Congress Re-Introduces Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act

The Obama Administration attempted to enact anti-Second Amendment actions by reclassifying ammunition for the AR-15 as "Armor Piercing." In 2015, Republican Congressman Rob Bishop (UT) introduced H.R. 2710, the "Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act of 2015." to stop that and other unconstitutional gun control measures. Unfortunately, the bill never made it out of committee.

In 2017, Congressman Bishop reintroduced the bill as H.R. 2620.

Bishop introduces bill to protect and defend 2nd Amendment

Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) has introduced H.R. 2620, the Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act.

The Act will eliminate ambiguity in current code that could lead to the restriction of certain types of firearms and ammunition that are used for self-defense. This legislation will curtail the ability to interfere with the rights to obtain and use firearms for lawful purposes. Bishop offered the following statement:

"The Founding Fathers were clear when they drafted the Bill of Rights. The 2nd Amendment is about security and self-defense. Vagaries in today’s legal code pose a real threat to the right to keep and bear arms. The Obama Administration exploited this ambiguity to forward its agenda of restriction. It’s time to ensure no future Administration tramples on these freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution."
