Andrew Arulanandam, Director of Public Affairs for the National Rifle Association, released the statement below following today's press release in which Sen. Dianne Feinstein announced sweeping new gun control legislation:

"Senator Feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. It's disappointing but not surprising that she is once again focused on curtailing the Constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health system. The American people know gun bans do not work and we are confident Congress will reject Senator Feinstein's wrong-headed approach."
