Gary Johnson

Are you ready to feel the Johnson?

Gun Control: Second Amendment

Gun Control is a very big issue in the United States. Certain people want to ebolish the people's right to bear arms, which just happens to be the second amendment. Gary's view is even if guns are outlawed criminals will still find a way to get their hands on them. "If you outlaw guns, criminals will have guns. If you outlaw the number of (illegible) magazine, only the criminals, number of bullets in a magazine, only the criminals will have bullets in the magazine. Gun control sounds terrific, but at the end of the day, it makes this country less safe. This is the Second Amendment. The constitution guarantees all of us the right to bear arms."

Terrorism: America's Greatest Threat

America's greatest threat is terrorism. Between 1970 and 2011 there were 2,608 terrorist attacks and 226 of those were fatal. Gary knows a way to solve this. He wants to focus the funding on defense to protect our country from terrorism. "Well, we cut off the funding, and that, and um, cut off the funding. We get Congress involved. You realize that all these military interventions are, um, executive, executive orders essentially, and the military. Congress has left themselves out of declaring war. It would be great to have a national discussion on what is it we’re doing. What are the strategies we are implementing? I just think that at the end of the day, regarding all of these military interventions, that boots on the ground, dropping bombs, uh, and flying drones that kill thousands of innocent people. That at the end of the day, making the situation worse, not better. And that is not to discount the very real threat that’s out there. But look, get rid of the funding, involve Congress, um, and with regard to national strategy, an impenetrable national defense. Defense, not offense.

Immigration: Gary's View

Johnson's plan is the same as almost everyone else. To make it easier to get work visas for it to be legal to come here. "Johnson's plan isn't to allow illegals in, but to make it easier to get work visas, which is what they come here to do. This would not only register said immigrant, but it would free up law enforcement to focus on the real problem with illegal immigration - the criminals. When it comes to criminals, Johnson's stance is very simple, and the same stance everyone takes."
