Rogers Reacts to Obama Gun Control Proposals

January 16, 2013

     Congressman Mike Rogers made the following remarks in response to President Obama’s announcement of the White House’s efforts to pursue new gun control policies.

         "I will continue to strongly support the Second Amendment.  In that regard, I oppose any effort to reinstate an assault weapons ban, add restrictions on accessories, restrict ammunition purchases or construct further limitations on the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens. Additionally, I strongly oppose any Executive Order issued by the President designed to circumvent the legislative process and limit gun rights.”

         President Obama created a taskforce led by Vice President Biden to develop recommendations for new gun control measures.
