Rand Paul promises to be 'vigilant' protector of gun rights

By Joseph Gerth • • June 12, 2010

Republican U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul told gun enthusiasts that if elected, he'll work to ensure that Congress doesn't pass any legislation that would restrict their rights to own weapons.

"I'm a proud defender of the Second Amendment," he told a group around him at the Great Eastern National Gun Day Show and JAG Military Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

"We must be ever vigilant of our Second Amendment rights. We must continually remind Washington that a majority cannot vote to take away our Second Amendment rights," he said. Courier-Journal, Louisville, KY
