The Constitution gives Texans the fundamental right to own and carry firearms and to use them in defense of our lives and property. These rights should never be taken away. I have fought tirelessly to ensure that our Second Amendment rights are always protected. I helped author legislation to lower license-to-carry fees and reduce the classroom hours required to attain a CHL, as well as put penalties in place for government entities that improperly post signs restricting firearms where state law has already determined it is legal to carry. For my work over the past three sessions, I have been endorsed by the NRA and recognized with an A+ rating.
