Like many others from rural America, firearms are a part of my daily life. I am an avid hunter, sportsman, competitive shooter, and reloader. Far beyond a hobby or even passion, firearms are a part of our national heritage. We use them to hunt, protect livestock, and provide peace of mind when law enforcement may be miles away. As the Attorney General of Montana, it is my duty to defend the rights of the citizens of our great state and ensure the safety of our citizens.
