Earlier this year a presidential candidate made headlines when he declared he was coming for our guns. But here in California, our state government has for decades led an attack on law-abiding gun owners. Big-city politicians have armed security for themselves, but they want to deny High Desert residents that same security in their own homes. As your County Supervisor, I’ll fight to protect legal gun owners against any state or federal government that would threaten them. The right to self-defense is the fundamental freedom that enables other freedoms and I’ll never allow the county to interfere in the right of law-abiding citizens.
