Tell Us What You Think—Will More Gun Control Make America A Safer Place?

The left has decided that the great tragedy that we just witnessed down in Florida is an opportunity to try to grab our guns. We are witnessing an all-out assault on the Second Amendment like we haven't seen in decades, and this will undoubtedly be one of the most hotly debated issues as we head into the 2018 midterm elections.

I will never compromise a single inch when it comes to the Second Amendment, but unfortunately not all politicians are willing to take the same stand. In fact, some of my opponents publicly indicated that they were willing to compromise on gun issues even before the tragedy in Florida took place.

The Second Amendment says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms "shall not be infringed."

Unfortunately, there has been a whole lot of infringing going on.

In this race for Congress, a couple of my opponents also say that they are "100% pro-gun", but what they mean by that is very different from what I mean.

The status quo is not acceptable. For decades, Democrats have been moving the ball forward on gun control whenever they are in power, and then Republicans pledge to keep them from going any further once they take control. But the Republicans never go back and actually repeal the bad things that the Democrats put in place.

I live in north Idaho, and I sleep very well at night because I know that virtually everybody is armed. If some thieves decided that it would be a good idea to start breaking into homes at night, they would have extremely short criminal careers.

Gun control is never the answer. Just look at Chicago. It has some of the toughest gun laws in the entire nation and yet murder and other forms of violent crime are completely out of control.

We need to send people to Washington that understand that there can never be any compromise when it comes to our Second Amendment rights.
