Your 2nd Amendment Rights
Endorsed by National Rifle Association 2012
I am an avid supporter of your 2nd Amendment rights. You have my word that I will be a steadfast advocate for legislation that protects our rights to bear arms in Nevada.
The Second Amendment to the Constitution: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
I believe in the Second Amendment, and the right to keep and bear arms. And, I believe in the Second Amendment in the spirit in which it was written
The right to keep and bear arms is a right that our nation's Founders believed belonged to free citizens, and a right that we are ensured by our Constitution.
Our Founders knew, first hand, the danger of a government growing too powerful and too eager to strip its citizens of their own self-protection and autonomy. The Founders wanted to make sure that ordinary citizens had -- by law -- the right to physically protect themselves from danger.
Our Constitutional authors knew that citizens who let their own government disarm them could never be truly civil or free.
As your representative in the Legislature, I will always protect your right to keep and bear arms. I will fight any legislation that infringes on your right to protect yourself and your family from harm. For me, this is not just a legal and Constitutional issue it is a moral one.
