Libertarian-Conservative Cong. Steve Stockman (R-TX): The 2nd Amendment is not about duck hunting

QUOTE OF THE DAY!

Gun Rights is about protecting ourselves from the tyranny of big governments

From the office of newly-elected US Rep. Steve Stockman:

“an existential threat to this nation” because, he said, the purpose of the Second Amendment is to allow the people to protect themselves from tyranny.

Any proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible,” he added. “Under no circumstances whatsoever may the government take any action that disarms any peaceable person — much less without due process through an executive declaration without a vote of Congress or a ruling of a court.”
Editor's note - Cong. Stockman served on the Republican Liberty Caucus advisory board in the mid-1990s, and is a friend of local Houston-area Libertarian Party members. (H/t LR Reader David Bellows, TX)
