Sources: Rand Paul to push legislation nullifying Obama’s executive actions on guns

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul plans to introduce legislation in Congress soon nullifying the executive orders on guns announced by President Barack Obama on Wednesday, a source familiar with the plans confirmed to The Daily Caller.

The Republican legislator plans to reveal his plans for legislation during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News on Wednesday night, the source said.

Obama on Wednesday announced during a White House ceremony that he plans to initiate 23 executive actions meant to curb gun violence in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre last year.

The news was first reported during the Fox News show “The Five” on Wednesday by anchor Eric Bolling.

“I’m told Sen. Rand Paul will introduce language within hours, within hours, to call for the nullification and prohibition of funding for the president’s executive actions announced today and possibly even using the federal courts to nullify and defund some of the things that he plans on doing,” Bolling said.

The Capitol Hill source told TheDC that Paul’s legislation is expected to do three things: nullify Obama’s executive orders, defund them and ask the Senate to file a court challenge to them. (RELATED: Rep. Stockman promises to ‘lead the fight’ against executive orders)

UPDATE: Appearing on Hannity, Paul said he’ll introduce the bill early next week. “In this bill, we will 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.”

“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.

 Good. 

Its not the presidents job, he is abusing his power.  The president should not write laws, ever.  He's not the king or dictator.

Obama wanting to violate HIPPA is distrubing, and he should be stopped.

Rand probably should be more concerned about his son being charged with assault on a female by aggressive physical force, underage drinking, disorderly conduct, and being intoxicated and disruptive. Young William made quite an impression with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police and the US Airways flight crew a couple of weeks ago, and they weren't all that impressed about who his daddy was.

I am sure he can be concerned about his son while doing his job.  One has nothing to do with the other.

Sounds like the same old attitude of the Republican side of Congress that's been displayed the past few years. If it's not what we want, it's no good and must not pass.

 I am sure in his role as a father that Rand Paul will deal with the issues with his son's behavior, but this has nothing to do with how Rand Paul conducts himself as a Senator.

I just want to take this moment to say that Rand Paul is an evil fucktard with a very bad haircut.

If you don't have anything good to say than don't say anything at all! 

You learn this as a child.

I think he would be a great addition to "Justified" on FX.
