“To be unwilling to defend and debate Second Amendment rights on
the Senate floor would be like joining the Grand Ole Opry and being unwilling
to sing.”– Lamar Alexander

WASHINGTON, April 11 – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today made the
following statement on the U.S. Senate’s decision today to consider gun
legislation:



“I’m always ready to defend and debate the Second Amendment constitutional
rights of Tennesseans. In fact, I look forward to sponsoring and voting for
amendments that strengthen those rights. To be unwilling to defend and debate
Second Amendment rights on the Senate floor would be like joining the Grand Ole
Opry and being unwilling to sing.”

 

In its most recent ranking of the senator, the National Rifle Association gave
Alexander an “A rating.”
