WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins released the following statement today after President Obama issued 23 “executive actions” on gun violence in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy:

“I share the President’s goal of preventing criminals and individuals with mental illness from acquiring firearms. So, ideas that deal with improving criminal databases, instant background check systems, and mental health resources are areas I am interested in reviewing. Unfortunately, his legislative proposals to ban firearms and prohibit private sales will result in little more than reducing the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans, and are ideas I cannot support.”
