Sen. Cruz: Liberals Seek 'Practical Elimination of Second Amendment'

Sen. Cruz: Liberals Seek 'Practical Elimination of Second Amendment'

By    |   Friday, 04 May 2018 10:51 AM

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, commented on gun owners’ rights Friday, saying that liberals seek the "practical elimination of the Second Amendment."

"Since the early 1900s, some liberals have been eager to end the Second Amendment altogether. Today, knowing they cannot pursue this goal head-on without Americans rejecting their real agenda, most liberals content themselves by trimming around the edges of the Second Amendment, fiddling with the lengths of barrels, capacities of magazines, open and concealed carry, and more, to inch toward their true goal: the practical elimination of the Second Amendment," Cruz wrote Friday in The Dallas News.

Cruz targeted "coastal elites" for taking issue with responsible gun owners.

"Coastal elites who have never been to shooting ranges consider even responsible gun ownership akin to tracking manure onto the kitchen floor: perhaps not criminal, but certainly not acceptable, and worth stopping,” Cruz wrote.

Liberals are targeting responsible gun owners and sellers, Cruz said. "By blaming atrocities committed by madmen and terrorists on honest American businesses, national liberals avoid the difficult but necessary process of crafting policy based on actual facts like mental health, school safety, and real firearm statistics,” Cruz wrote in The Dallas News.

"Dealers and owners who already operate within the law are often the first to run toward danger to defend the innocent," Cruz said, noting the case of Stephen Willeford, who exchanged fire with a gunman and helped chase him down after a Texas church shooting in November 2017.

Cruz said he would continue to defend gun owners’ rights. "I will continue to defend the right to keep and bear arms—and all our rights under the Constitution—as senator for the great state of Texas," Cruz wrote.
