Senator David Perdue Statement on President Obama’s Latest Executive Actions

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement after President Obama announced several new executive actions:

“President Obama is again attempting to use executive action to govern, only this time he is threatening the Second Amendment. Any changes to our nation’s gun laws deserve serious public debate and must protect the rights of law-abiding citizens. Understandably, Georgians and citizens across the country want us to do all that we can to prevent further incidents of mass gun violence in the United States. Unfortunately, by once again choosing to circumvent the people's representatives in Congress, President Obama has only served to undermine the Constitution and further polarize this issue.”
