Letter to NRA

July 7, 2016

I received a questionnaire from the NRA / United Sportsmen of Florida regarding my stance on the 2nd Amendment and gun control. All of the answers to the questions were in full support of gun rights and opposing legislation on gun control. I also included a letter providing more insight on my support of gun ownership. 

Subject: Candidate Questionnaire

Dear friends of the 2nd Amendment,

As a Libertarian, I am committed to the principles of liberty, personal responsibility, and limited government. I believe that Gun control laws do the exact opposite of the very thing it is trying to accomplish, to keep people safe! Gun regulations disarm innocent civilians while doing nothing to prevent the violent criminals from committing atrocities and mass shootings like the one recently seen in Orlando. The so-called "Gun Free zones" are nothing more than advertisements for places criminals can go to and commit their crimes. I and all Libertarians believe that you should have the ability to protect yourself anywhere you go. Libertarians would repeal all gun control laws and honor the 2nd amendment, so you can protect your family and keep them safe again.

Yours in Liberty,

Artie Lurie
