Washington, January 5, 2016 | Jon Corley (202-225-3706) | comments

U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s announced executive actions on gun control:

President Obama is wrong to think that we have crime and terrorism because there are not enough gun laws.

Gun control only affects law-abiding citizens, not criminals and terrorists who violate laws in carrying out their acts.

The President should focus on dealing with the real causes of crime at home and terrorism around the world rather than look for excuses to push his political agenda."
