2ND AMENDMENT & SCHOOL SAFETY
The 2nd Amendment helps protect the 1st Amendment as well as our other rights. I am a staunch defender of the 2nd Amendment. I will do all within my power as a state legislator to protect our constitutional right to bear arms.
As a parent of children in school, I favor taking common sense, local decision-making approaches to increase the safety of our children at school. These solutions may include drills, line of sight markers, doorstops, and future building design systems as determined at the classroom, school and district level. I am concerned about reactionary responses to recent events that may seek to infringe on 2nd Amendment rights or seek to place guns in the hands of teachers that may not want them, may not have the correct training, or may not have safe locations for storage of firearms. I am open to local measures that protect our children, but I am against reactionary solutions.
