Recommended Posts

Here's another 2020 issue, w/ candidate positions. Let me know if anything should be altered. 

FL: Ban all guns!

L: We need gun control! Ban certain guns. Require registration/background checks. Gun control protects children. [Biden, Warren, KHarris, Newsom, Gabbard, Garcetti, Steyer, Schultz, Booker, ShBrown, HClinton, Franken, Cuomo, Moulton]

CL: The right to bear arms, but only responsibly! Ban assault rifles, require registration/background checks. [Sanders, McAuliffe, O'Malley, Castro, Gillibrand]

C: Gun control is a state issue. Responsible gun ownership is fine. [Huntsman, Collins, Chafee, Edwards, Bullock, Heinrich, Buttigieg]

CR: We should be wary of gun control. The Second Amendment protects the right to bear arms. [Martinez, Grayson]

R: Gun ownership is constitutionally protected. Protect sportsmen's rights and the Second Amendment. [Trump, Kasich, Graham, Paul, Rubio, Cotton, Sasse]

FR: The Second Amendment is not negotiable! No restrictions on firearms! [Cruz]

@vcczar I'd say move Paul to FR.

Does he really believe in the total unrestricted ownership of guns? Even bazookas, miniguns, etc?

I don't want to get into a 2nd Amendment interpretation debate, but I think that his view fits more with FR.

We don't have to get into a debate on the 2nd amendment (I think many guns should be legal so long as the amendment is there, btw). Would Rand Paul approve the legalization of bazookas, miniguns and any deadly handheld projectile weapon that could be termed a fire arm?

I dont think it could be, so yes.

Can you give me a source to support the change, because I'm hesitant to move him there.

Semi-automatic weapons are a far cry, realistically speaking from bazookas and mini-guns. A bazooka could have, for instance, blown up most of the Sandy Hook school or Pulse nightclub in well-placed shot, and caused the rest of the structure to collapse in on itself.

Both Cruz and Rand are for preventing felons which would technically ne a restirction

Is there anyone that thinks felons should have gun?

Paul and Cruz are definitely further right than the majority of their party. I would consider changing your position on far-right to something more suitable than absolutely no restrictions.
