RNC: Obama’s Executive Actions A ‘Power Grab’ [View all]

PEMA LEVY 2:10 PM EST, WEDNESDAY JANUARY 16, 2013

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus rejected President Obama's executive actions on guns in a statement Wednesday, saying they "amount to an executive power grab."

"He paid lip service to our fundamental constitutional rights, but took actions that disregard the 2nd Amendment and the legislative process," Priebus said.

Here's the full statement on Obama's press conference:

“President Obama’s series of gun control measures amount to an executive power grab that may please his political base but will not solve the problems at hand. He paid lip service to our fundamental constitutional rights, but took actions that disregard the 2nd Amendment and the legislative process. Representative government is meant to give voice to the people; President Obama’s unilateral executive action ignores this principle,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

“Instead, we need to work together to find real solutions – many of which do not come from the federal government – that help protect our children and communities while also being firm in protecting Americans’ constitutional rights.”
