Jared Huffman on Gun Control



2nd amendment right is not absolute

Q: Do you support restrictions on the purchase and possession of guns?

A: Yes. The 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms is not absolute. I support the Brady Campaign and other common-sense reforms that respect a limited right to own guns for hunting and personal safety, coupled with reasonable restrictions on gun ownership to protect the public and members of the law enforcement community
