On November 26 President Donald Trump warned that Democrat Doug Jones would be “bad for our 2nd Amendment.”
Jones is running against Republican Roy Moore for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama.
The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY. Jones would be a disaster!

On November 21 Breitbart News reported that Jones has been mum on his gun positions, but that has not prevented reporters from learning that he supports more gun control for gun shows. The Washington Post reported Jones saying that expanding background checks to gun shows “would be helpful.”
Jones’ overarching belief is that the Second Amendment has “limitations.” Moreover, he also believes that every natural right protected by the Bill of Rights is limited, and open to government regulation.
The Alabama Political Reporter quoted Jones saying, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.”
