2nd Amendment Rights

I am a strong proponent of Second Amendment rights under the United States Constitution.  I believe that law-abiding adults should be free to exercise their right to purchase, own, and carry firearms for the protection of their homes and families.  I received an A+ from the National Rifle Association for the 110th Congress (2007-2008) and the 111th Congress (2009-2010) as well as an A rating during the 112th Congress (2011-2012) and 113th Congress (2013-2014).
