Long opposes new executive actions against gun rights

Washington, DC, January 6, 2016

Congressman Billy Long (MO-07) issued the following statement following President Obama’s announcement of executive actions to restrict Second Amendment rights for law-abiding Americans:

“After 7 years, it's certainly not a surprise that President Obama continues to treat the Constitution and the legislative powers it grants Congress as mere suggestions that he doesn’t need to follow,”said Rep. Long. “As a former law professor he knows it's not his prerogative to change the law to bypass Congress and the will of the American people. This is just the latest example of the president infringing on the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens. I oppose these executive actions and will continue fighting to protect the Second Amendment.”
