Former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R) said he supports the Second Amendment and any legislation that strengthens the ability to protect oneself.
During a recent interview, the current U.S. Senate candidate made it clear he was the strongest supporter of the Second Amendment. This comes after his opponents allegedly claimed he was in opposition of the state’s “Second Amendment Preservation Act.”
This measure prohibits any federal laws restricting gun ownership and the ability to enforce any laws or actions that violate the Second Amendment rights of Missourians. The Republicans further talked about his support for President Trump and his policies regarding gun laws and law enforcement.
Greitens further discussed his campaign and said if he’s elected, he won’t be supporting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), adding Republicans don’t need him. He also emphasized how Congress needs to get rid of Senate RINOs like McConnell and others who fail to represent the values of the party.
The former Navy Seal went on to highlight how he wants to do more to protect the American people from vaccine mandates, foreign threats and the open southern border. He also added how the U.S. military is in jeopardy of losing troops because of Joe Biden’s federal vaccine mandate.
In the meantime, the former governor said he’s ready and committed to fighting for a seat in the Senate.
