Congressman Holding Responds to President Obama's Statement on Gun Control

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Today Congressman George Holding (NC-13) released the following statement in response to President Obama's remarks on gun control:

"We need a thoughtful discussion about the best ways to protect our citizens, but I am concerned that the President's proposals go too far. Protecting American families is essential, but we need to recognize the difference between millions of law abiding American gun owners and a few deranged individuals. Any future action must be carefully considered in light of our right-to-bear-arms as defined in the Constitution and affirmed by the Supreme Court. When I was a U.S. Attorney, I wasn't shy about working with local law enforcement to go after criminals with illegal guns and that's where our focus should be moving forward."
