Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) has voted for H.R. 2406, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act of 2015, to preserve our nation’s sporting heritage.
“Sporting is an important tradition and industry in Kentucky and also a part of our nation’s rich heritage. This bill will expand access and opportunities for our sportsmen and women to participate in traditional outdoor sporting activities including recreational shooting, hunting, and fishing,” said Guthrie.
H.R. 2406 protects Second Amendment rights and facilitates reasonable access to federal lands for outdoor sporting activities. Specifically, this legislation promotes greater coordination between states and federal land management agencies to support shooting ranges, prohibits federal agencies from regulating lead ammunition or fishing tackle, and allow law-abiding citizens to carry firearms on land managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.
“We need to keep federal agencies in check so that they do not place unnecessary and burdensome obstacles in the way of our nation’s sportsmen and women who wish to celebrate our rich sporting heritage,” said Guthrie.
