ICYMI: House Republicans Form Second Amendment Caucus

Well, it’s about time. House Republicans are forming a Second Amendment caucus that’s going to be chaired by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY). Stephen Gutowski of The Washington Free Beacon had more:

Caucus members will lead efforts in the House of Representatives to pass meaningful firearms legislation and protect Americans against infringements of the Second Amendment,” the group said in a statement.

Massie said the election of Donald Trump and Republican majorities in both houses of Congress were the catalyst for the formation of the caucus.


The inaugural members of the caucus are Republican Reps. Jeff Duncan (S.C.), Ted Yoho (Fla.), Brian Babin (Texas), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Mark Meadows (N.C.), Ken Buck (Colo.), Alex Mooney (W.Va.), Justin Amash (Mich.), Jody Hice (Ga.), Dave Brat (Va.), Warren Davidson (Ohio), Scott Perry (Pa.), and James Comer (Ky.).

A national concealed carry reciprocity bill is said to be on the docket for the 115th sessions of Congress. With the Supreme Court also on the frontlines of the Second Amendment debate, it’s refreshing that a collection of pro-civil rights lawmakers is banding together to protect one of our fundamental rights as Americans.
