Gary Johnson on Obama’s 2nd Amendment Assault

gary-johnson-19885Last week Gary Johnson sounded off against the President’s attempts to circumvent the 2nd Amendment via executive order:

In the wake of the attacks on America on 9/11/2001, the federal government’s response was, in part, the greatest assault on individual liberties and privacy on a generation. The result was the Patriot Act, unprecedented monitoring of our personal lives, indefinite detentions and the compilation of government databases that threaten our freedom in truly disturbing ways.

Now, in the wake of Newtown and other tragic criminal acts, President Obama is again reacting by trying to make government bigger and freedom smaller. Issuing a raft of Executive Orders, attempting to legislate around the 2nd Amendment, and proposing new and more intrusive ways to track us in our daily lives will not make us — or our kids — safer. It will only make us less free.

Restricting the rights of free and law-abiding Americans is not a solution to anything, and only makes government and its force more powerful.

    Why can’t all politicians be like Gary Johnson…

    Well… probably because most people are too into soundbites and being told what they like to hear.

    Real shame though.
