A: Strongly support the right to keep and bear guns, and arms. And that right shall not be infringed.
A: Agree. That does not exclude background checks, and does not include criminals, suspected terrorists, or those suffering from mental illness.
A strict interpretation of this amendment would prevent the government from lawfully passing any legislation or issuing any executive order limiting the rights of gun owners. I support this interpretation of our constitution and I will always vote to support private gun ownership.
Furthermore, it does not make sense for us to violate these rights of gun owners when it will only create an illegal market for existing guns and accessories. A legal market for firearms is far superior to an illegal one. The right to self-protection is supreme. Taking guns from law-abiding citizens benefits criminals and jeopardizes that right.
A: I do not support any additional federal restrictions, and I support the repeal of unconstitutional restrictions imposed by some states and municipalities.
We also will make sure our teachers--and students--are safe and protected. The events in Connecticut of last December are a grave reminder that protecting our schools, and ensuring the safety of our students, our teachers & our bus drivers should always be a top priority.
I've asked to develop a strategic plan for preventing and responding to incidents of active shooters. Through use of training, technology through Virtual Alabama and public engagement, we hope to prevent tragedies from happening. A Homeland Security hotline is now posted on the Governor's Office website. Anyone can call that number and report suspicious activity. Calls are anonymous and are connected to the state's intelligence and information sharing operation.
