John Featherman on Gun Control

2000 Libertarian Challenger for Senate (PA)


Second Amendment has conditions

The gun debate is not a black and white issue, but it's been turned into a "you're with us or you're against us." The Second Amendment should be interpreted to allow people to have the right to bear arms, but only under certain "conditions": the right to keep and bear arms for lawful purposes; hunting and sport, and self-protection. Law-abiding gun owners should not be under attack. Conversely, we must protect the public from the onslaught of illegal weapons and random acts of gun violence.

No lawsuit immunity for gun manufacturers

I do not support gun manufactures from having 100% immunity from lawsuits. As an example, if a gun manufacturer knows or has reason to believe that a dealer is in fact a "straw dealer" and still continues to sell guns to them, I believe the manufacturer should be liable.
