I-1639 does not infringe the right to bear arms

Print Article

Criminals steal guns. Children playing with weapons can be tragic. The I-1639 law requires that guns be stored safely and that stolen weapons be reported. If followed, it will likely save lives.

I-1639 keeps the search warrant protection for gun-owning citizens. It does not infringe “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” (Second Amendment). It simply requires that guns be stored in such a manner that criminals and children cannot access them. No limits are put on legitimate uses of guns, such as protection, target practice and hunting.

Having received 59 percent approval, I-1639 is scheduled to be implemented in July. Grant County Democrats expect all law enforcement officers, gun sellers and gun owners to obey the law.
