NRA: Sen. Jeff Sessions ‘will work tirelessly’ to defend Americans’ gun rights
National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action Executive Director Chris Cox in a recent column lists ways U.S. Attorney General Nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has helped protect law-abiding Americans’ right to bear arms, including his support of nationwide right-to-carry legislation.
Sessions has voted to prohibit firearms confiscation during a declared state of emergency, and has opposed bans on America’s most popular firearms, calling them “the essence of gun ownership today.” He has also voted in favor of a national right-to-carry amendment, which would remove the confusing patchwork of state gun laws that often ensnare law-abiding gun owners when they travel from state to state.
Finally, and importantly, Sessions supports programs such as Project Exile, which ensure that violent criminals who misuse firearms are sent to federal prison. When implemented in Richmond, Virginia back in the 1990’s, Project Exile caused the crime rate in that city to fall dramatically. Sessions knows what he is talking about. As a U.S. Attorney, Sessions prosecuted criminals who used guns.
Sen. Sessions knows the value of our Second-Amendment rights and the need for all law-abiding Americans to be able to defend themselves and their loved ones.
