Scott Pruitt on Gun Control

 

 


Second Amendment is divinely granted

According to a newly unearthed series of Oklahoma talk radio shows from 2005, Pruitt, who at the time was a state senator, described the Second Amendment as divinely granted and condemned federal judges as a "judicial monarchy" that is "the most grievous threat that we have today."

In the 2005 recordings, Pruitt also backed a broad interpretation of the Second Amendment's right to bear arms, saying it derives from a divine mandate and thus cannot be limited.

"If you can tell me what gun, type of gun, I can possess, then I didn't really get that right to keep and bear arms from God," he said. "It was not bequeathed to me, it was not unalienable, right?"
