Second Amendment

I firmly believe that the right to bear arms is one of the most basic rights we have as American citizens.  That was what the Founding Fathers believed, and they forever protected it with the Second Amendment. As your representative in Congress, I will continue to strongly oppose any attempts to infringe on those rights, and will be a strong voice against attempts at further gun control.

In the past several Congresses, I have been a co-sponsor and champion of bills such as H.R. 367, the Hearing Protection Act, and H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. These bills would ease access to firearm silencers by removing a burdensome tax on them, and allow Americans who lawfully possess a concealed carry permit in one state to enter into another state, so long as that state allows for concealed carry.
