WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) Monday issued the following statement strongly opposing the president’s proposed executive action restricting firearm sales and impinging on Second Amendment rights:

“President Obama sees himself as a Constitutional lawyer, but he has never recognized that it is Congress that makes laws. It is particularly important when we are dealing with something as heated and emotional as gun control. He needs to make some attempt at getting people to come together when he is dealing with the Second Amendment, which is one of the most important freedoms we have. I believe the enforcement of existing laws and rigorous prosecution of criminals is the best way to protect Americans – not more gun control.”
