Second Amendment

Individuals Need To Be Able To Defend Themselves

The founding fathers of our country understood the importance of being able to defend oneself. Under colonial rule the colonial governments distrusted their free people with firearms and closely controlled their possession in governmental hands. The framers knew that individuals had a need to defend oneself and they codified this need in the Second Amendment. They did not limit this right to one religion or race, but provided for all citizens of the new nation.

A quote from George Washington during the first State of the Union:

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."

Individuals should have the ability to defend themselves and not have to rely on others for their protection. It is important to note while Phil supports hunters rights, the Second Amendment was not written to only protect hunters.

            

Phil is an avid firearms' owner and NRA Life Member. He instructed marksmanship fundamentals to Marines at the range. Firearms safety begins with education, not restriction. Gun related crime is strikingly down while firearms ownership is at a high.

As a member of Congress Phil Law will be the strongest defender of the Second Amendment in a time when it is being threatened by executive actions and liberal policies.
