Civil Liberties

Jon believes strongly in protecting Montanans’ right to bear arms and right to privacy. He has voted to protect Americans against all forms of federal government overreach that violate these precious Constitutional freedoms.

As a gun owner, Jon has voted against legislation that would violate Montanans’ Second Amendment rights and hinder the ability of law-abiding citizens to purchase and own a gun.

Jon also fought hard to repeal the most intrusive aspects of the PATRIOT Act, which he believes violate Montanans’ right to privacy, while pushing back against those who try to undermine the Fourth Amendment.

Jon has also introduced legislation to expand civil liberties for law-abiding Americans and has opposed efforts to allow Internet Service Providers to collect and sell people’s private web browsing histories.
