New York Congressman Looks To NRA For Help On Legislation

posted on June 19, 2017

A New York congressman told Fox News over the weekend that he is working with the National Rifle Association on legislation to protect legislators following last week's attack on a GOP congressional baseball practice, according to a report at thehill.com

“None of us have protection other than the leaders,” Collins told “Fox and Friends.” “I am working with the NRA on some legislation that might be able to make common sense and to assist members of Congress and their staff in being able to protect themselves.”

Collins added: “We need to keep ourselves and our staff safe, and that's a right guaranteed by the Second Amendment.”
