    CARTER of Texas asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. CARTER of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I rise today as a voice of warning for all Americans.

    This administration's recent executive orders designed to further restrict Americans' Second Amendment rights is a dangerous move. Make no mistake, this administration will not be satisfied until all Americans no longer have the right to possess firearms.

    This latest round of executive orders serves only to harass and intimidate law-abiding citizens. Nothing the President has proposed would have stopped a single tragedy. Americans have as much right to the protection of their homes and their families with firearms as the President does while sitting in the Oval Office.

    As a firearm owner myself, from a family of firearm owners, and a defender of the Second Amendment, I want to remind the administration that the right to bear arms was settled in 1791. It is not up for debate.
