Ross Spano on Gun Control



Background checks infringe Second Amendment

Ross Spano voted against H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019: "The Second Amendment is quite clear--'the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed'. If enacted, I believe it would make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and their families. I did not support this bill, nor will I support tomorrow's bill, which imposes burdensome requirements I do not agree with or support."
