Alex Mooney on Gun Control

 

 


Misguided gun laws only punish law-abiding gun owners

I believe strongly in Americans' constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Misguided gun control laws only punish law-abiding gun owners instead of targeting the criminals who ignore the laws on the books.

During my time in the state Senate, I sponsored right-to-carry legislation and always supported the right of law-abiding citizens to protect their homes and their property. I will continue to do so in the U.S. Congress.

Mooney opposes the CC survey question on restricting guns

CC.org's self-description: "The Christian Coalition voter guide [is] one of the most powerful tools Christians have ever had to impact our society during elections. This simple tool has helped educate tens of millions of citizens across this nation as to where candidates for public office stand on key faith and family issues.

The Coalition is a political organization, made up of pro-family Americans who care deeply about ensuring that government serves to strengthen and preserve, rather than threaten, our families and our values. To that end, we work continuously to identify, educate and mobilize Christians for effective political action." The CC survey summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: 'Further restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms'
