Dustin Peyer: Education, not regulation and confiscation

I believe it is the right of Americans to protect themselves. The government should be involved in gun education, not confiscation. Hunters safety should be reinstated into schools. I believe all citizens should be trained in self defense, private property rights, gun use, cleaning, proper storage, capacity, and capability as a requirement to graduate high school. This would result in safer, stronger, responsible communities. Education not regulation is key.

Doug Burgum: Obama has overreached on gun control

On guns, Burgum said the president has overreached. "Obama has to be the greatest president ever for the gun industry," he told me. "The more he tries to take away gun rights, the more gun sales go up. If we're trying to solve the problem for safety with children in schools, let's address that. If we have to solve the problem with mental health, let's do that.
