Is the question of Debra Maggart's chops on gun rights as simple as whether conservatives should care more about property rights or the Second Amendment?
At odds here (and I’ve explained it before through other outlets) is the value of property rights over gun rights. The NRA and TFA’s sole disagreement with Maggart is that she didn’t support what they called the “Safe Commute” Act, but what I call the “Disregard for Private Property Rights” Act.
If passed, the bill would force property owners to allow gun owners to possess (in their vehicles) firearms on their property. I fundamentally and philosophically disagree with this position.
Private property rights are paramount.
