Democratic Senate Challenger


Absolute right to gun ownership

Q: Do you support the statement, "Absolute right to gun ownership"?

A: Support.

Source: Email interview on 2008 Senate race with OnTheIssues.org Sep 11, 2008

Restricting access to guns is not a solution

As a gun owner myself, I understand and appreciate the importance of protecting an individual's constitutional right to bear arms. As an attorney, I have taken an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and I hold that oath sacred. That means defendin all of the Constitution. We don't get to pick and choose.

Americans understand the responsibilities that come with gun ownership. While crime involving guns is a problem, restricting law abiding citizens' access to guns is not a solution.
