•    Reduce the size and scope of government
•    Decrease infringements on free enterprise, including taxation and regulation
•    Oppose the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), including expanding Medicaid
•    Strengthen state sovereignty and return power to local control
•    Preserve natural, individual rights, including the right to keep and bear arms

The right to defend one’s life, liberty, and property against aggressors is fundamental and universal.  Our district needs a pro-gun champion who will oppose any legislation that restricts the right of individuals to purchase and carry firearms.  Strict gun control laws do not lower crime.  In fact, they have historically resulted in the disarmament of innocent, law-abiding citizens, leaving them defenseless against aggressors, who by definition as criminals ignore the law.

“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” 
~ Samuel Adams
