Second Amendment

Congressman McKinley is a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights and as a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association, he will fight to defend the Second Amendment from those who wish to erode gun rights.

The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States protects the fundamental right of an individual to keep and bear arms, including for purposes of individual self-defense. Congressman McKinley has co-sponsored legislation to protect the rights, privileges and immunities guaranteed to a citizen of the United States.

Despite a push in the last few years to limit the ownership and sale of firearms to law-abiding citizens, Rep. McKinley stands by your Second Amendment rights. There are better ways to limit the impact of gun violence in America. Part of that solution includes enforcing and reviewing existing laws, and changing how government and society deal with mental illness.

While considering a range of legislative proposals, Congressman McKinley continues to stay focused on promoting gun safety and protecting the Second Amendment rights of American citizens.
