I support the natural, unalienable right to self defense that the Article 1, Section 23 of the Texas Constitution and the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution are designed to protect.

We made great progress in shoring up protections for those rights in Texas law in the 87th Legislative Session in 2021.  The biggest dangers we face to the right to keep and bear arms at the moment comes from the federal government, and my legislative focus will be to shore up Texas legislation to enable us to effectively resist the violations of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions by federal agents.

We can do more to expand where Texas law allows Texans to legally carry, as well.
