The right of Virginians to carry firearms is an essential one stretching back to colonial days. In recent times, that right has increasingly come under threat from Richmond as well as our city halls. If elected, I promise to fight to keep the right to bear arms intact for stable, law-abiding citizens.

Further, we and our children deserve clean, safe streets. This comes from effective, intelligent, diligent, and tactful police being devoted the time, training, and resources to fight crime effectively; not by disarming lawful gun-owners.
