Congressman Jeff Duncan Reacts to Biden’s Statement Regarding Executive Action on Gun Control

web posted January 10, 2013

WASHINGTON DC – On Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Obama was strongly considering taking executive action on guns. "The President is going to act,” Biden said. “There are executive orders -- executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the Attorney General and all the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action, we believe is required."

South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan responded sharply by stating “The Founding Fathers never envisioned Executive Orders being used to restrict our Constitutional rights. We live in a republic, not a dictatorship.”

“The President should not be able to act unilaterally when it comes to our Constitutional rights. Executive Orders were meant as a way for the president to implement legislatively passed laws, not to make law,” said Duncan.

“I will use every means at my disposal to combat the agenda of the Executive branch to undermine our Second Amendment rights. I will also fight any legislative action that is taken to implement more gun control. Americans don’t want their Second Amendment freedoms restricted in any way and I will continue to fully support the right to bear arms for all law abiding citizens,” said Duncan.
