Chuy Garcia on Gun Control



Controls on guns are in the bounds of Constitution

Reasonable gun controls on the sale and ownership of guns is clearly within the bounds of the Constitution. Such controls include a unified federal background check system for gun sales and limits on certain kinds of rifles which are not designed for sport use. The 2nd Amendment guarantees rights for sport uses and militias such as the national guard, so that proper constraints on sale and ownership and types of guns will not compromise either our constitutional rights or our safety.
