JACKSON, MS (WLOX) -

President Obama will announce several proposals Wednesday on what the federal government can do to curb gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre. But the anticipation about the president's plan already has many gun advocates worried, including Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.

Wednesday morning, the governor sent a letter to Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves and House Speaker Phillip Gunn asking them to "immediately pass legislation that would make any unconstitutional order by the President illegal to enforce in Mississippi by state or local law enforcement."

Bryant said several states have introduced similar measures to counter what he called, "this overreaching and anti-constitutional violation of our rights as American citizens."
