|Rep. Matt Schaefer|
Rep. Matt Schaefer (R-Tyler) spoke at an event hosted by Grassroots America We The People in Tyler, Texas on Saturday. He praised the Second Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms. Rep. Schaefer stressed the need to help the mentally ill, rather than subvert our constitutionally-protected right to own and carry firearms. I was very disappointed that KLTV 7 News in Tyler did not even mention the fact that Rep. Schaefer was present. He made an excellent speech, which I was able to record and post for you to watch. It is Rep. Schaefer's whole speech, unedited from start to finish.
I would appreciate a dialogue on this issue. Please comment below regarding Rep. Schaefer's comments and take a second to vote in our poll about the meaning of the word "militia" in the Second Amendment.
