[On H.R.8, "Bipartisan Background Checks Act," imposing background checks on firearm transfers between private parties, which passed the House of Representatives 227-203-1 on 03/11/2021]: Wyoming Congresswoman and House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement after voting against both H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446, two bills led by Democrats that would infringe on Americans' Second Amendment rights: "I will always defend the Constitutional rights guaranteed to our citizens. These pieces of legislation represent an assault on the Second Amendment and are a direct attack by Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats on the freedom of the people in Wyoming and freedom of Americans across the country."
