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.
