As a proud gun owner and the wife of a competitive marksman, I firmly believe that the Second Amendment guarantees our individual right to keep and bear arms.

While our nation faces many daunting challenges, protecting our Constitutional rights should not be one of them.   When elected, I will defend the 2nd Amendment with honesty, clarity and unwavering resolve:

  • I will support the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act, requiring each state to recognize valid weapon-carrying permits from other states.
  • I will oppose federal firearm owner licensing requirements like fingerprinting, "proficiency" training fees, and other arbitrary conditions.
  • I will oppose any additional regulations on ammunition sales.
  • I will oppose any attempt at creating a firearm registry in America and will champion legislation to make local and state registration unlawful.

Please join #teamTP and help elect an honest conservative who will protect the American people from the federal government’s misguided attempts to restrict one of our most important civil liberties.
