I believe the 2nd amendment is as important as the first. As a veteran, I understand the importance of defending oneself. I disagree with many members of my own party that we should be banning certain types of weapons. I particularly do not care for the word "ban" in any free society.
I would like to see more education for military style weapons. Hunting is an essential part of many Pennsylvanians livelihoods, whether it is to put food on the table or hunting for sport. I fully support the 2nd Amendment, but feel that we must have an open dialogue on gun safety.
