Rand Paul: Hey, let’s nullify Obama’s gun control orders

It turns out that there are quite a few people who aren’t at all happy about President Obama’s most recent stint as Supreme Emperor in which he attempted to subvert the 2nd amendment. But none of them so much as Rand Paul who plans to introduce legislation that would nullify president Obama’s unconstitutional gun control measures.

From The Washington Times:

President Obama yesterday released a list of descriptions of the 23 executive orders he is planning to put into place following an extended national debate regarding gun control. While some of these descriptions are so vague and redundant that they add practically nothing to our understanding of the President’s plans, others are plainer and more alarming.

All the measures are confirmation that an arrogant and authoritarian approach to guns on the part of our leadership is imminent. All demonstrate powerfully the presence of a deadly epidemic in our national consciousness. That epidemic is our population’s ill-founded and seemingly inexorable insistence on trusting authority figures to fix everything, to always know what to do, to make everything better for us.

Fortunately for the American people, Senator Rand Paul is one legislator who does not seem to be suffering from this malady. Consequently, he released a plan of his own yesterday.

In the United States, we do not have a king. But we do have a Constitution. We also have a 2nd Amendment. I will fight tooth and nail to protect it,” he wrote on his facebook page. “There are several of the executive orders that appear as if the President is writing new law. That cannot happen. My bill will nullify anything the president does that smacks of legislation. No president should be allowed to overstep the bounds of the Constitution.”

Why can’t every elected official speak this plainly about the Constitution? Why must they all use poll-tested, politically correct politician jargon?
The plan.
