Fletcher, Beshear Respond To AP Questions On Guns

By The Associated Press

QUESTION:
AP: What is your stand on gun ownership? Would you oppose/support initiatives to limit gun ownership?

ANSWERS:
Gov. Ernie Fletcher:
I support the protection of the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding citizens. I have a strong history in Congress supporting the Second Amendment and have worked as governor to maintain these rights for Kentuckians. Unlike my opponent, I do not believe that cities have the right to infringe on this essential element of the US Constitution, and I believe the Kentucky Constitution means what it says, that the "right to bear arms in defense of themselves and of the State" is an "inherent and inalienable right."

Steve Beshear:
I believe in the right to keep and bear arms.

QUESTION:
AP: Do you and/or your running mate own guns? What kind?

ANSWERS:
Gov. Ernie Fletcher:
Robbie (Rudolph) and both I own hunting rifles and shotguns.

Steve Beshear:
I own a 12-gauge shotgun and my running mate, Daniel Mongiardo, owns several weapons, including rifles, pistols, and 12-gauge shot guns.
