I support the right to make, keep, carry and prudently use firearms for self-defense, provisioning, and sport. I support legislation that declares that firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition made and sold in Texas are not subject to federal regulation and that all unconstitutional actions by the federal government to encroach upon these rights should be resisted by the State of Texas. Similar legislation is now law in Montana and Tennessee. Individual ownership and competence in the use of firearms are essential for maintaining freedom. I am a life member of the NRA, Gun Owners of America, and the Texas State Rifle Association. I am proud to say that the NRA has given me an "A" rating based on my candidate survey response!
