I believe all life is sacred and every person has dignity, value, and a right to life. We share a responsibility to protect the lives of unborn children. I have made it a priority to push for pro-life policies and will continue to represent the values of southwestern Pennsylvania in Washington D.C. by supporting legislation that protects the sanctity of life.
The Constitution declares that gun ownership is not a privilege reserved for a select few, but a protected and fundamental freedom guaranteed for all law-abiding citizens. As a gun owner, I am committed to protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens to purchase, possess, and use firearms. Simply put, I do not support erosion of the Second Amendment.
