Sen. Rand Paul Plans Bill To "Nullify" Obama's Gun Control Measures

Yesterday Sen. Rand Paul announced a bill that he claims will "nullify" President Obama's executive orders on gun control.
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.
Paul says: "Our founding fathers were very concerned about us having separation of powers. They didn't want to let the president become a king."
