State of New Mexico Archives: on Gun Control


David Clements: Right to bear arms protects all of our other rights

The right of the people to keep and bear arms is the best way to protect all of our other rights; it helps keep us safe and it can also be a great source of recreation. We must take the Second Amendment just as seriously as the rest of our rights as Americans. Congress must stop practices which hurt these rights, including restrictions on the ability to purchase, transport, store, or possess arms on public lands or on an individual's private property.

As a U.S. Senator, I will work to improve gun rights and fight against inappropriate judicial tricks such as using the Commerce Clause to justify taking away our freedoms. 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.
