Ted Budd: Eliminating our gun rights is a wrongheaded idea

President Obama has made it his mission to eliminate our gun rights, and as the owner of a gun store and range, I know how wrongheaded his ideas are. Law-abiding citizens are not the problem, and I will stand strong for the rights guaranteed to each of us by the 2nd Amendment.

Deborah Ross: Tried to block legislation that would allow concealed carry

Ross spent her time as a state representative voting against almost all key state legislation on firearms, according to Project Vote Smart. She tried to block state legislation that would allow people to carry concealed handguns into restaurants & state parks as well as legislation that gave judges permission to take concealed weapons to court. State residents with concealed carry permits can now take their guns into restaurants, and judges with the same types of permits can take their firearms to work.

Deborah Ross: Supports commonsense gun safety and background checks

Ross said "the right time is now" to talk about issues that include gun safety. She specifically used the term "personal safety," and said background checks could be a way to ensure terrorists and people who have a history of violence don't have access to guns. Ross said "the second amendment is very important, but we have to have commonsense gun safety."
