Rep. Tenney on Guns

Now, more than ever, support for the Second Amendment is crucial. While I support targeted efforts to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, I stand strongly against efforts by gun-grabbers to strip law-abiding Americans of their constitutional rights. — Rep. Tenney

These bills are going nowhere in the 117th Congress, but their sponsors will keep trying.
