The right to keep and bear arms should not be considered differently, and I will never vote to infringe your Second ...

Vehicle Attacks, the Second Amendment, and a Free Society I was saddened to hear of the recent terrorist attacks in Spain. A terrorist drove a van into a popular Barcelona street packed with pedestrians and other members of the same terrorist cell rammed a car into a crowd in the seaside town of Cambrils.

Griffith Champions Amendment to Defend Civil Liberties, Protect Lawful Transportation of Firearms

“Current federal law or the Second Amendment of the Constitution should neither be misinterpreted nor ignored to prevent law-abiding, responsible gun owners from traveling throughout the country with firearms so long as they are in compliance with federal law while in transit. I am pleased my colleagues have joined me in supporting this amendment, and will continue working to protect Second Amendment protections for law abiding gun owners, hunters, and sportsmen.”
