One of our most basic and fundamental rights is the right to protect ourselves. I believe this right should be expanded and encouraged on every front. As a member of Congress, I will oppose any efforts by the federal government to create a federal database of gun owners and work tirelessly to protect each and every right guaranteed to the citizens by the U.S. Constitution.
As a State Representative, I earned an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association for my work at the legislature fighting to protect the rights of the people of Colorado. I introduced legislation known as the “Make My Day Better” law. This legislation extends to business owners the same self-defense protections that are granted to homeowners in Colorado.
I have been recognized by the National Association of Gun Rights and the Gun Owners of America for my efforts to defend the 2nd Amendment.
