Protect the Second Amendment
I understand, as did our founding fathers, the importance of “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” Since the birth of our nation, we have managed to address challenges while also safeguarding our constitutional rights and liberties. Our current time is no different. We are right to be concerned about episodes of senseless violence, and we are right to identify ways to address the challenges of our day. The solution to these challenges, however, cannot abridge our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Our district is full of responsible hunters, sportsmen and enthusiasts who need a representative who focuses on real solutions to the problems of violence and mental health, without pointing the finger at the vast majority of our law-abiding citizens.
