This is a principal that our nation was founded on and it is the duty of elected officials to uphold that principal in modern times.
The best way to see that the 2nd Amendment has been upheld by elected officials is to look at their past records and ignore their political rhetoric. Below is a comparison of the three main candidates for Governor of Wisconsin and their records on the 2nd Amendment.
1999: Walker was FOR concealed carry, as he proposed Assembly Bill 605. 2
1999: Walker was AGAINST concealed carry, as he voted against Assembly Bill 605. 3
2001: Walker was AGAINST concealed carry, as he voted against Assembly Bill 675. 5
2006: Walker was FOR concealed carry while running in the Republican primary for Governor.
Neumann has always been a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment. He is a lifelong hunter and a member of gun rights groups. His father took him on his first hunting outing. He taught his children how to shoot. In fact, while he was in the United States Congress he once missed a vote because he had promised to take his son on their annual hunting trip.
While in Congress, Neumann voted repeatedly to protect the 2nd Amendment. For example, he voted to repeal the Assault Weapons Ban. 8
Mark Neumann received an 'A+' rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA) in the 1990s when running for office.
Barrett supports gun control. For example, while in the United States Congress, Barrett voted for H.R. 1025, which is also known as the "Brady Bill. 9
