Gun Rights

The 14th amendment protects the right to bear arms from state infringement, just as the 2nd amendment protects it from the federal government. The same amendment that gives me the right to marry and gives women the right to choose also gives gun owners the right to bear arms. I believe the 14th amendment must be defended at all costs.

Self defense is a fundamental human freedom. Ben will defend the rights of gun owners with the same passion he defends our other freedoms. 

Preventing gun violence. The moral issue that should drive Democrats is reducing gun violence. Purveyors of gun violence are ill or desperate, and they need our help. The vast majority of gun violence are suicides, and of the remainder the vast majority are committed by people without a college degree.  The best way to reduce gun violence is universal healthcare and universal education.
