Endorsement from the National Rifle Association (NRA)

The National Rifle Association (NRA) recently announced their endorsement supporting my re-election campaign to the North Carolina State Senate for District 1. I'm a strong supporter of our 2nd Amendment rights, and I have drafted legislation to protect those rights. Data clearly shows a link between concealed carry laws and declining crime rates. Based on statistics from the FBI’s Annual Uniform Crime Report, right-to-carry states that widely allow concealed carry, have 22 percent lower total violent crime rates, 30 percent lower murder rates, 46 percent lower robbery rates, and 12 percent lower aggravated assault rates, as compared to the rest of the country. Recognizing the implications of this data during the previous legislative session of the N.C. General Assembly, we expanded the number of places that someone with a concealed carry permit can carry firearms to protect themselves and their families.
