Manchester - Frank Guinta announced today the formation of his Second Amendment Advisory Committee. The former mayor and current congressional candidate, a long time supporter of citizens’ rights to bear arms, was honored to earn the support of such distinguished leaders. Guinta went on to comment, “I believe that our Country needs to return to the common sense ideas laid out by the Founding Fathers and clearly encapsulated within the Bill of Rights. I will be a strong supporter of the Second Amendment to the Constitution and promise to work to repeal and oppose any law that restricts the rights of citizens to own firearms.”

Boyce, Coffey, Gagne and Welch all currently serve as State Representatives with Gagne and Welch serving on the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee.
