U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) issued the following statement after President Obama addressed Americans in a speech which would unilaterally mandate new gun control measures.

“Today, the President announced he is going to circumvent Congress and the Constitution and unilaterally mandate his own gun control agenda. Not only is the President, once again, ignoring the checks and balances of our government, he is infringing on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. The recent tragedies that have happened across our country are incredibly painful. However, the President’s executive actions do not solve this problem. I will not stand for the President’s actions and I will continue to support the Constitution, including the Second Amendment.”
