I am a strong advocate for the right to bear and carry arms. I believe our elected officials should live under, not above, the same rules and laws that they pass and apply to us (i.e. The irony of our elected officials having security details to provide protection for them, while opposing and denying individuals their gun rights). I am a member of the NRA. I bought four other memberships as gift for our veterans. I have a CHL to carry. Gun violence statistics under gun control are very high. Look at the city of Chicago as an example.
