Second Amendment

I am a staunch and firm believer in the right to bear arms ensconced in the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. If given the privilege to return to the Senate, I will continue to fight for our Second Amendment rights and actively resist any attempt to abridge those rights. I am a proud member of the N.R.A.


“George is rated ‘A’ by the NRA and will be a strong supporter of the Second Amendment in the U.S. Senate. Gun owners can count on George LeMieux to fight to protect freedom and the Second Amendment.”

- Marion Hammer, former NRA president, Aug.29, 2009.
