Chris McDaniel on Gun Control
Mike Espy (D): Yes, up to a point. "I believe in the Second Amendment. but things have changed."
Cindy Hyde-Smith (R): No. Says, "Right to bear arms is essential to American Liberty. No law-abiding Mississippian should EVER be denied their constitutional rights."
Chris McDaniel (R): No. Will never take away rights of law-abiding gun-owners.Allow citizens to purchase & carry firearms without government permission.
McDaniel: Strongly Disagree
The comments were featured in a teaser for the program: "The reason Canada is breaking out with brand new gun violence has nothing to do with the US and guns," McDaniel said. "It has everything to do with a culture that is morally bankrupt. What kind of culture is that? It's called hip-hop. Name a redeeming quality of hip-hop. I want to know anything about hip-hop that has been good for this country."
McDaniel says the bill would mandate that no state agency would assist in the implementation of unconstitutional executive orders relating to gun rights.
McDaniel is also co-authoring two related bills. "All of these pieces of legislation will be challenged, there's no question about it," McDaniel said. "But, it's a debate we need to have in this country. Right now, we have a president that is exercising far too much authority, we have a federal government that is trying to do too much to too many people and do too many things," he said.
Summary by National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action [a pro-gun-rights group]: Senate Bill 2862 allowed retired law enforcement officers to qualify for the ability to carry a concealed firearm without a permit under federal law by gaining certification from the Mississippi Association of Chiefs of Police. Repeals the current state ban on the possession of firearms in public parks by Mississippi Right-To-Carry permit holders. This change in state law will allow Mississippi permit holders to carry in state parks.
