"The Founding Fathers did not randomly select the order of the Bill of Rights. The 2nd Amendment is placed that high on the list of inalienable rights because it is essential to our freedom."
The right to keep and bear arms is enshrined in the Second Amendment of the Constitution. The federal government should protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to own firearms. During my years in Congress, I have been a consistent voice on behalf of gun owners and have opposed legislation that seeks to chip away at the constitutional rights of Americans.
