Joe Heck on Gun Control

 


Supports 2nd Amendment & rights of sportsmen

As a father, military officer, and first responder, Dr. Heck firmly supports our 2nd Amendment Rights and the rights of sportsmen across the state of Nevada. He respects the proud heritage of Nevada sportsmen and understands the importance of passing on our hunting and fishing traditions to future generations of Nevadans. The rights of Nevada's citizens to use public lands needs to be defended and access expanded to promote the sporting activities which are so firmly rooted in Nevada culture.

Opposes restrictions on the right to bear arms.

Heck opposes the CC survey question on right to bear arms

The Christian Coalition voter guide [is] one of the most powerful tools Christians have ever had to impact our society during elections. This simple tool has helped educate tens of millions of citizens across this nation as to where candidates for public office stand on key faith and family issues.

The CC survey summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: "Further restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms"

Recognize heritage of hunting & shooting on federal lands.

Heck signed Recreational Fishing & Hunting Heritage & Opportunities Act

A BILL: To recognize the heritage of recreational fishing, hunting, and shooting on Federal public lands and ensure continued opportunities for these activities.

    Congress finds that:
  1. recreational fishing and hunting are important and traditional activities in which millions of Americans participate
  2. recreational anglers and hunters have been and continue to be among the foremost supporters of sound fish and wildlife management and conservation in the US
  3. recreational fishing and hunting are environmentally acceptable and beneficial activities that occur and can be provided on Federal public lands and waters without adverse effects
  4. recreational anglers, hunters, and sporting organizations provide direct assistance to fish and wildlife managers and enforcement officers by investing volunteer time and effort to fish and wildlife conservation
  5. recreational anglers & hunters, and the associated industries have generated billions of dollars of critical funding by providing revenues from purchases of fishing and hunting licenses, permits, and stamps, as well as excise taxes on fishing, hunting, and shooting equipment
  6. recreational shooting is also an important and traditional activity in which millions of Americans participate, safe recreational shooting is a valid use of Federal public lands, and participation in recreational shooting helps recruit and retain hunters and contributes to wildlife conservation
