Editor’s Note: We are pleased to post the latest of our occasional Q&A features with an elected official who supports hunting and the shooting sports. NSSF thanks U.S. Rep. Cory Mills (R-Fla.) for agreeing to talk with us. Rep. Mills is a U.S. Army combat veteran and is serving in his first term in Congress. Rep. Mills serves on the House Committees on Armed Services and Foreign Affairs.


1) Who introduced you to hunting and the shooting sports?

My grandfather introduced me to hunting and shooting sports. Growing up, we didn’t have a lot of money, so when we hunted, we would store the meat in a large freezer to eat for a long period of time.

2) Describe your most recent hunting or shooting sports activity.

My most recent shooting experience was last month in Florida. My staff and I shot with rifles and machine guns.

3) Describe your favorite shooting sports or hunting activity.

My favorite hunting activity is deer hunting, and I like long range and precision fire shooting.

4) Which piece of pending legislation related to the firearm industry is particularly important to you and why?

I’m proud to cosponsor a resolution to stop the ATF’s pistol brace rule. We must stop unelected bureaucrats who think they’re lawmakers and protect the Second Amendment.

5) What do you see as the challenges and opportunities for hunters and shooting sports enthusiasts?

I think one of the greatest challenges is the availability and cost of ammunition and hunting land, especially in Florida where we are currently seeing over 900 people move to Florida every day.
