Johnny “Joey” Jones is a retired United States Marine. He suffered a life-changing injury while deployed to Afghanistan as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD/Bomb) Technician. Since his recovery, Jones has dedicated his work towards improving the lives of all veterans and their families.
“I was stopped by the FBI at a New York City airport because they thought my passport was in Baghdad last year,” (Johnny “Joey” Jones) said. “My point is the government can’t use their own systems correctly… if you apply for a ‘Class-3’ firearm it could take three months or 12 months, under the same name, so the point is we can’t use the systems we have today correctly, why would the American people hand the federal government the opportunity to screw it up even more.”
Second, Jones contends that many Americans, who support the 2nd Amendment, don’t fully understand the gun control debate, and Democrats take advantage of that.
“[Democrats] use universal background checks because they know the American people — the portion of them that aren’t experienced with firearms, believe that means what happens today, which is when you walk into a gun store you do a background check to purchase a firearm,” concluded Jones. “The American people believe that’s what they’re trying to sell now… a lot of those Americans that aren’t experienced on the issue do believe in the 2nd Amendment and support the (Americans’) right to use it.”
