Krista Burns Friend of the 2nd Amendment
I'm running for State Assembly; Wisconsin 19th District; and I am a friend of the 2a.┬* It's true the 19th District is the home of UWM, and many liberal professors.┬* Other areas of the District are more conservative in their views.┬* I can win with your support.
I am the daughter of a Military Academy attendee, Korean War Vet, hunter, and gun owner.┬* I grew up in a household of firearms (hand guns, rifles and shotguns), and learned to shoot a 22 Rifle at age 10.┬* I'm a God and Country kind of woman.┬* I believe in the Constitution as is,┬* and am disturbed by how our rights have been eroded.
I am in favor of law abiding citizens carrying guns openly, as well as concealed.┬* I do believe there should be some licensing and training necessary
; but am cautious about additional hoops and regulations that hide behind claims of safety while in actuality are designed for deterrence.┬*
I am opposed to trigger locks, ammo stamping, and other regulations designed to increase the expense of gun ownership, the usability of guns legally owned, or restrict gun ownership.┬* I am OK with background checks; and denying felons ownership.┬* I am cautious to unilaterally support the restrictions on mentally ill people; only because at some point gun opponents may define mentally ill as anyone who wishes to purchase a gun.
