New attempts to increase restrictions on gun owners are capturing headlines and consuming dinner conversations.

I firmly believe that law-abiding American citizens have the right to own firearms. But not only does the Obama administration seem to disagree with this view, they have now dispatched their campaign organization to rally the public behind new regulations on guns.

The Washington Post called this plan a “well-financed campaign in Washington and around the country to shift public opinion toward stricter gun laws…”

As an attorney, citizen, and your member of Congress, I will not stand for new attempts to further restrict your constitutional rights. Any law that seeks to limit the rights of law-abiding citizens from owning firearms is a step towards an out-right ban on firearms.

But the conversation cannot end with this note. With your help, we can spread this message from Mississippi to Washington. Please consider forwarding this to your neighbors so that our opposition to gun bans will resonate.

God bless,

Gregg Harper
Member of Congress
