DENVER — Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado, released the following statement regarding Obama’s executive action to restrict Second Amendment rights: 

“Americans are sick and tired of President Obama forcing through divisive and unconstitutional executive actions that will not make our nation any safer.  Time and time again, citizens across Colorado and the nation have voted in favor of Second Amendment rights. Voters support keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals and terrorists, but today’s executive orders will do nothing to prevent these violent individuals from obtaining a gun.  Instead, President Obama’s actions will make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect their families.”
