The Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Because the right to life, liberty, and property implies a right of defense of self and property, and a right to acquire and maintain the tools to exercise such self-defense, and because an armed citizenry is the final defense against government tyranny, we support:

  1. The repeal of laws regulating the ownership and bearing of arms, including automatic or so-called assault weapons.
  2. The elimination of registration and all other government records pertaining to ownership of arms.
  3. The repeal of laws requiring permission from any government agency for any purpose relating to arms and ammunition.
  4. The right of airlines and other common carriers to decide their own weapons policies.

Further, we oppose extension of liability to the manufacturers or vendors of arms for crimes committed by the users of such arms.
