On Wednesday President Barack Obama announced the 23 Executive Actions that would shape the administration's new gun control policy. Following the press conference, US Representative Cynthia Lummis issued the following response to the President's proposal:
"The President wants to trample on the Second Amendment and has called on Congress to ban entire categories of guns and ammunition, and in the process turning current law-abiding gun owners into criminals.
"He even wants to use Obamacare authorities to advance his agenda. There is a real danger in the President pushing this anti-gun agenda through Executive Order, where something that might sound acceptable on a talking points sheet could in practice affect the rights and liberties of American citizens. The stakes in this Second Amendment battle with President Obama could not be higher and Congress must keep a close eye on exactly how his 23 Executive Orders evolve."
