Senator Rand Paul to Breitbart News’ Ben Shapiro: “I think they’re gonna have trouble and I think they know — they count votes, they know just as well as anybody — they’ll have trouble passing that in the House and even in the Senate. There are a few who’ve been rated well by the NRA and have at least said they’re against — or for protecting the Second Amendment, but we’ll see what happens. They could potentially pass something in the Senate, but hopefully in the House. I just don’t see that getting through. So that’s why we’re still kind of concerned about the Executive Orders and we’ve introduced legislation to try to prevent them from legislating. There is some precedent for this. [President] Clinton was overturned at least once by the courts for writing an Executive Order that the courts said amounted to legislation.”
