Congressman Rob Bishop

Representing the 1st District of Utah

Bishop Votes to Uphold 2nd Amendment

February 27, 2019
Press Release
“… politics ought never trump the Constitution.”

The House of Representatives voted on HR 8. Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) voted against the legislation and issued the following statement:

“This bill addresses a fabricated threat and makes criminals out of the innocent. This equates to nothing more than a false sense of security promoted by those who refuse to address real threats to safety. Congress should turn its attention to finding ways to protect society from criminals. Instead, this farcical effort betrays the 2nd Amendment and would have done nothing to prevent the tragic mass shootings of recent years. Safety ought to trump politics and politics ought never trump the Constitution.”
