Second Amendment

As a strong supporter of the Second Amendment right of Americans to keep and bear arms, I have repeatedly opposed attempts in Congress to violate or limit these freedoms. Our Founding Fathers established a Bill of Rights to our Constitution to make sure that American citizens can live in freedom without government intrusion. I stand with Kansans in my efforts to protect these valuable freedoms.

While much needs to be done to prevent violent crime in our nation, more restrictions on responsible, law-abiding firearms owners are not the answer. We must enforce all of our existing gun laws, which are extremely effective in protecting law-abiding citizens from each other, and use our legal power to prosecute criminals who misuse firearms to the fullest extent of the law. I will continue to support the freedoms of Americans and oppose any legislation before Congress that violates our gun rights.
