Congressman Lucas Statement on President’s Gun Control Announcement

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today made the following statement after President Obama announced his proposals on gun control.

“President Obama’s announcement that his Administration will be using executive actions to implement additional gun control is deeply troubling to me. Bypassing Congress to implement stricter gun laws is not the solution to preventing violence in our country. In the wake of recent tragedies, I believe it is important for leaders of our country to take a step back and calmly evaluate all factors, including mental health factors, contributing to recent tragedies. I can assure my constituents in the Third District I will fight against the president’s gun control agenda and oppose any attempt to instate new laws infringing on citizen’s Second Amendment rights.”
