Gun Control Does Not Stop Crime

With all the talk of the Las Vegas massacre and the anti-gun folks using this incident as impetus to bring up gun control AGAIN, we need only to point to the city of Chicago. It has the toughest gun laws in the country and one of the highest murder rates. Gun control does not work!

In addition, the Constitution states clearly that the right of the American people to have guns "shall not be infringed." Why? Because the Founders knew human nature. They knew that once people get power, they will do anything to keep it. They were very clear that a free people needed the capability of defending themselves against tyrants. 

Do people sometimes misuse guns? Yes, they do. And there are laws in place to hold them accountable. Those laws must be enforced. Because some idiot is going to do something stupid does not mean that everyone must be penalized. 

Getting back to our constitutional roots is the only way we will ever get back on the right track.

Gun control cannot work because it's the person, not the gun, that makes the decision whether to use it. Mary Burkett, Republican candidate for Utah's 2nd Congressional District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, explains the difference between conservative and liberal views on the Constitution and gun control. Preserving 2nd Amendment rights is a priority for Mary Burkett!
