Rand Paul on Gun Control Executive Order: Obama is Not ‘King’

  

“I’m against having a king,” Paul said. “I think having a monarch is what we fought the American Revolution over and someone who wants to bypass the Constitution, bypass Congress — that’s someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch.”

“I’ve been opposed to executive orders, even with Republican presidents. But one that wants to infringe on the Second Amendment, we will fight tooth and nail,” he continued.

“And I promise you, there’ll be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop him from usurping the Constitution, running roughshod over Congress,” he vowed. “And you will see one heck of a debate if he decides to try to do this.”

    • Dabenn

      they coud do it on a number of things and not wait for 2nd amendment

  • Hilly

    Congress is a bunch of wimps. Not a single back bone among the GOP. When you guys actually get off your wimpy butts and do something worth while, I’ll think about listening to what you say.

  • AA

    I agree with Rand Paul’s opinion.

    I must ask why is sitting in front of a foreign flag (even if he is presently in the foreign nation), however.

    • Chris Smith

      “Congressman Paul spoke to us in our Jerusalem bureau.” I think that should answer your question. Jerusalem – Israel – Israel flag — get it?

      • RescueKyron

        So what will Israel do to support us? Would be great if they would speak out against Feinstein, Bloomberg, the Constitution Ripper USSCJustice Ginsburg, Schumer, et al. No, they won’t EVER speak against their own, they have been supporting them likely with funds we give to Israel.

        Senator Paul. His father was the congressman.

  • Worrywart

    The “best defense”, is a “good offense”. The GOP has no offense. Bush was in office for 8 years, I’m wishing we could have done a few things to improve healthcare, we did nothing and got handed ObamaCare. We have high rates of crime, domestic violence, child molesters, drunk drivers. Somehow the GOP needs to get creative, come up with ideas to regain importance.

  • harleydavidson

    Thank you Senator Paul. I hope more Americans will support your position.

    • har82

      I think there are more that will – support – his position , than not. Just not sure how may in Congress ,, will stand with him lol.
      Frankly , I think a lot of them are – invested – in bammies power grab for dictator . But he will have millions of people ,, with him regardless.

  • Kenny_Ray

    Piss on Obama. He needs to be removed from office by any means necessary. His Niggernomics are destroying this nation. Ron Paul is right….

    • caskinner

      Do you mean Rand Paul is right?

    Thank you Rand Paul for calling a spade a spade. Obama is not the king of our great nation.

  • Don

    The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government…. Thomas Jefferson.

    • Harold

      Just like the one siting in the W.H. is trying NOW. Tyranny is what we have now.

  • Charlie

    Three branches of our government Obama’s branch is not the legistrative. The constitution’s second amendment is in place to stop tyranny just as this president is applying to “We the people” right now. This president and his clown followers need to remember the oath they took to up hold the constitution. This does include the second amendment. Stop this nanny state USA distruction that these ignorant self serving dolts are trying to put in to place in our country.

  • JoJo58

    Yes he is Rand, and all of the senators and congressmen who refused to, and continue to not stand up to him will be remembered as the reason why the US failed. Quit trying to be popular, try doing what is right. The media will NEVER like conservatives, get over it and be the grown ups.

    News Flash…I serve no King, Queen, Blue Helmets or Brown Shirts.

      • nvrat

        AMEN Brother.

  • nvrat

    It`s time to Impeach all politicians, including the President and Vice President that do not stand by their Oath Of Office.

  • brabbie2002

    His nibs is putting himself in as first ever muslim dictator. Kiss all the Christians and Jews goodbye as he sees their demise through his muslim brotherhood buddies. There was a reason he told the world this is no longer a Christian nation. He had this planned all along.

  • 09dogg38

    Executive orders are meant to be used to enforce existing laws,not create your own decrees,like the king of the United States.This dude needs to have “deposed dictator”,in front of his name.

    • WellNowDear

      Executive orders were only intended to be used by presidents for very important functions when Congress was not in session. They were never intended to bypass Congress. This is a huge abuse of power on “o”‘s part.

  • Wilf-Talker1

    The Great “O”, nothing more than a Tin Plated God with Delusions of Grandure!

  • caskinner

    Congress better be screaming about this Executive order to infringe on the people’s right to bear arms…. Obama is NOT King even though he is acting like it. This is just the beginning.

  • EastCoastFa1

    Until Congress decides to defend its own authority, these kinds of statements are nothing more than empty rhetoric. And as long as the Senate is controlled by Democrats, Congress will never be worth spit.

  • Joanne

    The NRA video hits it right on the head, Obama just uses kids in his photo op, the truth is why shouldn’t every kid be protected by police in schools? Remember this has distracted from the economy, jobs and the deficits, that’s what the lefty loons do.

  • Dabenn

    hey rand what about all the other things bho has done to the constitution?

  • stonemike

    Secession and formation of a Constitutional Republic where communism, socialism, or any other ideology that seeks to destroy American freedom is not allowed to be forced on our children by left wing teachers! War is coming if loons like obammi are allowed to keep ruling by dictate! He should be hung for treason, and half of Congress with him!

  • WellNowDear

    Rand is a true Patriot and I believe he will do exactly as he says. Rand had better look sharp. The Bamabums may be out after him.

  • ppanthers

    tHERE IS NO NEED FOR ANY DEBATE. HE HAS ONCE AGAIN, USURPED POWER FROM THE PEOPLE BY NOT PUTTING THIS TO THEIR VOTE. HE IS AN ILLEGAL UNCONSTITUTIONAL PRESIDENT AND NEEDS TO HAVE HIS RECORDS UNSEALED RIGHT NOW! THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS FRAUD AND TYRANNY GOING ON ONE MINUTE LONGER!

  • Harold

    Rand Paul couldn’t be anymore right, We fought a war against a king, and to be free. Anyone who tries these tactics needs to be removed from any office he or she holds, immediatly. Some of these arrogant jerks both male and female should be recalled NOW. If they try to bypass the Constitution they are asking for a civil war. (or is that what Obabler is trying for?) So he can turn the contry to communism or Muslime rule.

  • DaveNTejas

    Well he did it several times already, what are you going to do about it?? I support Rand, and I want him to get after Big O.
