Congressman Murphy is a firm supporter of the Second Amendment.  He fundamentally believes in the constitutional right to bear arms for law-abiding citizens so they may protect themselves and their families.

He also is an original cosponsor of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which would allow constituents to carry concealed firearms between states that allow for such methods of carrying. This right should never be infringed upon and, as a personal sportsman, Dr. Murphy will continue to fight for the Second Amendment rights for North Carolina’s Third District.

North Carolina’s Third District is home to roughly 95,000 veterans, which is the 3rd biggest district population in the United States. Dr. Murphy knows the importance of veterans assistance and healthcare, and will continue to pioneer and support legislation that helps those who risked their lives for our nation.

Dr. Murphy is fully committed to improving the broken and long-overdue needed healthcare system for veterans. These brave men and women have sacrificed so much for our freedom. Military families have his full support and he will do everything to ensure quality, yet cost-effective healthcare for our military members.

As a devout Christian and staunch believer of the unalienable right to life for all, Dr. Murphy is a proud supporter of pro-life issues. Dr. Murphy has had a lifelong allegiance to the unborn and the right-to-life.

He has been at the tip of the spear as liberals like Speaker Pelosi have tried to strike down the Hyde Amendment and other pro-life provisions. The Hyde Amendment has been included in every government funding bill since 1976, with wide bipartisan support. Dr. Murphy has cosponsored numerous other bills to protect the lives of the unborn.

As a practicing physician of over 30 years, the issue of healthcare and cost-effective relief is of utmost importance to Dr. Murphy.  He has spent his career fighting the high-cost of prescription drugs and the lack of access to quality, on-time care for patients.  As Vice Chairman of the Congressional Doctors Caucus, he will fight to make the healthcare system work for patients.

Thanks to President Trump and House Republicans passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the tax rates for hard working families are at historic lows.  Yet thanks to out of control government spending, the fight for lower taxes for the American people must continue.

Dr. Murphy has spent his time in Congress fighting to simplify the tax code for working families and to lower the rates they have to pay, regardless of income. As our debt continues to rise irresponsibly under democratic rule, he has pledged to cut the amount of money the government spends annually.

The United States has fought diligently in controlling this international pandemic, and it has found unprecedented ways of providing vaccines, healthcare, and small business relief to those affected . As a Doctor and a Member of Congress, Dr. Murphy believes a measured approach that protects compromised groups is and would have been a better approach than broad restrictions on the economy.  He also worked closely with the Trump Administration in their efforts on Operation Warp Speed, which developed a COVID 19 vaccine in record time.
