Malcolm Testifies on Executive Actions on Gun Control
On January 20, Professor Joyce Lee Malcolm testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies. The purpose of the hearing was to review the Department of Justice’s role in implementing new executive actions related to gun control.
“If the President has a case to make for his ideas on preventing gun violence he needs to work with the Congress to pass the necessary legislation,” Malcolm said. “Taking unilateral action that is patently unconstitutional is, in the long run, just as dangerous to the welfare of Americans as gun violence itself.”
