Rand Paul is prepared to stop President Obama’s gun control plans. He says his gun control plans, especially the ones Obama thinks he can do via executive order, must be stopped. Rand Paul has come up with legislation - Separation of Powers Restoration and Second Amendment Protection Act - which would nullify Obama’s executive orders on gun control and preserve the 2nd Amendment.
Paul says his legislation will declare that “Any executive order by President Obama infringing on the Second Amendment rights of all Americans would be declared null and void” and “would prohibit federal funds to implement President Obama’s executive orders impacting the 2nd Amendment.”
Talking Points Memo has a more detailed outline of Sen. Rand Paul’s legislation.
President Obama has absolutely no authority under the Constitution to use his executive powers to pen an executive order which would infringe upon citizens 2nd Amendment rights.
