NSSF PROFILE Q & A: U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)
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. We thank U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the Ranking Republican Member on the House Judiciary Committee, for agreeing to talk with us.
1) Who introduced you to hunting and the shooting sports?
My dad introduced me to hunting and shooting. He is a big outdoorsman. When we were young, he got us the Red Rider BB gun and taught us how to shoot. He’s a big deer hunter. He even built his own recurve bows. All of this was just part of growing up at our house.
2) What was your most recent hunting or shooting sports experience?
My most recent shooting experience was when we went out and visited the United States Concealed Carry Association in Wisconsin. I got to shoot handguns and then we got to shoot an AR-15. We had a great time.
3) Describe your favorite hunting or shooting sports activity.
My favorite activity is target shooting. I really enjoy shooting AR-15’s on the range.
4) What are your priorities related to the Second Amendment and why is the firearm industry particularly important to you?
Democrats want to take away all your freedoms. They’ve come after your First Amendment freedoms, your Second Amendment freedoms, your Fourth Amendment due process freedoms. To me, it’s simple, we need to fight for these freedoms and make sure these rights are protected for generations to come.
5) In your role leading the House Judiciary Committee, what do you see as the challenges ahead for Second Amendment advocates, hunters and shooting sports enthusiasts heading into the next Congress and battling Democrats’ antigun agenda?
The main thing is to win this upcoming election in November so the Democrats can’t do anymore harm. That way, we can to try to undue recently enacted red flag laws and keep the Democrats from taking your guns.
