The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution did not grant us the right to keep and bear arms. God did.
The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution merely acknowledges that God gave us the right to defend ourselves, our property, and our families.
Oregon Constitution Article I,§27 is an aid to Oregonians who want to protect themselves and others. It has been misconstrued in recent court cases to allow the Oregon legislature to infringe the rights of certain, disfavored people to possess firearms. I hope to read and apply this section literally when elected.
