The 2nd Amendment

As a life-member of the NRA, I am proud to have received previous NRA endorsements in all of my legislative races to date. In Congress, I will continue my record of supporting legislation that protects our right to keep and bear arms. I am proud to have received an A rating from the NRA based on my legislative voting record, and I will continue to stand up for the rights of sportsmen and gun owners.
