Protect Your God Given Rights
“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Our founding fathers understood clearly that in order to secure a Free State we must protect our God-given rights to keep and bear arms. As free people, we have the rights to defend ourselves when the State fails to do so, and I will fight to defend our rights given to us from God.
We can keep our community safe from gun violence by enforcing our existing laws and keep our police forces well-funded. Currently for anyone to purchase a gun in Minnesota, you are required by law to have a license, if you want a carry license you are required to take a full day class and pass a test at the end of the course. Once you pass the test you will receive a certificate, you then take that certificate to the county Sherriff’s office to apply for a license, the Sherriff’s office will run a background check on all applicants before issuing a license. After that, when you go to a gun shop, they will run a federal background check on you before you can walk out of the shop with a gun. This sounds like a pretty good system to me, all the talks about “anyone can go to a Wal-Mart and buy guns” is misinformation.
The Democrats keep using the term “universal background check”, but what does it mean? No one has clearly explained what that means. Does it mean you check everyone living in the State or you check on everyone turning 16 or 18 in the State? Then what? Only allow the people who passed the background check to buy guns? We are already doing that! People today who can’t pass a background check can’t obtain a license; therefore, we already have a law to not sell guns to anyone with a questionable or criminal record. That’s why in order to keep our communities safe we need well-funded police forces to enforce our laws and to track the illegal sales/smugglings of arms.
Remember, murdering someone is already illegal, did the criminals obey the laws?
