Platform Position of Unity Party Candidate Bill Hammons
Gun Rights > As with the rest of the United States Constitution, I support the Second Amendment as it was written over 200 years ago.
I don’t support Universal Background Checks, as, based on my own experience at gun shows, your typical buyer at a gun show isn’t the sort of person who’s ready to go out and commit a mass shooting. Also, Universal Checks lead to Universal Registration in the hands of the FBI, and our nation was created by a Revolution started by gun owners (imagine what the British authorities would’ve done with such a list).
I do support the encouragement of universal (or near-universal) firearm safety training, partly to hammer home to new gun owners awareness of the responsibilities that come with owning a firearm.
