State of New Mexico Archives: on Crime


David Clements: Support 4th amendment: freedom from unreasonable searches

With the threat of rising crime due to our crashing economy, it's more important than ever that our representatives be 100% committed to defending our right to keep and bear arms.

We need to send people to Washington who not only understand the 2nd amendment, but the entire Bill of Rights.

Gun rights advocates need to know that the 2nd amendment is only as good as the fourth amendment. If we are not free from unreasonable and warrantless searches, no one's guns are safe. The 2nd amendment is very clear when it says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
