The Constitution guarantees the individual's right to keep and bear arms. I am strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Hunting is a large part of our family heritage and I enjoy hunting with friends and family. My family also runs a hunting operation, so I know firsthand the economic importance hunting has in our state.
In the State Legislature, I sponsored the Firearms Freedom Act ensuring that firearms and ammunition manufactured and sold in South Dakota, and remain in South Dakota, are not subject to federal regulation. If elected to Congress, the first vote I will cast will be to fire Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, who is not a friend of gun rights.
