The 2nd Amendment

As a gun owner, I am committed to ensuring that the federal government never infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens to bear arms. I will not stand by and allow the Democratic agenda of Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and Ted Kennedy to take away our right to bear arms.

More specifically:

- I support legislation to increase concealed to carry permits.

- I will strongly oppose any effort to require the mandatory purchase of trigger locks or gun safes.

- I will strongly oppose any effort to tighten restrictions on gun sales between private citizens.

- I will strongly oppose any effort to require citizens to register all their firearms with the federal government.

- I will strongly oppose any legislation aimed at punishing gun manufacturers or gun dealers from crimes they did not commit. Mainly, I will oppose allowing these parties to be held liable for crimes committed by people who use the gun they sold or manufactured.

"If circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizensÂ…who stand ready to defend their rights and those of their fellow citizens." Alexander Hamilton
