Washington, D.C. – Following President Joe Biden’s remarks this afternoon on gun safety, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement:
“My staff and I are reviewing the executive actions announced by President Biden today. Lasting progress though is made through the legislative process. I appreciate President Biden’s expressed willingness to work with both Republicans and Democrats to achieve this goal. If done in a manner that respects the rights of law-abiding citizens, I believe there is an opportunity to strengthen our background check system so that we are better able to keep guns away from those who have no legal right to them.”
