MS Republican Congressman push back against House Democrats’ efforts to limit 2nd Amendment
Today, I voted against a Democratic authored bill that would punish law-abiding citizens by reducing their ability to defend themselves. This bill–H.R. 8–trades our Second Amendment rights for a false sense of security and does nothing to address the core causes of mass violence. pic.twitter.com/ZQcjKXa3mp

Democrats continued their assault on the #2A by passing HR 8 to limit your Constitutional rights to bear arms. I could not support this legislation.

HATTIESBURG AMERICAN – Deborah Delgado enters state Senate race: ‘She is the right person for this time’
For 18 years Ward 2 Councilwoman Deborah Delgado has been working to make Hattiesburg a better place. Now she wants to take that experience and use it at the state level.
Delgado has thrown her hat in the state Senate ring, hoping to gain the District 34 seat, currently held by Juan Barnett. The district encompasses parts of Forrest, Jones and Jasper counties.
Introducing Delgado, a Democrat, to a small crowd that gathered Wednesday night at the Laurel Train Depot, Forrest County Supervisor Rod Woullard said Delgado “is the right person for this time” to join the Senate race.
