Womack Statement on House Democrat Gun Ban Bill
Washington, July 29, 2022
Washington, DC—July 29, 2022….Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the following statement after upholding the constitutional rights of law-abiding Arkansans and Americans by voting against House Democrats’ misguided gun ban legislation:
“Neither the White House nor Congress has the authority to disregard the Constitution. This bill punishes law-abiding citizens and infringes on their inherent right to self-protection and defense. It goes as far as implementing avenues to turn many who enjoy recreational and sports shooting, including duck hunters, into felons. Focusing on legislation that wrongly vilifies those who cherish their fundamental liberties prevents us from implementing effective solutions to stop crime and senseless violence.”
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011. He is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
