RT: Sen. Rand Paul has made plans to nullify President Obama’s 23 executive actions on gun control policy, claiming the president is exercising too much power and demonstrating a ‘king complex’.The Kentucky Senator made a Wednesday night appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity”, during which he outlined the legislation he hopes to pass in order to prevent the president from using his executive powers.
“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’s bill, the Separation of Powers Restoration and Second Amendment Protection Act of 2013, points to Article I of the Constitution, which states, “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” The bill makes mention of the president’s 23 executive actions, which “could be construed to describe an attempt by the executive to make laws in violation of the Article 1, Sec. 8 of the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment.”
