Second Amendment

Marco believes that the Second Amendment is about much more than the right to bear arms. At its core, the Second Amendment is about the American Dream.

The American Dream means having the opportunity to achieve happiness, which is possible, first and foremost, when you can start and raise a family in a home that is stable, safe and secure.

The safety of our families is not something we should be forced to hope the government can provide – it’s a fundamental right that every American deserves.

On Gun Control…

We must examine why it is people are taking violent action, not what they’re using to commit the violent act. We have two issues in this country: One is mental illness, which we need to begin to address more seriously, as opposed to stigmatizing or it in some cases trying to put it aside. That’s a societal issue we must confront as a society and a country.

The other of course is why have we become so violent as individuals. What is it that’s leading people in this country who are not mentally ill to do the sort of drive-by shootings and things that we’ve seen? . . .

The guns are what they’re using to commit the violence. In many cases, the laws that are actually being proposed would not have prevented them.

Dissenters try and stigmatize gun owners, but as we all know, responsibly exercising one’s Second Amendment right could mean the difference between life and death.

The post Second Amendment appeared first on Marco Rubio for Senate.
