Bishop Introduces Bill to Protect and Defend 2nd Amendment
Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) has introduced H.R.2620, the Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act. The Act will eliminate ambiguity in current code that could lead to the restriction of certain types of firearms and ammunition that are used for self-defense. This legislation will curtail the ability to interfere with the rights to obtain and use firearms for lawful purposes. Bishop offered the following statement: “The Founding Fathers were clear when they drafted the Bill of Rights. The 2nd Amendment is about security and self-defense. Vagaries in today’s legal code pose a real threat to the right to keep and bear arms. The Obama Administration exploited this ambiguity to forward its agenda of restriction. It’s time to ensure no future Administration tramples on these freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution.” Chris W. Cox, Executive Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action said: "On behalf of the NRA’s 5-million members, I

The Secretary now has another Utah ally to address the fish and wildlife issues in America, and while the scenery is much better in Utah, Greg’s outlook will be a welcome addition to Washington.”
