Second Amendment

As a lifelong Texan, gun-owner and avid hunter, I know firsthand the importance of gun ownership to those of us who call the Lone Star State home. I am fully committed to supporting the Second Amendment as a protected right guaranteed to individuals in the U.S. Constitution.

My work in the Congress has earned me top ratings from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and Gun Owners of America (GOA). I am pleased to join with like-minded Members of the Congress to advance important legislation to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. As a Member of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and the Congressional Second Amendment Caucus, we are working to protect these rights from gun-grabbing extremists.

I am actively supporting legislation to ensure that those with conceal carry permits are able to carry from state to state. I have also cosponsored legislation to ensure that firearms owners are able to transport their firearms from one state to another without having them confiscated.

The Second Amendment states very clearly that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” I will continue fighting to ensure that law-abiding citizens maintain this right.
