The Constitution is the foundation of our great country and our government. As such, the Second Amendment must be defended to the fullest extent. I proudly have my concealed carry permit and encourage responsible gun ownership.
As a mother of three, I also understand the importance of school safety. In regards to the senseless tragedies that have recently plagued our schools, I believe it is important to examine all aspects of school security, including access control, surveillance, Student Resource Officers, and mental health challenges, to best ensure the safety and peace of mind of students, parents and educators. I do not consider placing restrictions on citizens’ constitutional rights to keep and bear arms an effective solution.
