Congressman Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) said on "Fox & Friends" that he is working with the National Rifle Association on a new policy that will keep his colleagues safe.

Collins said he and the NRA want Congress to be protected in the wake of the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and others in Alexandria, Va.

He said that when he tours a festival this weekend in Nunda, N.Y., near Geneseo, he will have sheriffs' deputies accompany him.

Collins said he is able to use his concealed carry permit at home in New York, but that the even-stricter gun laws in Washington, D.C. prevent him from doing so there.

He added that the showing of Congressional solidarity at the recent charity baseball game is proof that policy and ideology are the only things that separate Republicans and Democrats.

He said that legislators get along on a personal basis and leave their differences on the House or Senate floors.
