As a member of Congress, Glenn Thompson has demonstrated his commitment to our Second Amendment rights. Thompson cosponsored concealed carry reciprocity legislation which would provide a national standard for carrying concealed firearms, in addition to cosponsoring legislation that would reform the of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). Most recently, Thompson signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief arguing that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans in the McDonald case.
