GOP Candidates Promise To Overturn Obama Gun Control

posted on January 5, 2016

As President Barack Obama prepares to announce new gun control executive orders, several Republican candidates are attacking his actions—and pledging to reverse them if they take power. “We’re not changing the Second Amendment,” Donald Trump said. “I will veto that. I will unsign that so fast.” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie accused Obama of acting like a “petulant child” and also said that he would strike the order upon assuming the presidency. 

Sen. Marco Rubio also weighed in on the planned gun control measure, describing it as “illegal and unconstitutional.” “Law-abiding gun owners are not the problem in this country,” Rubio continued. “The problem are criminals, and criminals don’t care what laws you pass. You can pass all the gun laws in the world that you want. It will not stop the criminals.”
