Cornyn Offers Amendment to Exempt Soldiers and Veterans from Assault Weapons Ban

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) offered an amendment to exempt all U.S. military personnel and veterans from a proposed ban on Assault Weapons during a markup of new gun control legislation in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Cornyn's amendment, which did not pass, received bipartisan support.

"Members and veterans of the Armed Forces are the most highly-trained and qualified individuals to own these weapons for self-defense purposes. We should think long and hard before disarming these heroes, preventing them from protecting their families and communities."
