Washington, D.C. - Oklahoma's new 2nd District Congressman Markwayne Mullin says an Executive Order to curb gun rights would be an abuse of power.
"It doesn't surprise me, and I don't think it surprises anybody that this President is taking this step and, in my opinion, abusing his power," Mullin said.
He said he will do everything in his power as a legislator to oppose the President's efforts, but he says the options are limited for Congress.
He said they could pass a law to counteract an Executive Order by the President.
"But then it has to go through the Senate and even if it does get picked up through the Senate, then basically the President would have to veto it or accept something that overrides his Executive Order," Mullin said.
He said they already know he'd veto it.
He said the most effective way for gun owners to oppose gun control is to make sure their voices are heard.
"We represent the people," he said. "This is where people have to get involved too."
