A message from Senator Rand Paul: When he spent the time reading the entire gun ban law proposed by Feinstein in his words, “My jaw hit the floor.”
Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.
This was received in an Email today from Senator Paul. We the People are fortunate to have people like him in office who are willing to stand on principle and fight the good fight.
This site has stated repeatedly, this legislation will not pass the House and very likely the Senate as the senator discusses in the video below.
Sen. Rand Paul Will Introduce Legislation to ‘Nullify’ Obama’s Executive Orders on Guns: From the Blaze.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
In the video below, Senator Rand Paul outlines how he will introduce legislation to take apart Obama’s Executive Orders should Feinstein’s legislation pass.

Appearing on Fox News last night in the aftermath of President Obama’s gun control speech, Senator Rand Paul vowed to introduce legislation next week that would torpedo Obama’s attempt to eviscerate the second amendment via a raft of executive orders.
Promising to follow the example of the founders in blocking the President from having the ability to legislate, the Kentucky Senator said he would introduce a bill next week that would “nullify anything the president does that smacks of legislation. And there are several of the executive orders that appear as if he’s writing new law. That cannot happen,” added Paul, noting that the courts struck down an attempt by Bill Clinton to do the same thing.
Host Sean Hannity then listed a series of executive actions Obama had taken during his term without congressional approval, notably the authorization of military action against Libya.
Senator Paul agreed that Obama was acting unconstitutionally and with “arrogance” in pursuing his political agenda outside of Congress.
“He couldn’t get cap and trade through Congress and now he’s trying to do it through regulatory fiat, so there’s a lot of precedent for this, said Paul, warning that Obama was “garnering so much power and arrogance that he thinks he can do whatever he wants.”
Turning to the issue of legislation that would ban assault weapons, Paul voiced his view that such a bill would not be successful due to a small number of Democrats in pro-gun states who would be forced to vote against such proposals out of fear of alienating their constituents.
“I think there’s a good chance we can stop his legislative action, I’m concerned that he will try to do through regulatory fiat what he can’t pass through legislation,” remarked the Senator.
Responding to Rep. Hank Johnson’s suggestion that the NRA are only opposing Obama because he is black, Paul pointed to the recent case, McDonald v. Chicago, in which an African-American attempted to assert his second amendment rights in the face of opposition from the city of Chicago, leading the Supreme Court to affirm that the right to “keep and bear arms” did apply to individuals and that cities could not overturn this right. Paul also pointed out that many of the early gun control laws were used to disarm black people.
Paul warned that Obama was behaving like a king in acting through executive fiat with total disregard for Congress.
“I’m afraid that President Obama may have this king complex sort of developing, and we’re going to make sure that doesn’t happen,” Paul said, echoing comments he made earlier in the week when he slammed Obama for “usurping the Constitution,” and “running roughshod over Congress.”
As this Infowars analysis of Obama’s executive orders details, the administration plans to mobilize the medical bureaucracy in an attempt to link gun ownership with mental illness, a back door effort to limit Americans’ right to keep and bear arms by creating a ‘no gun buy list’ similar to the notoriously inaccurate and onerous ‘no fly list’.
Dear fellow Patriot,
My jaw hit the floor.
After reading Senator Dianne Feinstein’s new so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban, I can only describe this radical scheme as the effective end of the Second Amendment in America.
The gun-grabbers are going for broke, doing everything they can to “cash in” on the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.
They’re targeting EVERYTHING, rifles, shotguns, and even hand guns, and every gun owner and gun purchase is to be cataloged and tracked by the federal government.
That’s why it’s absolutely critical you act IMMEDIATELY.
As you’ll see, I’ve enclosed a special Emergency Second Amendment directive, please write all your federal representatives at one time by clicking here. Insist that your Representative and Senators vote against this radical scheme. Complete article below.
President Obama’s Administration is announcing it will “push forward quickly” on gun control — and Vice President Joe Biden is promising it will be a “done deal” in a matter of weeks!
If Feinsteins’s Gun Ban were to pass, it would ban the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of 120 specifically named rifles, shotguns and handguns!
*** Ban the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of ALL firearms with a detachable magazine and at least one “military characteristic,” which could mean just about “anything that makes a gun look scary.”
*** Ban the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of magazines holding more than 10 rounds;
*** Force owners of ALL “grandfathered” weapons to undergo an intrusive background check and fingerprinting , treating law-abiding citizens like criminals.
*** Force owners of ALL “grandfathered” weapons to federally registered their guns after obtaining a permission slip from the local law enforcement, showing their guns are not in violation of state or local law.
That’s right. If you own a $10 magazine that’s more than 10 rounds, you’ll have to register it with the BATFE in their National Firearms Registry.
The ban on “transfers” means you and I can forget about ever handing down one of these guns to our kids and grandchildren.
Worse, it could mean widows become instant felons if their husbands owned one of these banned magazines or firearms!
Make no mistake, the gun-grabbers’ true motive and agenda behind gun registration has always been the same, outright gun CONFISCATION ad to do that the must first register ever gun and gun owner.
Then Senator Feinstein will be able to achieve her publicly stated goal:
“Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in.”
I can hardly even think about what a DISASTER for our country it would be should President Obama, Senator Feinstein and their anti-gun pals succeed in ramming this monstrosity down our throats.
This is exactly the WRONG move for our country, for our liberties and for our safety.
That’s something you’re not hearing from the anti-gun propagandists in the national media
While the truth is, increasing gun sales in America in recent years has led to lower crime rates.
The same is true all over the world.
Studies show countries with low rates of civilian firearms ownership are the most violent. Countries with the highest rate of civilian gun ownership are the safest.
Just look to nearby Mexico if you want to see an example of the gun-grabbers’ idea of utopia. Effectively ruled by violent drug gangs in many areas, Mexico is a cesspool of rape, violence and murder.
That’s why I’ve agreed to help the National Association for Gun Rights fight back to stop this Gun Ban and help lead the fight AGAINST the gun-grabbers.
They’re tough. They’re principled. And they know how to win.
They know the ONLY way you and I win this fight is if my colleagues here in Congress understand that voting for gun control will mean the END of their political careers . . .
And they’re busy mobilizing pro-gun Americans all over the country to make sure Congress gets that message loud and clear.
