• Cooper Wrong on Second Amendment

    CONCORD, N.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement responding to Attorney General Roy Cooper’s call for more gun control in North Carolina:

    “I’m disappointed our chief law enforcement official is taking Nancy Pelosi’s lead and calling to suspend our constitutional right to due process. The fact is, everyday Americans could one day find themselves on the no-fly list just because they have a similar name as a suspected individual or because of a bureaucratic error. Roy Cooper is using a page from the Washington liberal playbook in another big-government effort to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. This irresponsible, knee-jerk reaction distracts from common sense steps we’ve taken to protect Americans like strengthening security measures in both the visa waiver program and the refugee resettlement program.”
