Bush Vows to Repeal Gun-Control Orders ‘On Day One’

Jeb Bush on Tuesday joined the chorus of Republican voices slamming the president’s executive orders on gun control, according to The Hill.

“Barack Obama has proved once again why he will go down as one of the most liberal and divisive presidents in the history of our nation,” the former Florida governor declared in an editorial that appeared in The Gazette, a newspaper in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

He continued: “Obama’s declaration that he will impose his gun control agenda by executive order shows an utter disregard for the Second Amendment, as well as the proper constitutional process for making laws in our nation. Liberals like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton seize on every opportunity to advance a gun-grabbing agenda.”

Bush pointed out that “after the ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Obama and Clinton called for sweeping gun-control provisions that would trample on the Second Amendment.”

The candidate pledged to rescind the actions “on day one” of his presidency if he wins this year’s election. “With the next president possibly having the opportunity to nominate as many as four justices to the Supreme Court, the stakes in the election couldn’t be higher for gun owners,” Bush wrote. “Hillary Clinton will surely stack the federal judiciary with liberal judges who will chip away at the Second Amendment. We cannot give her that opportunity.”
