Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) today released the following statement after President Obama signed 23 executive orders pertaining to gun regulation.

"I look forward to thoroughly reviewing the President's plan and examining the Executive Orders to make sure he is not bypassing Congress."

"I am skeptical of President Obama's call to reinstate an assault weapons ban. Gun bans have proven ineffective in the past. Congress should certainly consider the president's ideas and allow them a full hearing through the normal legislative process. However, whatever action, if any, that Congress takes, must not infringe upon the Second Amendment." -- Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
