Protecting the Second Amendment

I am a firm believer in protecting the right of law-abiding citizens to own firearms. This right is enshrined in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and I will continue to oppose any actions that would impede the use of firearms for hunting, self-defense, sporting or any legal purpose. At the same time, we must ensure laws on the books are strictly and effectively enforced so that guns stay out of the hands of criminals and those who abuse their right to bear arms.”—Pat Tiberi
