Sen. Rand Paul Slams Jim Gray on Gun Control

“Make no mistake, what Jim Gray and President Obama want to do together is take guns away from law-abiding Kentuckians.”

Written by Elias Atienza for the Libertarian Republic:

In Kentucky, Paul is facing reelection. His opponent, Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, blasted him for allowing “suspected terrorists” to purchase weapons.

“How many headlines like this do we need to see before Congress does something?” asked Gray during a rally outside of Paul’s Lexington field office. “Senator Paul voted to let potential terrorists buy guns. He chose to protect the rights of radical Islam over the safety of innocent Americans. What was Rand Paul thinking? Where is his common sense? Where’s the backbone?”

Paul shot back, saying that he voted for a measure which would “let federal law-enforcement officials delay gun sales to suspected terrorists for up to 72 hours.” The measure would also block the sale permanently if officials presented enough evidence to justify it to a judge.

“In December, I voted to make sure no terrorist can buy guns in the U.S.,” Paul said in a statement. “The legislation I supported, however, prevented the Obama administration from drawing up a secret list of hundreds of thousands or even millions of Americans who, through no judicial process, are stripped of their rights. Make no mistake, what Jim Gray and President Obama want to do together is take guns away from law-abiding Kentuckians.”
