The second amendment provides an essential right
There is a reason why our Founding Fathers found it necessary to make the Second Amendment to our Constitution the right to keep and bear arms. This is a principle rooted in our Republic whereby we are a government of the people, by the people and
for the people. But the right to own firearms is more than just a check on tyranny; it is a fundamental right that free citizens be allowed to protect and defend themselves.

I will defend Arizona's Second Amendment Sanctuary law
Steve declared his candidacy for Governor--once again challenging establishment Republican candidates. His campaign is focused on grassroots participation, and on solving tough issues that the Arizona politicians have failed to address.
A lifelong member of the NRA, Steve is a strong conservative who believes in opportunity, freedom and our constitutional republic.
As a lifelong member of the Arizona Citizens Defense League, and a former federally licensed firearms dealer, I understand the Second Amendment as an individual right to own firearms.
As Governor, I will defend Arizona's Second Amendment Sanctuary law and ensure its enforcement. I oppose any attempt at "Red Flag" laws because their enforcement violates the Second and Fourth Amendments.
