BOISE, Idaho - U.S. Senator Jim Risch today joined a group of his Republican colleagues in signing a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), which states his opposition to legislation that would infringe upon Second Amendment rights.
“Idahoans are strongly against any further erosion of their Second Amendment rights. Legislation that restricts the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans is not the answer to the issues facing our nation,” Risch said. “I will continue to oppose any legislation that will infringe upon a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.”
The letter, initially authored by Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), assures Senator Reid that the signatories will “oppose any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms, or on their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance.”
