NC: Guns X3


Dear Mr. Townsend,

Thank you for contacting me to share your support for the Second Amendment and for protecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners. I would like to update you on what I am doing in Congress to look out for you and fellow gun owners.

As you already know, the Second Amendment is under attack more today than ever. I believe that the United States Constitution is crystal clear on this issue: the right to bear arms is a fundamental and individual right. That is why I have consistently supported initiatives to protect gun owners and reign in the Obama Administration. A few of the bills I am supporting in the 114th Congress include:

H.R. 2710, the Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act, which would remove the ATF’s authority to interpret “sporting clauses” in clauses in federal law. According to the NRA, “many federal laws that regulate the importation, possession and transfer of firearms measure the lawful utility of firearms based on their usefulness for so-called ‘sporting purposes’ which only serve to undermine the core purpose of the Second Amendment.”;

H.R. 986, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which would grant any person with a concealed carry permit to carry a concealed firearm in states that do not prohibit concealed carry;

H.R. 766, the Financial Institution Consumer Protection Act, which reigns in the anti-gun Operation Choke Point, which the Obama Administration has used to try to deny banking services to legitimate firearms businesses; and

H.R. 3516, the Social Security Beneficiary 2nd Amendment Rights Protection Act, which would deny the Obama Administration of the ability to deny 2nd Amendment rights to millions of seniors who have been deemed unable to handle their finances, or suffer from “incompetency,” or any other number of “diseases.”
Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts with you. The right to keep and bear arms is a most cherished constitutional right that I will continue to defend
