Issue Position: Second Amendment
I oppose any and all efforts to mandate gun control on law-abiding citizens. I staunchly support gun ownership and, as a gun owner myself, I believe we have a constitutional right to do so.
The Second Amendment guarantees the right of individual, law-abiding citizens to own and use firearms.
I was a co-sponsor of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act which was signed into law in 2005 and will shield gun manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits intended to limit gun ownership.
Congress does not have the authority to decide what firearms Americans should be able to possess for lawful purposes. I support allowing national concealed carry reciprocity, shielding gun manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits, repealing the unconstitutional gun ban in our nation's Capital and other measures designed to preserve the right of innocent Americans to protect themselves and their families.
