U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04) joined Representatives Steve Scalise (R-La.), Ralph Abraham (R-La.), Andy Barr (R-Ky.), Clay Higgins (R-La.), Alex Mooney (R-W.Va.) and David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) to introduce The Firearms Interstate Commerce Reform Act, a bill to remove statutory burdens on law-abiding gun owners and improve the legal firearm purchase process for law-abiding U.S. citizens and active-duty military.

Johnson said via an emailed statement, “Our constitutional rights should never be dependent upon our location, and the Second Amendment should be no exception. Licensed firearms dealers should not have their businesses hindered by the federal government if they are adhering to the laws in each state in which they are operating. I am proud to join my good friend and colleague, Congressman Steve Scalise, and several others in sponsoring legislation that will protect the rights of law-abiding citizens, while ensuring safe and responsible gun laws are maintained.”

"Our Second Amendment rights don’t stop at the state line, and I’m proud to work alongside Steve Scalise on this bill that will ensure that Americans can enjoy those rights in their entirety throughout the United States,” said Abraham.
