Rand Paul’s Bill Could Shut Down Obama’s Gun Control Agenda

GOP presidential hopeful Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky just introduced legislation that would deny President Barack Obama the ability to infringe on American 2nd Amendment rights via executive fiat.

The president has made no secret that he plans to use his last year in office to enact an ambitious gun control agenda despite congressional disinterest.

The White House is currently finalizing a series of executive actions to create new gun regulations, including a plan to expand background check requirements.

But Paul’s legislation, the Separation of Powers Restoration and Second Amendment Protection Act, could shut down the president’s one-man gun control efforts. By decreeing any executive action with the potential to hinder 2nd Amendment rights as “advisory only” until a legislative equivalent of the action is passed by Congress, the legislation would ensure that any new gun control laws come from the legislative branch.

“In the United States, we do not have a king, but we do have a Constitution. We also have the Second Amendment, and I will fight tooth and nail to protect it,” Paul said.
