Focus on crime, not guns

Personal Weapon ControlInterior PolicyPoliticsCrime, Law and JusticeGun Control

I do not believe in any form of gun control, and I think it will ultimately kill more law-abiding Americans than any other law. The vast majority of Americans believe in the Second Amendment and that infringing on one's right to defend oneself is a clear violation of the Constitution.

I would be happy to offer ideas about how to reduce violent crimes committed with firearms. This is not rocket science, it's common sense. But gun control only equals more crime. It only helps the criminals among us commit more crimes.

Firearms will be a part of American's lives forever. What we need to focus on is solving the crime problem, not on disarming law-abiding citizens.
