Governor Scott Walker Statement on Presidential Overreach

I have asked the Attorney General to review this proposed rule language as soon as it is made available

Madison – Governor Scott Walker today released the following statement regarding President Obama’s planned executive action related to gun control:

President Obama is again disregarding the Constitutional principles of separation of powers and exceeding his authority as Chief Executive. The Obama Administration issued guidance creating uncertainty and fear of prosecution for law-abiding citizens who wish to exercise their right to sell firearms lawfully. Forthcoming federal rules could also deprive millions of Americans of their Second Amendment rights without any indication of imminent danger.

I have asked the Attorney General to review this proposed rule language as soon as it is made available and, if issued as reported, to take any and all legal measures available to challenge this illegal act.

    Walker chooses NRA money over the brutal assault of 20 six-year olds. Pathetic.

  2. Vincent Hanna says:

    What law abiding citizen will not be able to get a gun because of this action? Whose guns will be taken away? 81% of Wisconsin residents support background checks for private gun sales and gun shows. So who is Walker really representing by opposing this? Not the residents of the state he governs.

  3. SteveM says:

    “uncertainty and fear “? Is that anything like divide and conquer? Shock and awe?

  4. Mark E. Bye says:

    Yet another embarrassing example demonstrating the obvious. This guy knows nothing about the Presidency, let alone leadership.

  5. Virginia Carlson says:

    When will this loser leave us alone? I am so sick of him and his knee-jerk reactions. Does he have a thinking bone in his body?

  6. Barb-West Bend says:

    Gov. Walker’s run for the Presidency was definitely overreach. Wisconsin paid dearly while he pursued his fantasy. The debates exposed him as a one trick pony…destroy Unions. Mr. Unintimidated fled the scene as soon as he was exposed by the other candidates as a light weight. Now Wisconsin is stuck with a tinfoil god, who is ruling by revenge.

  7. daniel golden says:

    As the number of deaths by firearm approach deaths due to motor vehicles, this clueless dork panders to the NRA. It should be obvious to all but the most uninformed Wisconsin voter by now that in this state, the worst of us are now governing the rest of us.

  8. Mike Carey says:

    Does Walker even recognize what a hypocrite he is? ..To Paraphrase his quote.”Governor walker is again disregarding the Constitutional principles of separation of powers and exceeding his authority as Chief Executive.” He had no problem insinuating himself in Racine’s local school board election.
    secondly,, isn’t he part of the political party of the chckenhawk variety who’s for war at any time because of the huge threat of “terrorists”? (Just the brown, or black or foreign or not the same religion as me kind though. White conservative terrorists hes fine with) Yet he says …”Forthcoming federal rules could also deprive millions of Americans of their Second Amendment rights without any indication of imminent danger.”. I thought they had to be able to get guns because of this supposed “Imminent danger”/

  9. Alene says:

    There was no Presidential overreach with the Executive Order on controlling gun sales. These laws are already on the books but are not being enforced. Simply enforcing the laws would cut down on people getting weapons they are not legally allowed to have. Those who keep saying Obama’s going to take away my guns are insane. Where do they get that out of what Obama has ordered? Nowhere! It’s all inflammatory rhetoric and hearsay that they are simply repeating.
