Franks on Gun Control: American People Will Not Roll Over

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) released the following statement following President Obama's press conference announcement today of 23 gun control executive orders he plans to implement:

"It is rather telling that the day after Republican Members read the U.S. Constitution on the House floor -- a bid to encourage the whole body to recommit to the principles we're sworn to defend -- the President of the United States is today holding a press conference detailing his plans to attempt to weaken the 2nd Amendment -- a foundational provision of that very same foundational document. Moreover, he seeks to implement his policies without so much as consulting Congress or American voters.

"Much to Mr. Obama's chagrin, ours is not a government run by fiat. The American people have shown quite clearly that they will not simply roll over while this Administration seeks to undercut our founding principles in pursuit of its preferred European model of government."
