The Issues

2nd Amendment

I am a strong supporter of an individual’s right to keep and bear arms, as guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. When the National Rifle Association released its most recent grades for legislators, I was proud to receive an A+.

I strongly support the right of law abiding citizens to possess firearms. The government must not infringe on the right to keep and bear arms. Highly restrictive gun control laws have not been shown to reduce crime rates.

We all have an interest in keeping weapons out of the hands of dangerous felons. The key to protecting the public is to enforce current laws and to make sure guns are kept away from those that are not entitled to possess them.
