Senator discusses his efforts toward protecting the Second Amendment. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) talks to NRA members at the Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum in Phoenix, Arizona from Washington, D.C., where Congress is currently in session. He reassures the audience that it has a "friend in the White House," and tells members about his most recent actions to protect the right to keep and bear arms. As a senator, Baucus stood up against Attorney General Eric Holder to strike down the reinstatement of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, and he also helped his fellow legislators overturn the Defense Department policy on spent brass casings. As chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Baucus says he is working to change the way firearms and ammunition manufacturers pay excise taxes, and he asks for the support of the NRA community in his endeavors.
