2nd Amendment Protection

Where I Stand

The right to keep and bear arms is enshrined in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.  The federal government should protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to own firearms.  During my years in Congress, I have been a consistent voice on behalf of gun owners and have opposed legislation that seeks to chip away at the constitutional rights of Americans.
