Check Out What Jeff Sessions Just Said About The 2nd Amendment

Written by  C.E. Dyer

Sen. Jeff Sessions began his confirmation hearing for attorney general this week, during which he was asked about the Second Amendment. He explained firmly that it is “a personal right,” “a historic right of the American people,” and that “the Constitution protects it and explicitly states it.

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) asked Sessions, “In Louisiana, Senator, we believe that love is the answer. But we also believe that we have the right under the Constitution to own a gun, just in case. Could you share with me your thoughts on the Second Amendment?” C-SPAN reported.

Sessions answered: “Well, I do believe the Second Amendment is a personal right. It is a historic right of the American people. And the Constitution protects it and explicitly states it.”

He added, “It is just as much part of the Constitution as any of the other great rights and liberties that we value. So my record is pretty clear on that.”

You can watch Sessions’ comments below. The relevant portion begins around 02:03:30.

Sessions further discussed “legitimate and responsible” restraint on the Second Amendment:

People can forfeit their right to have a gun, and it can be a factor in receiving sentences and being prosecuted if you carry a gun, for example, during the commission of a crime.
