Congressman Mo Brooks this week added his voice to many in Alabama opposing gun control restrictions being bandied about in Washington this month.
Brooks, R-Huntsville, during an interview this week said the Second Amendment serves to protect all other constitutional rights and that New York City had no business telling Alabama how to regulate its firearms.
And from his point of view, it's not about hunting or sport. Instead, Brooks said that history shows disarming a populace allows for the rise of dictatorial central governments. “The Second Amendment prevents our central government from even thinking about seizing dictatorial power that ends our republic or democracy,” he said.
