Welcome to Congressman Larry Bucshon

Representing the 8th District of Indiana

2nd Amendment

I am a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and will always fight to protect this vitally important right.  The Founding Fathers understood that an individuals’ right to bear arms, as provided in the Bill of Rights, was essential to securing our personal freedoms.  I firmly believe that law abiding citizens exercising their 2nd Amendment rights deter crime.

Additional rules and regulations preventing firearms ownership only endanger law abiding citizens.  The solution to reducing gun violence in the United States is to strictly enforce existing laws and sentence offenders to the longest prison terms possible.  I will fight to protect the 2nd Amendment from activist judges or elected officials to weaken this fundamental right.
