Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) opposes the use of executive orders to address guns because the president is not a "king," he told the Christian Broadcasting Network Monday.
"I'm against having a king," Paul said. "I think having a monarch is what we fought the American Revolution over and someone who wants to bypass the Constitution, bypass Congress -- that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch."
Paul promised "one heck of a debate" if President Obama decides to issue any executive orders on guns.
"And I promise you, there'll be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop him from usurping the Constitution, running roughshod over Congress," he vowed. "And you will see one heck of a debate if he decides to try to do this."
