CHEROKEE, Iowa – Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called President Barack Obama’s administration “the most anti-gun administration in the history of our country.”

Cruz, who is currently on a six-day bus tour through Iowa, spoke to reporters about Obama’s announcement of new gun control executive actions.

“This has been the most anti-gun administration in the history of our country” Cruz said. “This has been an administration that has targeted law abiding citizens in particular, rather than targeting criminals, rather than targeting terrorists.”

“After seven years we’ve seen a pattern of repeated abuse of executive power from this president, repeated refusal to follow federal law or follow the constitution” Cruz said.

Cruz reiterated one of his central campaign promises which is to, “rescind every single illegal and unconstitutional executive action taken by President Obama.”
“The one silver lining is the fact that President Obama keeps abusing executive power. Everything done with executive power can be undone with executive power.”
