Senator Introduces Measure Targeting Executive Overreach On Guns

posted on June 23, 2017

A U.S. senator on Wednesday proposed legislation that would shield the Second Amendment rights of Americans from executive overreach, according to a report at Guns.com.

U.S. Sen. Luther Strange, R-Ala., introduced the “Protecting the Second Amendment Act,” targeting unnecessary intrusions of freedom like those made by executive actions during the Obama administration.

“The Obama administration demonstrated time and again a disturbing willingness to bypass the separation of powers and disregard Congress as a Constitutional watchdog,” Strange said. “Had the restrictions faced by lawful gun dealers in border states been applied to Alabama, many sportsmen, myself included, would have a difficult time practicing our hobby, and exercising our Constitutional rights. With this bill, I am proud to stand up against existing and future threats to the rights of lawful gun owners, and restore respect for the rule of law.”
