The right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right, enshrined in the Second Amendment of our Constitution. It is deeply embedded in the American ideals of self-reliance and independence. Whether used for hunting, sport, or self-defense, Colorado gun owners proudly embody this American spirit.
As Governor, I will protect the rights of law abiding gun owners and fight back against efforts to limit our Second Amendment freedoms.
I support repealing the misguided 2013 gun control laws that limit Second Amendment freedoms and caused job creators like Magpul to flee our state.
We all agree that our children are Colorado’s most precious resource and I support giving local communities the ability to empower teachers to voluntarily carry firearms in case they are ever presented with the worst case scenario.
Responsible leadership will require further addressing the mental illness challenges we face in Colorado and I will be a responsible voice in the debate to find solutions that protect our children and our citizens.
