Stutzman to chair gun initiative

Republican Study Committee Chairman Steve Scalise today announced that Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, will chair the newly created 2nd Amendment Initiative for the 113th Congress’ Republican Study Committee.

“President Obama’s radical anti-gun agenda is a threat to our constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” Scalise said. “We will not allow President Obama and liberals in Congress to take away our right to bear arms, and I am glad that Marlin Stutzman agreed to spearhead the RSC’s 2nd Amendment Initiative where we will fight each and every day to protect our constitutional right to self defense.”

Stutzman said he is honored by the selection.

“The President’s out-of-touch agenda is based on misinformation and will infringe on the freedoms of everyday Americans,” Stutzman said. “The RSC has held the line on conservative, common-sense principles for years and I am proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with my colleagues in this cause.”
