***Statement by Secretary Hosemann on Federal Gun Measures***

“President Obama circumventing Congress by limiting gun rights through Executive Order only silences the voice of Mississippians who oppose any restrictions on our Constitutional right to keep and possess firearms.

I applaud Governor Bryant, Speaker Gunn, and members of the State Legislature who have pledged to block any attempt of the federal government to limit or restrict our Second Amendment right to bear arms.”

Sec. of State Delbery Hosemann
