He's running against slaughter for the 29th district congressional seat.
In modern times some have suggested that the second amendment is longer necessary and that the right of the people to bear arms can and should be abolished. David Crimmen's stance on this is very firm: that the founders wrote this right with good reason. Specifically that guns are the tool and embodiment of the idea that individuals have a right to protect themselves from both criminal and governmental forces that would intend them bodily harm. Some would say that the founders lived in a different age and argue that our current government is in no danger of becoming tyrannical, so it's ok if they have all the guns and the private citizens are defenseless. But think about it; what sense does it make to look at a bridge and say: "That bridge has been standing for 230 years straight- I don't think we need those support columns anymore." Furthermore say you're an old woman living a alone in a crime riddled neighborhood; unless you have access to a gun you have no way to defend yourself as guns are the great equalizers . That's not to say that David Crimmen supports no regulation. Weapons like fully automatic rifles shouldn't ever be allowed on the street and to ensure that guns end up in the right hands and the safety of the user he supports background checks and mandatory firearm training. So long as they can handle them, the individual's right to own a gun will always be protected on David Crimmen's watch.
