Second Amendment
We must expand the 2nd amendment rights of all Texans. It’s unfortunate that other states are leading the way in expanding gun rights while Texas lags behind.

Open Government
The actions of a government of the people, by the people and for the people should be open and transparent to its citizenry.

Without life, there can be no liberty. So the first duty of civil government should be to protect innocent human life.
