Ronnie Musgrove on Gun Control

2008 Senate challenger; previously Democratic MS Governor

Second Amendment privileges, with safety education

Q: Some Jackson officials complain that the stateís gun laws allow too many young people easy access to guns. Should gun laws be strengthened to allow police to more easily take guns from non-felons?

A: As an avid sportsman, I believe a person ought to have the right to exercise his or her Second Amendment privileges. We need more safety education of our young people--thatís the way to make sure that we teach our young people about guns and the benefit and the dangers. Secondly, though, as we give our young people a better opportunity in schools and more hope of a better job opportunity upon completion, then we reduce a childís reason and desire to drop out of school and get into trouble. Our strongest investment has to be in prevention through education.
