On the Issues

Protect the Second Amendment:
Dr. Douglas is 100% pro-gun and will fight against any attempt to disarm law abiding-citizens, including red flag proposals. He supports making Kentucky a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State and ending gun free zones.
Economic Development and Growth:
Dr. Douglas has a multi-pronged approach to promoting economic advancements in the 22nd District and Kentucky as a whole.
