    The Second Amendment (right to own and carry weapons) is an extension of the First (right to freedom of expression) in that when you shoot at a thug, you’re saying by non-verbal means, “No, you can’t steal my life, liberty or property.”

    If you take a close look at the statements made by GOP presidential candidates since 1972, that’s been the case (that the Libertarian Party is the only party fully supporting the Second Amendment) since the LP was founded in 1971.

    Nixon said “Guns are an abomination.”

    Ford gave voice to support to victim disarmament schemes in the 1990s.

    When Reagan was Governor of California, he signed into law the Mulford Act of 1967, outlawing open carry in response to fears about the Black Panthers. Then in 1993, Reagan issued a statement supporting the 1994 “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazine ban.

    George H.W. Bush said he would sign the Brady Bill if it was included into a larger “crime bill,” and issued an executive order outlawing the importation of 20-some “assault weapons.” That’s the reason that any currently imported “assault weapon”-type semi-auto rifle has to have over half its parts manufactured inside the United States. After leaving the White House, Bush the Elder signed the same statement as Reagan and Ford supporting the “assault weapons” ban.

    George W. Bush was willing to support mandatory ownership and usage of triggerlocks in 2001, as well as the McCain-Lieberman S.890, which if it had passed would have shut down gun shows. On 15 March 2003, Bush said that if a reauthorization of the 1994 “assault weapons” ban was passed, he would sign it.

    John McCain has been pissing on gun owners, dealers and manufacturers since at least 2001. In addition to S.890, he supported the Toomey-Manchin “universal background check” bill floated in 2013 after Sandy Hook.

    Mitt Romney has likewise been pissing on gun owners, in his case since 1994, when he ran for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts and said that he was “no friend of the NRA.” in June, 2004, he signed into the Massachusetts state statutes an “assault weapons” ban.

    It doesn’t matter if you’re Omar Mateen or Vanessa Willock, you don’t have the right to force your will upon others who don’t want to interact with you.
