"The founders had the right idea: No one ought to infringe the natural right of individuals to own, carry, and practice with weapons. In spite of their vision and intent, our rights have been infringed, tremendously.

So it's – it's really hard to say that this is the only meaning of that – of the amendments."

"Well, expect the Supreme Court to clear it up. And the Brady Center folks won't like what they see."
