Second Amendment

As a lifelong sportsman, I am committed to protecting the right to bear arms for law-abiding individuals in Montana and across our country. I strongly oppose any efforts from Washington to restrict our Second Amendment rights and our way of life in Montana, and I will work to ensure that Congress protects the Constitutional rights of the thousands of Montanans who safely and lawfully possess or use a firearm.

I believe private-sale background checks, assault firearm bans, and magazine limitations, among other proposals, would not change the underlying problems behind violent crimes. I believe we need to strictly enforce current laws forbidding potentially dangerous persons from possessing a firearm, but I will continue to stand firmly against any proposal that undermines Montanans' Second Amendment rights.
