Bill Armistead, Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party, issued the following statement regarding President Obama's use of executive authority regarding gun rights:
"President Obama is once again trying to legislate from the executive branch. The 23 executive actions that he announced Wednesday to restrict gun ownership in American is just another way that he wants to 'fundamentally transform America'. He wanted the government to control our healthcare and now he wants to control what we can purchase in the way of firearms. This President is consumed with the desire for power and control over our lives."
Armistead continued, "Alabamians believe as our founding fathers did that we should have the right to bear arms to protect and defend ourselves and therefore gave us the Second Amendment. I believe that the Second Amendment is the insurance policy the founders set up for future generations to prevent an overreaching government. I am thankful for the rights provided us in the US Constitution.... the rights that this President seems all too willing to ignore."
"I know that our Republican Delegation from Alabama will stand strong against President Obama insatiable desire for control of every aspect of our lives and especially on the issue to bear arms."
