January 5, 2016
Press Release


WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman issued the following statement Tuesday (Jan. 5) in response to President Obama's executive orderson gun control:

“President Obama’s executive orders will not stop gun violence but will infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens to sell and purchase firearms," Westerman said. "His latest unconstitutional executive orders are simply his newest political power play. Ironically, these out-of-touch orders will boost gun and ammunition sales as Americans react to an overreaching administration bent on restricting our freedoms. We need a president focused on constructive solutions to America's real issues such as national security and our crippling debt that has skyrocketed during President Barack Obama's tenure.”
