Alexander Statement on President Obama’s Gun Control Proposals

Posted on January 5, 2016

MARYVILLE, TENN., Jan. 5 – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on President Obama’s gun control proposals:

“First, the president should have sent these proposals to Congress instead of trying to make yet another end run around it. Second, I will look closely at each proposal to determine whether it infringes upon or strengthens Second Amendment constitutional rights. On mental health, our health committee already is moving ahead in a bipartisan way and should be able soon to recommend additional legislation to the full Senate.”
