Wicker Opposes President’s Proposals for Stricter Gun Control

January 16, 2013

TUPELO, MISS. – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), on Wednesday, issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s proposals regarding gun ownership:

"The President's proposals would violate the Constitution and have been proven not to be effective in preventing gun violence,” said Wicker.  “I will be part of a bipartisan coalition opposing this legislation and looking for real solutions such as school safety guards, mental health care, and addressing the culture of violence in the media.  The Second Amendment rights of Americans must be preserved."
