Does the Second Amendment give individuals the right to bear arms?
Asked at the Old Fashioned Christmas Parade on December 8, 2002
“Not necessarily. No, I don’t think it does.”
“Yes. I think it’s an individual’s right to do that.”
“I suppose that it does. It’s those radical fringe groups that take it to extremes that aren’t in the best interest of society.”
“Yes, I do. It comes from our forefathers. The Revolutionary War was fought by militias who had the right to bear arms, and I think that carries through to today.”
