Mick Rich: Supports 2nd Amendment rights including "assault rifles"

Human beings have the God-given right to protect themselves, their families, and their communities. Americans have the Constitutional right to buy, own, and carry firearms. Our 2nd Amendment rights should allow us undisturbed carry of our firearms no matter which state we live in or travel to. Black guns--often wrongly called "assault rifles"--should have equal legal status as other hunting rifles. And gun owners should be able to protect their hearing by buying silencers.

Mick Rich: 2nd Amendment is a God-given right

Human beings have the God-given right to protect themselves, their families, and their communities. Americans have the Constitutional right to buy, own, and carry firearms. Our Second Amendment rights should allow us undisturbed carry of our firearms no matter which state we live in or travel to. Black guns--often wrongly called "assault rifles"--should have equal legal status as other hunting rifles. And gun owners should be able to protect their hearing by buying silencers without undergoing a background investigation or paying a special tax.

Steve Pearce: Allow concealed guns across state lines

The National Rifle Association has said momentum is building for bills that enshrine rights to carry concealed weapons across state lines. Pearce is among more than 200 co-sponsors of the House reciprocity bill. A spokesman for Pearce's campaign for state governor said concerns about the bill undermining public safety were unfounded, noting that it defers to existing state laws about where concealed weapons can be carried.
