Gun control is your index finger...

So says former Representative Allen West.  He is right, of course.  He claims that gun control is a political agenda, nothing more...  He is right about that, also.

~~~~~~

Former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) said gun control comes down to the finger you pull the trigger with, calling the larger discussion on gun violence part of a "political agenda."
"This is your gun control, this finger right here -- your index finger," West said in an interview with Newsmax TV. "Nothing happens with that gun until you put that finger into the trigger well and you pull it. So my concern is that we’re not talking about the real issue, we’re talking about a political agenda."

Stay safe.

I've read the Second Amendment several times, and it does not mention "gun control" at all.

People tend to forget that the states' constitutions composed at that time clearly provide that all citizens have the right to bear arms.

No doubt about that.
