Ron Crumpton on Gun Control

 

 


Absolute right to gun ownership, with exceptions

Q: Do you agree or disagree with the statement, "Absolute right to gun ownership"?

A: Agree. That does not exclude background checks, and does not include criminals, suspected terrorists, or those suffering from mental illness.

Strict interpretation of the Second Amendment

Many factors determine where you stand on an issue. My first question with any issue is what does the constitution have say. In the case of guns, the second amendment is clear, `the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.`

A strict interpretation of this amendment would prevent the government from lawfully passing any legislation or issuing any executive order limiting the rights of gun owners. I support this interpretation of our constitution and I will always vote to support private gun ownership.

Furthermore, it does not make sense for us to violate these rights of gun owners when it will only create an illegal market for existing guns and accessories. A legal market for firearms is far superior to an illegal one. The right to self-protection is supreme. Taking guns from law-abiding citizens benefits criminals and jeopardizes that right.

Supports restrictions on right to bear arms.

Crumpton supports the CC survey question on Second Amendment

The Christian Coalition Voter Guide inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Further Restrictions on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms' The Christian Coalition notes, "You can help make sure that voters have the facts BEFORE they cast their votes. We have surveyed candidates in the most competitive congressional races on the issues that are important to conservatives."
