Senator-to-Be Tim Scott: “Our Second Amendment Right is a Fundamental Freedom”

From CNSNews:

(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Tim Scott (R.), whom South Carolina Gov. Nikke Haley has said she will appoint to replace retiring Sen. Jim DeMint in the U.S. Senate, has been an opponent of Obamacare’s sterilization-contraception-abortifacient mandate, and a defender of traditional marriage, the right to life, and the Second Amendment.

“The Constitution grants all law-abiding Americans the right to bear arms, regardless of what some would lead you to believe,” Scott says in a statement posted on his congressional website. “Our Second Amendment right is a fundamental freedom and a cornerstone of our democracy.

“As Americans, we have the right to defend ourselves, our families and our property, and the federal government should never interfere with this right,” says Scott.

“I remain steadfast in my commitment to uphold our Second Amendment rights,” he says.

“I regard all life as sacred, and am proud of our values and traditions,” Scott says in another statement on his congressional website. “For this reason I will remain steadfast in my commitment to protect the unborn and continue to take a stand in defending traditional and religious values.

“I cosponsored two pro-life bills which have now passed the House of Representatives, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act and the Protect Life Act,” says Scott.

“I also support traditional marriage, and spoke out against the president’s decision to no longer allow the Department of Justice to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court,” said Scott. “I absolutely believe in keeping the institution of marriage as one solely between a man and woman. We must not allow the government to distort the meaning of marriage and instead, focus on building stronger families across America.”

Senator-to-Be Tim Scott already showing more backbone and wisdom than 95% of lot in the Congress and Senate!!!
