Representing the 6th District of Tennessee


2nd Amendment Issues

Click HERE to watch me defend gun rights on CNN.

As a firearm owner and a lifetime member of the NRA, I believe that our Second Amendment rights are fundamental and must be protected. I have been a proud supporter of pro-Second Amendment measures such as the National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act, which would protect handgun carry permit holders’ right to transport their concealed firearms across state lines, and the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act, which requires the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service to open public lands under their control for recreational hunting, fishing, or similar activities.

Additionally, I am the author of the Nondiscriminatory Transportation Screen Act, a bill that would allow the use of handgun carry permits as identification at airport security, as well as the FIREARM Act, which would prohibit the federal government from requiring gun buyers to answer intrusive, irrelevant questions regarding race or ethnicity at the time of their purchase.

I remain committed to safeguarding our vital 2nd Amendment rights and opposing further gun control from Washington. It’s time lawmakers in Washington read their Constitution and took these four words to heart: “shall not be infringed.”
