As a gun owner and avid hunter, I believe our Second Amendment rights are critical. The right to own firearms is under constant attack by those who want to limit, and in some cases, end gun ownership by individuals. We must continue to protect the right of law abiding citizens and sportsmen to own and carry firearms.
Last session, I introduced the Firearms Freedom Act, which exempts the state from any federal rules or regulations regarding firearms, ammunition, or firearms accessories that are manufactured and retained in Minnesota. I strongly opposed efforts to repeal our concealed carry law.
I proudly received the endorsement of the NRA in my state representative elections.
