Second Amendment

I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, and I will work tirelessly in Congress to ensure that our constitutional rights are never infringed.  I do not believe an assault rifle ban would be a wise or useful policy.  I do, however, believe we have an obligation to do our best to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and those that are truly mentally ill in order to protect our families and friends.  Therefore, I am open to considering legislation that requires background checks for all guns sold at gun shows so long as the background checks remain quick and efficient, do not lead to any national registration of firearms or gun owners, and does not extend to sales between private citizens.
