Drew Ferguson on Gun Control



Concealed carry makes everyone safer except for criminals

Defending Your Second Amendment Right: I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. What makes America different from every other country in the world is a belief at our very core in the freedom of our citizens. We trust our freedoms to the people--not to the government. And we trust our citizens with the responsibilities to make their lives and families and communities stronger, more prosperous and safer.

We do not rely on the government to do it for us and that is a good philosophy, because government is generally terrible at all of those things--at least domestically.

Concealed carry by law-abiding citizens makes everyone safer except for criminals. Where do our freedoms stop? On a college campus? A public street? A restaurant? Americans should be free to protect themselves and their liberties wherever they go.

Opposes gun-control legislation.

Ferguson opposes the PVS survey question on gun control

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Guns: Do you generally support gun-control legislation?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
