The United States Constitution was written to balance individual freedoms and governmental powers — it gave vast new powers to our government but it also aimed to sharply limit them. The many freedoms outlined in the Constitution are held up and protected by our right to bear arms. Unfortunately, in recent years, we have seen an astounding amount of legislation aimed at limiting your second amendment rights. We need to actively combat any legislation that infringes on the right to bear arms and most importantly we must protect and defend this right for future generations.
I pledge to ALWAYS defend our second amendment right. The terminology "shall not be infringed" is clear in its intention and is too often overlooked. I will NEVER vote in favor of a bill that limits your right to protect yourself and those you love most.
