Protecting Our Gun Rights
I am 100% committed to protecting your right to keep and bear arms under the U.S. and Montana Constitutions. I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right, not a collective right. I also believe the solution to violent crime is the enforcement of existing laws that punish criminals who use firearms and other weapons in the commission of crimes, not restricting the ability of law-abiding citizens to own firearms. Because the Montana Attorney General has a tremendous amount of power when it comes to representing our state’s views in federal litigation, I will not only monitor nationwide litigation and get involved to protect Montanans’ interests and Constitutional rights, but I will initiate litigation when appropriate to contest unconstitutional gun laws.
Our firearm heritage is something we must pass on to future generations, which is why I will provide and participate in public education and public dialogue on gun right and gun safety issues. I will also work with other states to ensure reciprocity in gun laws such as state concealed carry permit laws.
