Washington, D.C.Representative Rick Crawford (AR-1) released the statement below earlier today following the President’s announcement of his most recent executive order regarding gun violence.

We all value the safety of our communities and children above all else, but by focusing his unilateral efforts on personal collectors and hobbyists, the President’s proposal incorrectly targets compliant and lawful sellers instead of focusing on the consistent causes of recent atrocities. Lacking widespread support for his initiatives that restrict American’s 2nd amendment rights, the President has attempted to circumvent Congress, again. As we continue to review the details of this most recent executive order, I will be joining my colleagues in order to preserve the full rights of Arkansas’ gun owners and sellers, despite misguided attempts to inhibit them.”
