Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie announced Thursday that he will chair the recently revived second amendment caucus. Recent election results have given members an opportunity and desire to push back against many erosions of liberty we’ve seen over the last decades.
“The recent election results present us with a new opportunity to advance pro-gun legislation and reverse the erosion of the Second Amendment that’s occurred over the last few decades. I look forward to working with the new President and this determined group of conservatives to promote a pro-gun agenda,” Massie stated.“Preserving the right to keep and bear arms is essential to maintaining freedom and liberty in our country,” said former Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA), who chaired the caucus from 2009 through 2013. “I’m honored that Representative Massie will build on the foundation that I established with this caucus.”“With so many laws disarming the poorest and most vulnerable people in our society and others who face real threats to their and their family’s safety, it is reassuring to know that the Second Amendment Caucus is there to ensure people’s safety,” said John Lott, economist and author of The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies.
