Texoma Congressman Mac Thornberry offered this response to President Obama's gun control plans.
"Gun control legislation does not keep guns out of the hands of criminals. The shooter in Connecticut, a state with some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation, killed his mother and took her lawfully obtained weapons. He illegally carried the guns into a gun free zone.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 93 percent of guns used by criminals are stolen, bought on the black market or obtained in other illegal ways. The tragedy at Sandy Hook was an evil act perpetrated by an unstable individual."
