US senator to nullify President Obama’s gun control proposal
"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."Obama’s proposals were met with widespread objections from Republicans and gun rights groups including the National Rifle Association (NRA).
"Attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation," said NRA regarding the gun proposal, and added, "Only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy."In the next couple of weeks, NRA is planning to put its lobbying pressure on lawmakers at Capitol Hill aimed at stopping the proposal from being approved. The Senate hearing on the gun control proposal is set to start in two weeks. CAH/HMV/IS
