GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee blasted the White House’s newest executive actions that aim to restrict firearms.

“In America we believe in the Constitution-not confiscations, dictatorships or kings, and Obama’s newest assault on the Second Amendment is a blatant, belligerent abuse of power,” Huckabee charged in a statement on Tuesday.

I will never apologize for my firearms, my ammunition or my concealed carry license. I will never apologize for defending your right to have the same. I will never apologize for protecting myself, my family or my friends. I will never apologize for supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And I will never bow down and surrender to Obama’s unconstitutional, radical, anti-gun agenda. Washington is out-of-control, and it’s time for a president that puts Americans first.

President Obama is issuing unilateral actions expanding background checks, among other gun control moves.
