Description

I am committed to the right of every American to protect and defend themselves, their homes, and their families. Some people would have us believe that by eliminating guns we would eliminate crime. Too many people have forgotten the historical reasons and the significance of the second amendment. It goes beyond "the right to keep and bear arms." It was adopted by our forefathers to give us the right to defend ourselves, our families and our liberty, not only in the time of war but also in the time of peace. I am a firm believer that we, as citizens, need to fight to preserve and defend the U.S. Constitution, especially the inalienable right to keep and bear arms. It reads: "...the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." I am a proud supporter of the NRA and GOA. I am a hunter and have processed more wild game than most people. I am a father who spends time shooting with my four small children and using that time to explain the meaning and intent of the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment. And I believe in our right to carry guns and I think we should expand that right back to the intent of the original amendment. It is time that we again look to the road map of our founding documents and the words of our founding fathers. They clearly write about protecting individual liberty and freedom above other things in the government. When I read the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, I am struck by the ideals of rugged individualism and providing all Americans the opportunity to pursue their own happiness. When we honor our Founding Fathers words we will see a bright future for ourselves and our children.
