The Second Amendment is an important issue to our district and to my work in Congress.
I grew up in Northern Michigan, exploring the woods and hunting for deer. I know how important the right to bear arms is to our culture, and our safety. I am committed to defending the 2nd Amendment through all of my votes in Congress. In fact, the National Rifle Association has given me an A+ rating for my work on this issue.
I have supported a number of pieces of legislation that support our 2nd Amendment rights. My support also includes the introduction of legislation that protects the right to hunt and fish on federal lands, consistent opposition to universal background check legislation, and co-sponsoring the National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. I believe in the right for every law-abiding American to own a firearm for personal protection and sport, and I will continue to fight for that in Congress.
