Today, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) released the following statement responding to President Obama's proposed executive orders and legislation on gun control:
"The President needs to focus on the real problem in our country -- the exploding debt that is putting our children and grandchildren's future at risk. The debt limit debate needs our President's undivided attention. Instead, he is focusing on punishing law-abiding citizens who value the legacy of protected freedoms enshrined in our Constitution. I am a firm believer in our right to bear arms, and I will strongly oppose any efforts by this President to try to erode our Constitutional Freedoms - especially by undermining our Founding Fathers and impressing his will by Executive Order."
