Taylor is a gun owner, and a long-time member and supporter of the National Rifle Association.
The solution to violent crime is to enforce existing laws that punish criminals who use firearms and other weapons in the commission of crimes, not through taking away gun rights from individual citizens.
Taylor opposes firearm registration and state licensing of firearm owners.
Opposes legislation further restricting firearm sales by individuals at gun shows, and lawsuits suing firearm manufacturers for liability when one of their manufactured guns is used in commission of a crime.
Supports "worker protection" legislation that would allow law-abiding citizens to keep lawfully transported firearms locked in their personal vehicles while parked on publicly accessible, privately owned parking lots.
