Colin Powell on Gun Control

Secretary of State (Pres. Bush Cabinet)


Reasonable investigation of gun registrants

Powell defends the right to bear arms. As a military man, he would naturally own weapons. But he also supports registration of weapons and reasonable investigation of would-be registrants.
