Over the weekend, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) did exactly what gun owners have been waiting for someone in a position of power to do–he vowed to stand between the Second Amendment and Obama’s relentless gun grabbing efforts.
Speaking to Kentucky voters, McConnell said:
President Obama and his team are doing everything in their power to restrict your constitutional right to keep and bear and arms. Their efforts to restrict your rights, invading your personal privacy and overstepping their bounds with executive orders, are just plain wrong…I will do everything in my power as Senate Republican leader, fighting tooth and nail, to protect your Second Amendment rights.
McConnell said Obama’s gun grab must be stopped so “law-abiding citizens” can “properly and accurately” defend themselves, their families, and their country.
Last week, Kentucky’s junior Senator Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) (R) took a similar position, when he vowed that he will introduce legislation nullifying Obama’s executive orders on guns.
