In the email, Screnock describes himself as a proud gun owner who enjoys “carrying on our passion for the outdoors with my three adult sons.”

He also writes about the importance of upholding the rule of law, protecting public safety, and respecting the Constitution and the separation of powers. He does not make any promises to the NRA about how he would rule on cases involving guns.

The election is April 3.
