The Second Amendment establishes an individual right to keep and bear arms. I will oppose all measures to limit this right.  The Second Amendment isn’t just about hunting and target practice: it’s about our rights as Americans to defend ourselves, and our families.  Criminals ignore the restrictions that gun regulations place on law-abiding citizens, and turn law-abiding citizens into criminals.

As a society, we should look for ways to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and those with untreated mental illness, but I strongly oppose the efforts by Barack Obama, and liberal gun-grabbing groups, to impose new Second Amendment restrictions on law-abiding, responsible gun owners through draconian laws, executive orders, and regulation.
