2nd Amendment Policy
Proudly Endorsed by Gun Owners of America
America is unlike any other country in the world. Our right to keep and bear arms not only allows us to protect our families and ourselves as well as allow us to hunt and shoot for sport, it puts a critical check on our government. I unashamedly support and defend our God-given and Constitutional right found in the Second Amendment. The right to keep and bear arms, along with the other rights found in the Bill of Rights, is fundamental to the foundation of America. Without the right of self-protection, tyranny is left unchecked and government encroachment on individual rights ensues.
So called “gun control laws,” which are supported and pushed by the Democrat party including my opponent inevitably result in an expansion of measures that limit those who use firearms in a responsible manner. We have seen this year in Virginia where these laws have put a chokehold on law-abiding citizens. We are now beholden to “red flag” laws, one handgun a month laws, and universal background check laws, among many others.
As a citizen and former supervisor on the Campbell County Board of Supervisors, I have a solid record of standing up for our right to keep and bear arms. As your Congressman, I will continue to do just that.
James Madison, who was the 5th District’s first Congressman to the House of Representative, framed the Second Amendment perfectly when he said, “Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people.”
