Atascadero, CA – Today, in response to the Paso Robles Post Office’s removal of pictures commemorating our troops bravely serving abroad, Congressman McCarthy issued the following statement:
I am a strong supporter of our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. I believe that law-abiding citizens should not have this right infringed upon by numerous and burdensome regulations designed to deter law-abiding citizens from purchasing firearms.
I am concerned about both the GPO and the WEP and believe that legislation or administrative action is necessary to address both issues.
This resolution expresses Congress’ opposition to the United States entering in a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System or a North American Union with Mexico and Canada.
I am a strong supporter of our First Amendment rights and strongly oppose reinstating the Fairness Doctrine.
It is important to ensure the safety of motorists using our roads and highways, and all trucks hauling cargo in the United States must meet current U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and other safety regulations.
The State Children’s Health Insurance program (SCHIP) in California has helped about 850,000 low-income children in California. That is why I am a proud supporter of renewing SCHIP because helping low-income children receive health care is a value we all should support.
