Bourne Condemns Presidential Actions to Restrict Second Amendment

Litchfield… Following Tuesday’s announcement from President Barack Obama about various actions he is taking to limit access to firearms and ammunition, State Rep. Avery Bourne (R-Raymond) released the following statement:

“I, like all Americans, am heartbroken at the amount of senseless gun violence in America. However, the unilateral actions taken today by the President appear to be unconstitutional and do not begin a productive or collaborative discussion," said Bourne.  “These actions do not address the root causes of gun violence such as illegally obtained firearms. Overall, I am disappointed by this overreach and will continue to fight to protect our Constitutional rights here in Illinois.”
