Bill Flores on Gun Control

 

 


2nd Amendment is as fundamental as rest of Constitution

Protecting Our 2nd Amendment Rights: I am a gun owner, a Concealed Handgun License holder, and a Life Member of the National Rifle Association (NRA). As such, I am fully aware that the 2nd Amendment is as fundamental to our American heritage as every other part of the Constitution. I will always support our 2nd Amendment and stand in the way of those who wish to criminalize this important right of our citizens.

Opposes restrictions on the right to bear arms.

Flores opposes the CC survey question on right to bear arms

The Christian Coalition voter guide [is] one of the most powerful tools Christians have ever had to impact our society during elections. This simple tool has helped educate tens of millions of citizens across this nation as to where candidates for public office stand on key faith and family issues.

The CC survey summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: "Further restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms"

Loosen restrictions on interstate gun purchases.

Flores co-sponsored Firearms Interstate Commerce Reform Act

Congressional Summary:Amends the federal criminal code to:

  • allow licensed firearms dealers to sell or deliver any firearm (currently, rifles or shotguns) to any state if the licensee meets with the purchaser and the transaction complies with the laws of the state in which the transfer is conducted and the purchaser's state of residence; and
  • eliminate the requirement that a licensee must conduct business at a gun show only in the state that is specified on the licensee's license.
  • Nothing in this Act shall prohibit the sale of a firearm or ammunition between licensed firearms dealers at any location in any state.

    Proponent's Comments (NRA-ILA, Oct. 14, 2011): This bill would remove several antiquated and unnecessary restrictions imposed on interstate firearms business since 1968:
