As a conservative opinion writer, I find it deeply troubling to witness President Joe Biden’s continued attempts to undermine our Second Amendment rights. His recent call for an assault weapons ban on Twitter has been met with rightful concern and opposition from Republican voters and gun rights advocates.
The fact remains that the Second Amendment exists to protect our right to bear arms. Instead of focusing on restrictive gun control measures that could potentially infringe upon our constitutional rights, we should be addressing the underlying issues that lead to violence in our society.

The responses to Biden’s tweet highlight the strong sentiments held by many American citizens. Individuals like Ryan Petty, founder of the WalkUp Foundation, and defense attorney Marina Medvin, remind us that gun control measures are not a panacea for increased safety. Furthermore, former Republican Congressional candidate Jack Lombardi II’s invocation of the Second Amendment underscores the importance of protecting our rights.
As conservative Americans, we must remain steadfast in our defense of the Constitution and our Second Amendment rights. It is crucial that we continue to challenge attempts to restrict these rights and work towards constructive solutions that will genuinely improve public safety and address the root causes of violence. We must not allow our rights to be eroded by misguided policies and proposals that fail to target the real issues at hand.
