Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says he supports President Obama’s executive actions on gun control.
In a statement, Senator Sanders hit out at Republicans for their loyalty to gun lobbyists, and affirmed his support for President Obama’s executive actions.
“It’s become clear that no mass shooting, no matter how big or bloody, will inspire Republicans to put children and innocent Americans over the interests of the NRA,” Sanders said.
“They are simply more loyal to gun lobbyists than our children. That’s why I support President Obama’s executive actions to make our communities safer. A vast majority of the American people, including responsible gun owners who are sickened by the deaths of so many innocent people, agree with the common sense reforms announced today.”
“As president, I will continue these executive orders because it’s past time to end the moral outrage of Aurora, and Newtown and Charleston,” he concluded.
