But it’s an essential component of the Bill of Rights, and ties in with the second amendment. As we always tell people wanting to take away guns from us law abiding citizens – the major reason we have the second amendment is to be able to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government.

·        Rand Paul: “The gun grabbers in Washington have launched an all-out assault on our right to keep and bear arms - and they're hell-bent on destroying the Second Amendment. And to add insult to injury, Barack Obama is preparing to use Executive Orders to RAM through whatever the gun grabbers can't get through Congress. Well, America doesn't have - nor need - a King. And as I told Sean Hannity last night, I'm prepared to do everything in my power to stand up to "King Obama" and stop his all-out assault on the Second Amendment.
