John Cox on Gun Control

Republican Party Chair, Cook County (IL)

 


Gun control doesn’t work

I am a Lifetime member of the NRA and fully support gun ownership and our Second Amendment right to bear arms. “Gun control” doesn’t work, and uses precious resources rather than going after criminals. Concealed Carry laws have helped prevent crime in the states that have adopted them.

Gun control is a waste of time

Q. Where do you stand on gun control?

A. I am a lifetime member of the NRA. In every state that has enacted conceal-carry, the crime rate has gone down. I think gun control is a waste of time. Washington, D.C. has the best gun control laws and the highest crime rate. I want our resources to go to prosecute criminals.
