Cruz: U.S. ‘One Liberal Justice’ Away From Losing Gun Rights

Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz warned last week that if a Democrat wins next year’s election, Americans could lose their right to own guns, Breitbart News reported.

“One more liberal justice and our right to keep and bear arms (will be) taken away from us by an activist court,” the Texas senator declared during a campaign appearance in Iowa, according to the Des Moines Register.

In a Breitbart News interview in April, Cruz explained: “America was founded on a revolutionary concept. Namely, that our rights don’t come from government, they come from God Almighty. The natural rights of man include life, liberty and property. Each of those rights is dependent upon being able to preserve the safety and security of your own family. In fact, the very first Congress not only acted to protect our Second Amendment rights but mandated the militia act; that adult free men must own a musket.”

The senator criticized President Obama and his administration for advocating further restrictions on the purchase and ownership of firearms. He accused the president of using the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre to pursue his anti-gun agenda.

Cruz, who has earned a 96 percent conservative rating from Breitbart, has placed as high as third in recent polls of likely Republican primary voters. Ben Carson and Donald Trump are the front-runners.
