Second Amendment

The Bill of Rights provides us with the freedom to keep and bear arms, and we must continue to uphold and safeguard the Second Amendment.

In the 115th Congress, I introduced the Collectible Firearms Protection Act to ensure that collectors can import collectible rifles and carbines that were made in America and sent overseas to the same extent that Americans can buy and own other legal firearms of the same make. This legislation rolls back bureaucratic hurdles impeding the rights of firearms collectors.

I am also a proud cosponsor of the Hearing Protection Act, which would enable suppressors—devices that reduce the risk of hearing damage sustained while shooting—to be purchased in the same way as long guns by removing the application and tax.

I have cosponsored the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. Law abiding citizens have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and that right shouldn’t end at state borders. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would ensure that individuals who lawfully obtain concealed carry permits in their home states can exercise their Second Amendment rights when visiting other states.
