“As Chairman of the House Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee, you have lead the fight against the Obama Administration's unconstitutional attacks on our Second Amendment freedoms. You were instrumental in thwarting their attempt to ban commonly used ammunition for the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15. In addition, you ensured that the 2016 Omnibus Appropriation bill was a victory for gun owners in the face of stiff opposition from gun control advocates like Nancy Pelosi." -Chris W. Cox, NRA-PVF Chairman
Earlier this month, President Obama announced that he will once again attempt to bypass Congress and implement a number of gun controls and restrictions.
I have taken a stand against the President’s power grab, and I will continue to use my position as Chairman of the Commerce, Justice and Science (CJS) Appropriations Subcommittee to defund and stop the President’s proposed executive actions.
The Blaze: One Congressman Has a Plan to Ensure Obama’s Executive Actions on Guns Carry No Weight Without Approval of Congress
Congressman John Culberson (R-Texas) has a plan to ensure that President Barack Obama’s latest executive actions on guns don’t interfere with the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans.
Culberson, who chairs the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and Science appropriations, recently sent a letter to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Deputy Director Thomas Brandon, informing him that without the approval of his committee and Congress, Obama will not be able to unilaterally implement executive action that is inconsistent with existing law.
“As Chairman of the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Subcommittee, I have the authority and the duty to ensure that our hard-earned tax dollars are spent to enforce the law as written by Congress,” Culberson began in the letter.
A powerful House Republican is threatening to block President Obama’s executive order on guns by defunding the Department of Justice (DOJ).
In a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas), chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees the Justice Department, warned against enforcing the new gun restrictions.
"The next twelve months will be an especially dangerous time for Americans who treasure our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms,” Culberson said.
