Last week, I honored the life and legacy of Dennis Davis on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. He was a U.S. Army Veteran and the Cabinet Secretary for the West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance. I also commemorated Women’s History Month. West Virginia has a wonderful history of women who played a prominent role in shaping our country.
In Congress, I’m proud to cosponsor legislation that will help protect and defend your Second Amendment rights and ensure the safety of you and your families. Last week I defended your right to keep and bear arms against the radical left’s gun control agenda.
It is imperative that students safely return to school for a greater level of in-person instruction. That’s why I joined my colleagues last week in writing a letter to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) urging them to reconsider their K-12 school operational strategy. We must focus on giving students the education they deserve as a key part of our economic recovery.
Defending the Second Amendment
Last week the House voted on two bills, H.R. 1446 and H.R. 8, which restrict your gun rights. Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats are still working hard to defund the police and eliminate your Second Amendment rights. Meanwhile they are safely under the protection of gun-holding U.S. Capitol Police and National Guardsmen behind a seven-foot-tall, razor wire fence here at the U.S. Capitol.
Why shouldn’t law-abiding citizens in West Virginia also be able to protect yourselves and exercise your Second Amendment rights?
Please see the link to my full video on this legislation and what I’m doing in Congress to protect your right to keep and bear arms here.
House Democrats last week passed radical legislation that would infringe on Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Law-abiding citizens should be able to protect themselves and exercise their Second Amendment rights. We must defend the Second Amendment.
