Appearing on Fox News last night in the aftermath of President Obama’s gun control speech, Senator Rand Paul vowed to introduce legislation next week that would torpedo Obama’s attempt to eviscerate the second amendment via a raft of executive orders.
Promising to follow the example of the founders in blocking the President from having the ability to legislate, the Kentucky Senator said he would introduce a bill next week that would “nullify anything the president does that smacks of legislation. And there are several of the executive orders that appear as if he’s writing new law. That cannot happen,” added Paul, noting that the courts struck down an attempt by Bill Clinton to do the same thing.
Host Sean Hannity then listed a series of executive actions Obama had taken during his term without congressional approval, notably the authorization of military action against Libya.
Senator Paul agreed that Obama was acting unconstitutionally and with “arrogance” in pursuing his political agenda outside of Congress.
“He couldn’t get cap and trade through Congress and now he’s trying to do it through regulatory fiat, so there’s a lot of precedent for this, said Paul, warning that Obama was “garnering so much power and arrogance that he thinks he can do whatever he wants.”
