Police Protection: No police department should ever have less fire power than the criminals they are trying to take down! As your legislator, I will help them help us. They put their lives on the line everyday so we can live in peace within our towns and cities. Is it so much to ask they be able to do their jobs with every tool of defense available to them?
Preventing Crime: What is more satisfying than taking down a criminal? Stopping children from becoming one!! Teen Challenge is an excellent example of helping kids back on the right path. The State should encourage organizations like this one.
I object to any attempt to "Nationalize" our local law enforcement agencies. The less power and authority the Federal Government has over the states, the better
