NRATV: Ted Cruz Defends The Second Amendment Live At CPAC

During NRATV’s live CPAC coverage, Texas Senator and constitutionalist Ted Cruz fired up the crowd by pointing out the absurdity of the fourth circuit court’s Second Amendment test, which claims that the Second Amendment doesn’t protect a weapon if it would be useful in a military context. “This test isn’t just sort of questionable. It is nuts!” said Cruz.

Cruz went on, “The second amendment was designed explicitly to protect weapons that would be useful in a military context. Do you want to know the first gun control law in America? The first congress passed a law mandating that all able-bodied men must own a musket.”

“That’s an individual mandate we could live with,” said interviewer Mark Levin.
