The United States Bill of Rights affords us very important freedoms. The freedom to bear arms is essential in protecting our lives, liberty, and personal property. I am a strong proponent of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.  The highest court in this nation firmly ruled that the right to bear arms cannot hastily be infringed by the state or federal government. As your senator, I will support the right to constitutionally carry a firearm and oppose red-flag laws, federal gun control measures, and any legislation that violates our 2nd Amendment.
