Rep. Bishop Responds to Executive Actions on Gun Ownership

Rep. Bishop (UT-01) released the following statement after President Obama’s announcement of various executive actions on gun control:

“The President is out of touch. He is exploiting tragedy for political gain. His proposals would not have prevented the recent tragedies our nation has endured. His requirements will not make the country safer.Criminals, not the countless citizens who obey the law, should be punished for their crimes. Enforcement of our current laws is how we keep guns out of the hands of bad guys, and until this administration faces reality, no amount of pageantry will protect us.”
