Kenneth Morgan is a gun owner, and a lifetime NRA member. He is a strong supporter of the second amendment and the rights of the people to keep and bear arms. He would support no legislation that would restrict this right.
The second amendment is comprised of two clauses: The prefatory clause and the operative clause. The prefatory clause is the first part, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State." This only states the purpose of the amendment. The operative clause is the part protected by the amendment, "The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The Supreme Court also clarified the myth that the amendment only applies to members of the armed forces or militia in D.C. vs. Heller, stating that all citizens are members of the militia.
What Kenneth believes in is gun safety, not gun control. It is important that we as a nation ensure that those with severe mental health issues who are considered a danger to themselves or others are unable to gain access to firearms and to do what can be done to prevent registered felons from gaining access to them as well. Mental health is an issue in and of itself which needs heavy consideration, both when determining what conditions warrant restricting access to firearms and which do not. This is a complex issue that requires multiple methods towards addressing it. It is highly important, though that the second amendment is protected and the rights of mentally stable, law abiding citizens to possess firearms is never infringed.
Kenneth Morgan is a young liberal republican. His stances on social issues are generally center left on the political compass while fiscally he is right of center. He dislikes modern outrage culture and tries to work hard and be ethical in both words and actions. His family taught him the values of honor and commitment from a young age, and the military reinforced both those values further. He will stay true to his belief systems and values in Washington, and work to do the most good for the people of southern and southeastern Ohio.
