Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) today released the following statement after Vice President Joe Biden indicated that the White House would pursue gun control through Executive Order.

"If President Obama wants to impose his radical gun control agenda on the American people, he needs to bring a bill to Congress where it can be fully heard and debated. Any attempt to go around Congress by using an executive order would meet total opposition. The American people will not stand for yet another end-run around Congress by this president.

"The Constitution does not allow the President to make law through Executive Order. That right is reserved for the Congress."-- Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
