Protecting the Second Amendment

Gun control isn't about guns — it's about control. And the right to bear arms isn't about the arms — it's about the right.

The protection of individual liberty is absolutely the job of government, but it is not exclusively the job of government. It is first and foremost the job of "we the people" — individually as local communities and collectively as a nation. Well-enforced laws can deter crime, but even the best police and prosecutors in the world can not eliminate crime. 

Therefore, the first defense against criminal threats to our persons and property is ourselves. That's why we have a right — a right granted by God and protected by the Constitution — to arm and protect ourselves.

To Protect the Second Amendment Sen. Lee helped lead the fight against gun control in the Senate.
