WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) today issued the following statement regarding the gun control initiatives outlined by President Obama on Wednesday:

“I have consistently opposed proposals which threaten the rights of law abiding citizens to own guns, and I will continue to do so as we enter this debate.  The President’s executive actions, as well as his legislative proposals, are cause for serious concern.  It is my expectation that Congress will critically assess these ideas to determine what might actually work to improve public safety without infringing on the Second Amendment rights granted to citizens by our Constitution.”
