Cassidy Statement on Obama’s Second Amendment Overreach

WASHINGTON— U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. released the following statement on President Obama’s executive action on guns:

"If the President is interested in stopping mass shootings, we should look at the root causes, such as home grown terrorism in San Bernardino and recognized but untreated mental illness in Lafayette and Newtown. To the degree that this is addressed, Americans will be safer. To the degree that law abiding citizens are hassled when exercising a constitutional right, this is big government at its worst."
