I come from a family of sportsmen and avid hunters and, as a gun-owner myself, I understand the importance of protecting our Second Amendment rights. Years ago when our family-owned pharmacy was robbed at gun point we were able to protect our family of employees by exercising our Second Amendment rights. I believe all Americans should have the right to defend themselves. Rest assured that I will oppose efforts to restrict our Second Amendment rights.
I have co-sponsored the following pro-Second Amendment legislation in the 117th Congress:
- H.R. 38:The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. This legislation would provide a means by which nonresidents of a state whose residents may carry concealed firearms, may also do so in the state.
- H.R. 95:The Hearing Protection Act. This legislation wouldamend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to remove silencers from the definition of firearms, and for other purposes.
- H.R. 993: The Second Amendment Preservation Act. This legislation would remove federal funding from enforcing gun control.
