Alex Mooney: Misguided gun laws only punish law-abiding gun owners

I believe strongly in Americans' constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Misguided gun control laws only punish law-abiding gun owners instead of targeting the criminals who ignore the laws on the books.

During my time in the state Senate, I sponsored right-to-carry legislation and always supported the right of law-abiding citizens to protect their homes and their property. I will continue to do so in the U.S. Congress.

John Buckley: Supports right to gun ownership

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Absolute right to gun ownership"?

A: Support, but your use of the word "absolute" is confusing.
