Chapman Answer's Gregg Abbott on the 2nd Amendment

Gregg Abbott's Website:  "Greg Abbott believes the right to keep and bear arms was settled in 1791 when the 2nd Amendment was adopted to the U.S. Constitution. On behalf of 31 states, Attorney General Abbott championed a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision (District of Columbia v. Heller) that struck down a handgun ban and protected an individual’s right to bear arms."

Gene's Answer:  Whether you believe in creationism or evolution or a combination of the two, I believe the right to keep and bear arms was established when the first human-like creature picked up a rock or a stick and beat the hell out of the one trying to take it away from him/ her. 

Gregg Abbott's Website:  "Greg Abbott continues to protect 2nd Amendment rights by preparing to challenge potential federal laws that limit gun rights. He was also one of the first Attorneys General in America to challenge the Obama Administration’s efforts to use the United Nations to regulate guns in the United States."

Gene's reply:  I believe in abolishing the state conception of life in favor of the Kingdom conception of life, a libertarian stateless society driven by conscience.  There are no gun control laws of any kind in the Kingdom.

Gregg Abbott's Website:  "As an avid hunter and member of the Texas State Rifle Association and National Rifle Association, Greg Abbott will continue to fight any federal government overreach that aims to disrupt the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans."

Gene's reply:  I've not been coyote, squirrel or deer hunting since I was 18 years old, but as the past negotiator/ honest broker for Rick Stanely's Mutual Defense Pact (600 men), I think the NRA is a bunch of misguided gun control pawns, who violate the spirit of the 2nd Amendment each time they support gun legislation for background checks, etc.
