I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment right to bear arms. I enjoy hunting to unwind from my daily duties as a restaurant owner. I take my 13-year old son Chase with me on hunting trips and have taught him that gun safety, responsibility, and conservation of our natural resources are obligations that come with gun ownership.
I believe if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Most guns used in crimes are purchased off the streets by one criminal from another, not from licensed gun dealers.
I am adamantly opposed to any measure that could or would weaken the right of law-abiding citizens to purchase, own and use guns, whether for recreational use or self-protection. I am likewise opposed to any attempts by our government at any level to restrict gun ownership or any efforts to impose further gun control of any kind. Creating more gun control laws is not the answer because criminals don't follow the law in the first place.
