Chase Oliver on Gun Control



No new gun restrictions; repeal existing restrictions

CHAMPIONING GUN RIGHTS FOR ALL: I support the right of every person to defend themselves from violence and aggression. I will not support any new gun restrictions and will look to repeal the restrictions that exist today. Gun control throughout our history has been used to limit the ability of vulnerable populations to defend themselves. Armed people are harder to oppress and harder to attack.

Pink Pistols: no red flag laws; no gun confiscation

Q: Balancing constitutional rights, what can be done to address mass shootings and gun violence?

A: I'm a proud gun owner and I respect the 2nd Amendment. A lot of gun laws in this country come from a place of historical oppression and, frankly, racism and bigotry. I think people should have the right to defend themselves if they so choose. Now, how do we address gun violence? The truth is, we've always had guns in this country. You're not going to address gun violence [by] gun confiscation or passing unconstitutional red flag laws that do away with people's due process. The way we address gun violence is we have to address the culture of violence in our society, and that's not something you can do with a piece of legislation. At the end of the day, I'm not going to support red flag laws; I'm not going to support gun confiscation. I'm going to stand up for people's right to defend themselves. I'm a member of the Pink Pistols: armed gays are harder to oppress and they're harder to bash.
