U.S. Representative K. Michael Conaway (R-Texas) issued the following statement today reiterating his support for ensuring and protecting Americans' Second Amendment rights:
"Our Founding Fathers saw firsthand the importance of ensuring and protecting the right to keep and bear arms. This right, enumerated in the Constitution, is a guarantee against tyranny and oppression.
"As a gun owner, I am proud to defend the Second Amendment and the constitutionally protected right of Americans to keep and bear arms. I will continue to fervently oppose legislation that would impinge on the freedom and rights of law-abiding Americans to own and carry firearms."
