Congressman Higgins issued the following statement:
“Our legislation would ensure American citizens can freely exercise their Constitutional rights and freedoms. The bill strengthens Second Amendment protections and eliminates federal barriers for law-abiding gun owners. This is one of the most comprehensive pro-Second Amendment bills in the history of Congress. We, the People, will not sit idly by as Democrat elitists attempt to jeopardize all of our Constitutional freedoms by gradual oppression of our Second Amendment rights. Their agenda will be countered. We will fight. Legally, peacefully, and within the parameters of the Constitution… We will stand, and we will not be disarmed.”
