Congressman Steve Russell

Representing the 5th District of Oklahoma


Second Amendment

As a proud gun owner and founder of a small rifle manufacturing company, I strongly believe that the Second Amendment protects our individual right to keep and bear arms.  Gun-related tragedies generate pressure to pass restricting legislation, but they would simply undermine the rights of law-abiding citizens without accomplishing their intended purposes.  I will oppose all legislation that unconstitutionally restricts the right to keep and bear arms.
