Second Amendment

The Jury Has Spoken

| Posted in Blog

The jury has spoken! After sitting through the entire trial… After seeing all the evidence… After deliberating for several days… the jury UNANIMOUSLY found Kyle Rittenhouse NOT GUILTY on all five charges. It infuriates me to look back at how – long before that verdict was reached – the media (and many Democrats) laid waste to Kyle, his family, his presumption of innocence until proven…

An Exhausting Week, but Well Worth It

Summer 2021 Town Halls

It's been an exhausting week, but well worth it. We just wrapped up a series of in-person town halls all over the district, and I want to thank the hundreds of people who showed up. It was great to see and hear from so many folks! Also a special thanks to Rep. William Timmons who joined me in Spartanburg, the dozens of law enforcement officers who kept us all safe, and all the venues…

Town Halls Next Week

| Posted in Blog

I'll be hosting seven (7) live, in-person town halls next week all throughout the congressional district. If you're interested in a legislative update from Congress and an opportunity to ask questions, this is your chance! Here's a link to my events page with details. We have a wide range of starting times, between noon and 5:30 PM, and a wide variety of venues. If you can't make it to…

Concerns About Biden's Top Lieutenants

| Posted in Blog

Should someone who worked to undermine ICE be allowed to now lead that agency? Or what about someone who worked as a gun control lobbyist – should that person be nominated to lead the ATF? At any large organization, it’s the top lieutenants who drive the boss’ directives. Such is the case with the Executive Branch of our federal government, and that’s why it’s important we know about…

One-Way Ticket to a Socialistic Welfare State

| Posted in Blog

The agenda outlined by President Biden on Wednesday night is a one-way ticket to a socialistic welfare state with astronomical taxes, and government encroaching on every aspect of our lives.  His vision for our nation involves growing the size of almost every corner of the federal government. (With the exception of our military, to nobody’s surprise.) There’s simply no room to talk…

Clarifying the Firearm Owners’ Protection Act

| Posted in Blog

On the 2nd Amendment front, last week I co-sponsored an important new bill that seeks to clarify rules about the lawful transport of firearms. For context, back in 1986 a law was passed called the Firearm Owners’ Protection Act (FOPA).  Among other provisions, that bill “protects those who are transporting firearms for lawful purposes from local restrictions which would otherwise…

Unlike Any Other State of the Union Address

| Posted in Blog

Two totally different worlds – two completely different mindsets – were on full display last night. It was unlike any other State of the Union address I’ve seen, either in person or on TV. There were a couple of themes to the President’s address. First, he took a well-deserved victory lap on numerous fronts: from the economy & trade to our military & war on terror. We must always…

Telephone Town Hall

| Posted in Blog

Over the summer, I hosted eight (8) town halls in-person around the district.  We covered Lancaster, York, Cherokee, Sumter, Newberry, and Union Counties.  It was great to see so many people come out for those events, and I look forward to doing many more in the future. Even though my in-person events are very well-attended, the truth is that telephone town halls allow me to…
