Minutes after the U.S. president laid out a 23-point plan for gun control, Gov. Phil Bryant and House Speaker Philip Gunn said they would block any federal measures limiting the right to bear and possess arms from being enforced in Mississippi.
Gunn said bad people, not guns kill. He said Mississippi is a rural state and in some places it can take law enforcement 15 to 20 minutes to respond to an emergency at a home in a rural area.
“Guns are the only protection some people have,” Gunn said.
Bryant said he isn’t opposed to background checks and enforcing laws already on the books, but he doesn’t believe in limiting the type of guns or ammunition a person can possess.
Bryant said criminals will still be able to get assault weapons and ammunition, and a ban would only hamper law abiding citizens who use their weapons for sporting or self-protection.
