Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Last week, Attorney General Luther Strange testified before the United States Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies.

The Subcommittee, chaired by U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), heard testimony on a wide variety of firearm-related issues, including President Obama's recent Executive Order.

During his testimony, Attorney General Strange rebuked President Obama's recent attempt to “intimidate and frighten law-abiding citizens” though unilateral executive actions that constitute an “unwarranted assault on the Second Amendment.”  As Attorney General Strange succinctly stated, “limiting the ability of responsible citizens to buy a gun will not keep criminals from getting one.”

Attorney General Strange correctly highlighted what law-abiding gun owners have lamented for years: President Obama seems more concerned with making it harder for law-abiding individuals to obtain firearms than the criminals he refuses to prosecute.  Attorney General Strange, the chief law-enforcement officer in Alabama, related that many of the law-enforcement officers he spoke to reject further interference with your Second Amendment rights.

He states, “the law enforcement officers in my state, and I dare say around the country, believe these actions will not have a meaningful impact.”  Instead of bypassing Congress and taking unilateral executive action, Attorney General Strange provided his own three-part solution;

“Number one: Enforce the laws already on the books.  Number two: Prosecute criminals for gun-related crimes.  Number three: Stop releasing violent criminals from jail before their sentences are completed.”

Please contact Attorney General Luther Strange's office and thank him for supporting law-abiding Alabamians' Right to Keep and Bear Arms. You can reach Attorney General Strange at 334-242-7300 or by clicking here.

I find it interesting that all of your high ranking public officials are surrounded by body guards that are heavily armed, just goes to show that criminals will find a way to have guns, but they want to take them away from us.

My family lives out in the country where we enjoy the peace and quiet. If you call the sheriffs department or the fire department you are in for a 15-20 minute wait at a minimum depending on how busy they are. Oh did I mention that criminals live in the country as well? I will not give up my rights to defend my family!

You know I am really tired of having to curb my First Amendment rights because of criminal repercussion by criminals in government.
