Today President Obama attacked our right to bear arms as granted by the Constitution’s Second Amendment (see here also). Not only did Obama propose legislation that would destroy the Second Amendment, but he also threatened to skirt Congress — and the people of the United States — by enacting “gun control” measures through “executive orders.” Obama thinks he can rule by decree. Not so in the U.S., where the president’s ability to implement “regulations” is greatly limited. But President Obama, the man who would be king, is facing stiff opposition from concerned citizens and from legislators like Kentucky Senator Rand Paul:
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul plans to introduce legislation in Congress soon nullifying the executive orders on guns announced by President Barack Obama on Wednesday, a source familiar with the plans confirmed to The Daily Caller.
The Republican legislator plans to reveal his plans for legislation during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News on Wednesday night, the source said.
Obama on Wednesday announced during a White House ceremony that he plans to initiate 23 executive actions meant to curb gun violence in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre last year. …
… Paul’s legislation is expected to do three things: nullify Obama’s executive orders, defund them and ask the Senate to file a court challenge to them.
“I’m afraid that President Obama may have this king complex sort of developing, and we’re going to make sure that doesn’t happen,” Paul said.
