State of Michigan secondary Archives: on Gun Control

Garrett Soldano: I will defend 2nd amendment, implement Constitutional Carry

The gun rights of law-abiding citizens should never be infringed by power-hungry politicians. Liberal elites don't understand guns, how they work or what they're for, and they shouldn't be dictating how We the People can exercise our constitutional rights. As the next Governor of Michigan I will defend the Second Amendment against the Democrats' gun grabs and implement Constitutional Carry, joining states like Vermont, Iowa and Kentucky in allowing citizens to exercise their rights.

Mike Bouchard: No assault weapon ban; no gun dealer liability

Q: Do you think Federal Firearms Licensed Dealers should be liable if the products they sell are used in a crime?

A: No

Q: Would you support the Federal Assault Weapons Ban if it came up again?

A: No

Q: Do you think the 2nd Amendment is a collective or individual right?

A: I think the 2nd Amendment is a broad based right that guarantees the rights of people in all states, so it's individual, and by shape broader than that.

Mike Bouchard: Concealed carry ok

Q: Would you support legislation to issue a Federal Concealed Carry Permit that included all 50 states for US citizens?

A: Yes

Q: Would you place restrictions on where they would carry and what would they be.

A: There would be some places that would have restrictions, for example courtrooms, places that are dispute resolution oriented, airports (sterile area), those that are directly affecting the security of us all.

Q: Do you support the Michigan Concealed Carry Law?

A: Yes.
