PRESS RELEASE: Senator Ted Cruz Leads Defense of #2A

Today Senator Cruz held a press conference at LaRue Tactical Gun in Leander, Texas. As I’ve stated here before, disarming innocent people does not and will not protect innocents.  Law abiding citizens should not be blamed or penalized for the acts of cowardice and terror by criminals.  Nor should we be hindered in protecting ourselves and our families should we choose to own a firearm.  My Family.  My Choice.  My Right.

From Senator Cruz’s press conference today:

LEANDER, TX – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) today held a press conference discussing the importance of defending the Second Amendment in the wake of calls for increased gun control at the federal level. He spoke at LaRue Tactical, a nationally-renowned gun manufacturer located outside of Austin.

“Evidence overwhelmingly demonstrates that when the rights of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves, their homes and their families are taken away, that violent crime increases and citizens are left more vulnerable to violent criminals,” said Sen. Cruz. “The Supreme Court made absolutely clear that the Second Amendment is a constitutional right of every American and constitutional rights are designed to be protected not just when they’re popular, but especially when passions are high among those seeking to restrict and limit those rights. While we should use every available means to deter and to punish mass murderers, the federal government should not be trying to ban gun ownership for law-abiding Americans.”
