WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement regarding President Obama’s executive action on  firearms: 

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “The President’s aversion to gun rights and the Second Amendment has been blatantly clear throughout his tenure, as has his disregard for the checks and balances on power put in place by our Founding Fathers. Nothing he outlined today would have prevented any of the horrific tragedies perpetrated by bad actors in recent months. Instead of inflicting burdensome and repetitive government regulations on law abiding gun owners, the President must work with Congress to not only identify the root causes of gun violence in this country, but also to find and implement real, Constitutional solutions.”
