Second Amendment

The Founding Fathers valued the right to bear arms so much that it was included as the Second Amendment to the Constitution. I believe that our right to keep and bear arms is as important today as it was then. I also believe that it is unwise to blame lawful gun ownership for criminal acts. Congress cannot remove evil from this world through legislative action. We can fight crime by holding criminals accountable for their actions, not by disregarding the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and adding layers of gun control that would do little to nothing to protect our citizens.

I will continue to support and protect our rights afforded under the Second amendment which allows us to secure the safety of our homes and families.
