article imageSenator Rand Paul stands up to 'King Obama'

By Christopher Ramos     Jan 17, 2013 in Politics
The gun control debate is intensifying in Washington after President Obama announced his 23 executive actions, yesterday. The Senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, has announced he would introduce legislation to nullify the President's power.
Senator Rand Paul, has taken in his father's footsteps, former Congressman Ron Paul, announcing last night on Fox news, that he would " Nullify anything the President does, that smacks of legislation." he also added " And there are several of the executive orders that appear as if he's writing new law. That cannot happen." President Obama has taken the route of executive action on guns if Congress refuses to act. The Senator from Kentucky believes that the President is stepping outside of constitutional authority by passing executive fiat. By passing executive fiat the President seems to be bypassing congress, something the Senator is determined to stop. The Senator warns that the president is, Garnering so much power and arrogance that he thinks he can do whatever he wants.
During the 5 minute interview, the senator when asked about certain politicians such as, Rep. Hank Johnson, a democrat, pulling the race card when it comes to gun control. The Rep. accused the National Rifle Association of being against the President's gun control plan, just because the President is black, stating that "That is something they still not cannot get over."
This isn't the first time that race has come into the gun control debate, Michael Moore, a filmmaker, believes that fear and racism drive Americans to purchase guns.
The Senator when asked about legislation that would include an "assault weapons ban" the Senator believes that such a bill would not be popular in Congress, given to the fact that democrats representing gun pro states would vote no, appeasing their constituents.
The Senator plans to introduce the legislation next week; bringing more fire into the heated debate.
