Drew Ferguson on Gun Control
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.
The American Family Association Action Voter Guide asked if candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'More restrictive gun control laws are needed to protect public safety.' American Family Association Action (AFA Action) produces the online "iVoterGuide" for selected state and federal races. The mission of AFA Action is to inform and mobilize individuals to strengthen the biblical foundations of America.
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."
