The right to bear arms is an American fundamental. John is a gun owner himself and is a strong supporter of both the 2nd Amendment and the NRA. He supports open carry in Florida and concealed carry reciprocity among states. John does not support the idea of a national firearm registry or a ban on semi-automatic firearms, their magazines or ammunition. He believes that guns don’t kill or injure, people do. To that end, he supports stiff penalties and tough sentencing for criminals using firearms in the commission of a crime. John believes weapons enhancements like “bump-stocks” should be regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms in accordance with their current set of regulations.
