In light of the upcoming Presidential election, it is more important than ever to be aware of the candidate that will support your right to keep and bear arms. We are currently engaging in a fight between freedom and tyranny, upholding the Constitution or a complete destruction of our God-given rights, and love of our nation versus the hate of the very values that make us Americans.
I am very excited to announce that the Donald J. Trump for President Campaign has launched the Gun Owners for Trump Coalition. It is a humbling honor to be named a member of the Advisory Board.
I strongly urge you to take a look at the positions that are being taken by the Biden Campaign regarding the Second Amendment. If you have not already, it is imperative that we inform ourselves and those around us of the policy and positions that are being taken by our candidates. This is truly a make or break election for the United States.
President Donald Trump made this statement regarding the Second Amendment during his speeches at the Republican National Convention,
“We will uphold your religious liberty, and defend your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. And if we don’t win, your Second Amendment doesn’t have a chance. I can tell you that.”
His son, Eric Trump, added even greater detail and encouragement with a statement about the Second Amendment and the Biden campaign.
“Biden has pledged to defund the police and take away your cherished second amendment. My father on the other hand…will always support law enforcement and your right to keep and bear arms. Every day, my father fights for the American people, the forgotten man and woman of this country, the ones who embody the American spirit”
Below is the official statement by the Democratic Party Platform on Joe Biden and the Democrats’ goals regarding firearms.
Ending the Epidemic of Gun Violence
Gun violence is a public health crisis in the United States. Over 100,000 people are shot and nearly 40,000 people die annually from guns—devastating countless families, friends, and communities. We can and will make gun violence a thing of the past. Addressing the gun violence crisis requires supporting evidence-based programs that prevent gun deaths from occurring in the first place, including by making mental health care more accessible and supporting suicide reduction initiatives, funding interventions to reduce homicides and gun violence in neighborhoods, and strengthening protections against domestic violence. Democrats will also ensure the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have sufficient resources to study gun violence as a public health issue, including the ongoing health care, mental health, economic, and social costs that can affect survivors and their families for years.
Democrats will enact universal background checks, end online sales of guns and ammunition, close dangerous loopholes that currently allow stalkers, abusive partners, and some individuals convicted of assault or battery to buy and possess firearms, and adequately fund the federal background check system. We will close the “Charleston loophole” and prevent individuals who have been convicted of hate crimes from possessing firearms. Democrats will ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines. We will incentivize states to enact licensing requirements for owning firearms and extreme risk protection order laws that allow courts to temporarily remove guns from the possession of those who are a danger to themselves or others. We will pass legislation requiring that guns be safely stored in homes. And Democrats believe that gun companies should be held responsible for their products, just like any other business, and will prioritize repealing the law that shields gun manufacturers from civil liability.
