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.
"Shall not be infringed", given to us by our Creator and guaranteed protection by our founders in the US Constitution.
Tragically, people lose their lives to violence every day across the globe. Criminals and mentally unstable individuals commit crimes and acts of aggression towards others. Criminals do not ask permission first and they have no regard for the law. It is currently estimated that there are over 25,000 gun laws currently in America. Many of these laws are not only ineffective and unconstitutional, but the laws actually designed to prosecute the criminals are often not being enforced. Unfortunately, we will never be able to legislate away evil.
As your Congressman, I will work tirelessly to defend the 2nd Amendment and oppose any legislation that violates a citizens right to bear arms.
I will never trade our freedom for a false sense of security.
