Opposed The Decriminalization Of Marijuana. “I’m completely against the decriminalization of Marijuana. I’m clear on that stance The war on drugs, and drugs, what it has done to our communities is disastrous. And we need to step up our efforts in going after these drug cartels. I always say that we should treat the drug cartels the way we treat the Taliban and Al Qaeda… there’s resources that we use overseas that we can use right here in our own backyard. And we need to start fusing intelligence operations with our local law enforcement operations.” [2010 4.1 TX23 Debate Part 2, 7:14]

In February 2016, Hurd voted for blocking consideration of a bill that “would lift a ban on allowing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes of gun violence … The CDC’s selfimposed prohibition has been in place since 1996. In the 1990s, the National Rifle Association accused the CDC of trying to use scientific studies to promote gun control, such as one that found having a gun in the home increased the odds for injury. Congress later threatened to cut the CDC's budget by the same amount the CDC was spending on gun violence research. Lawmakers also enacted legislative language prohibiting the use of funds to ‘advocate or promote gun control.’ The CDC has since then shied away from pursuing the topic. Republicans have continued to defend the ban.” The previous question passed, 237 to 180. A vote against the previous question would have allowed the bill to be considered. [H. Res.

Arrest would require probable cause to believe the person is transporting the firearm in a manner that is not provided for under standards outlined in the amendment. It also would provide for a defendant who prevails in asserting the amendment's provisions as a defense in a criminal case to be awarded reasonable attorney's fees.” The amendment was adopted 239-165. [HR 2406, Vote #96, CQ, 2/26/16] Voted Against Amendment To Not Allow A Person Prohibited From Possessing A Firearm From Using Public Target Ranges Voted Against Amendment To Not Allow A Person Prohibited From Possessing A Firearm From Using Public Target Ranges.
