Ron Paul on Gun Control


Paul probably has the most unrivaled record among all the 2012 presidential candidates for his advocacy of the Second Amendment for individuals. In 2007, Paul introduced the H.R. 1096: Second Amendment Protection Act of 2007 in Congress.

In our own country, we should be ever vigilant against any attempts to disarm the people, especially in this economic downturn. I expect violent crime to rise sharply in the coming days, and as states and municipalities are even more financially strained, the police will be even less able or willing to respond to crime. In many areas, local police could become more and more absorbed with revenue generating activities, like minor traffic violations and the asset forfeiture opportunities of non-violent drug offenses. Your safety has always, ultimately been your own responsibility, but never more so than now. People have a natural right to defend themselves. Governments that take that away from their people should be highly suspect.

  1. Unrivaled on the Second Amendment?

    Congressman Ron Paul was not among the 245 cosponsors or 272 votes for H.R. 822 (National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act) on November 16. Where does he stand on H.R. 822?

    He also was one of two U.S. Representatives who signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief in the Heller case but did not do so in the McDonald case.

    Finally, Dr. Paul was one of three Republican congressmen — joining anti-gun colleagues Mike Castle and Chris Shays — to vote twice against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act which shut down frivolous lawsuits against the firearms industry that attempt to bankrupt them by holding them civilly liable for the criminal misuse of their products by others.
