Roe reacts to gun control speech

Published On: Jan 16 2013 04:49:44 PM CST

On Wednesday Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) released the following statement in response to the administration’s gun control proposal:  

“First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers go out to those around the country that have been victims of the senseless acts of violence the president mentioned in his speech today. I will give the administration’s proposal great thought and careful consideration, but our Second Amendment right is one of our most cherished freedoms and I will not support measures that infringe on our Constitutional right to bear arms.”
