Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is proposing legislation to nullify President Obama’s executive actions on gun policy, claiming that the president’s actions are a breach of constitutional separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches.
During a Wednesday appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity,” the Republican senator outlined his plan to challenge Obama’s anti-gun violence package.
“Our founding fathers were very concerned about us having separation of powers. They didn’t want to let the president become a king.” Paul said. “In this bill, we will nullify anything the president does that smacks of legislation.”
Paul continued: “I’m afraid that President Obama may have this king complex sort of developing … I think there’s a history of this arrogance.”
