LITTLE ROCK – Governor
Asa Hutchinson today
released the following
statement in response to
President Obama’s executive
order on gun control:
“On the issue of violent
attacks from armed gunmen,
my background has
allowed me the opportunity
to examine closely
this issue from every side
and I disagree with the
President’s approach. Today,
the President reinforced
what we’ve come
to expect: he would rather
circumvent the American
people, Congress and the
Constitution in an effort
to accomplish his agenda.
The actions outlined in his
executive order are largely
the same new restrictions
that Congress has already
rejected.
“I, too, agree that the
safety and security of
Americans should come
first. That’s why I would
encourage the President
to use his last year in office
in developing a more effective
strategy and action
plan against ISIS and other
terror threats targeting the
United States. He has an
opportunity to lead and
unify but instead the President
has opted to attack
the Second Amendment
and law abiding citizens
through a divisive plan that
will not save any lives.”
