excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored
to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless
Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an
undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
- Protecting Our
Rights, Fighting Criminals, and Supporting Victims
- Republicans and
President Bush strongly support an individual right to own guns,
which is explicitly protected by the Constitution's Second
Amendment. Our Party honors the great American tradition of hunting
and we applaud efforts by the Bush Administration to make more
public lands available to hunters, to increase access to hunting
clinics and safety programs for children and adults, and to improve
opportunities for hunting for Americans with disabilities.
- We believe the
Second Amendment and all of the rights guaranteed by it should
enable law-abiding citizens throughout the country to own firearms
in their homes for self-defense. To protect the rights and safety of
law-abiding citizens, the Congress passed and President Bush signed
the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act, which allows active and
retired law enforcement officers to carry concealed guns in public
while off-duty. We support efforts by the Administration and
Congress to enhance the instant background check system for gun
purchases and to ensure that records of lawful transactions are
destroyed in a timely manner. We applaud Congressional Republicans
for seeking to stop frivolous lawsuits against firearms
manufacturers, which is a transparent attempt to deprive citizens of
their Second Amendment rights. We oppose federal licensing of law-
abiding gun owners and national gun registration as a violation of
the Second Amendment and an invasion of privacy of honest citizens.
