In this speech at a Second Amendment Rally in Vernal, Utah, Sutherland Institute President Paul Mero discusses the conservative approach to gun rights and responsibilities:

"Responsible citizens have rights; irresponsible citizens have diminished rights -- and a free society requires us to be responsible (our founding fathers called it 'virtuous') .... When we defend bad behavior in the name of some imagined absolute individual liberty, we hurt the cause of freedom .... The experience of our founding fathers shows that the possession of guns alone doesn't make us free. They had guns. What they didn't have was freedom."

The speech was given Aug. 10, 2013.
