MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – U.S. Congressman Dan Benishek called in to The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to share his perspectives on the plan offered up by President Barack Obama recently to address guns and gun violence in America.

Congressman Benishek, a Republican, chided the Democrat President’s plan,  saying law-abiding gun owners in Northern Michigan cannot allow their Constitutional rights to be eroded to achieve a false sense of security.

Benishek said he believes we need to have a national  conversation about violence and our society’s values.  He also feels that, as a doctor, the state of mental health care in this country needs closer scrutiny and review.

He added he does not think the President’s plan to take guns out of the hands of responsible people is the answer.  He feels that people determined to commit a crime using a gun will not be deterred by more laws.
