As a lifelong hunter, fisherman, and general sportsman, I am a strong and vocal defender of our Second Amendment rights. During the first session of the 115th Congress the House passed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act which prevents law-abiding citizens who legally carry a gun with them, from being penalized for the patchwork of varying state laws. As a lifetime member of the NRA I promise that I will continue making sure your constitutional rights will never be infringed. I will continue working with the president and my colleagues in Congress to make sure we pass common-sense solutions.

Along with preserving the 2nd Amendment, I believe we must defend our right to recreational fishing and hunting. In May of 2017, NOAA attempted to make the Red Snapper season a mere 3 days long. Knowing the shoddy reporting of data directly influenced this decision, I helped lead the effort in highlighting this issue to the administration. Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross, turned our request for an extended season into a reality and announced an additional 39 days to the season. I will continue to work with the administration to ensure that federal bureaucrats don’t regulate our right to hunt and fish.
