Amendment is an individual right under the Constitution; Law abiding citizens that choose to own guns should not be punished for the transgressions of criminals. People who break existing gun laws should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
  2. Work with law enforcement officials and the courts to toughen penalties on criminals who commit crimes with a gun;In Chicago, gun ownership is banned, but yet the city has one of the highest murder rates in the country. We need to toughen penalties on criminals who commit crimes with guns.
  3. Support efforts that keep guns from persons who should not have them;Technologically advanced programs such as the National Instant Check System (NICS) should be supported instead of more ineffective regulations.

Fight to protect constitutional guarantee of gun rights

One of my duties as a US Senator from Illinois will be to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States, and that includes defending the 2nd Amendment from those who wish to dilute its meaning.
