I have always been a strong believer that an armed citizenry is a free citizenry. The simple fact is a clear majority of Americans support gun rights. I promise to continue to be a strong and proud supporter of the Second Amendment by fighting every effort to infringe upon this unalienable right.
As a member of the NRA, I am proud to stand with our Founding Fathers and their vision for individual gun ownership. During my time in Congress I have consistently fought excessive use of executive orders aimed at infringing upon law-abiding citizens’ right to bear arms.

Last week President Obama delivered his State of the Union address to the nation. I was pleased with the president’s tone throughout his speech and his praise for the critical energy mission that is ongoing at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Unfortunately, most of his speech was much of the same rhetoric and failed promises we have heard before.
