GOP candidates hammer Obama's executive action on guns
By Tim Devaney
GOP presidential candidates are hammering President Obama over his reported executive action on guns.
Republican front-runner Donald Trump and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) are threatening to overturn the gun control measures if elected president, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina are also criticizing the move.
In an interview with “Fox News Sunday,” Christie called Obama a “petulant child” who goes around Congress “whenever he can’t get what he wants."
“This president wants to act as if he’s a king, as if he’s a dictator,” Christie said.
“The fact is, if he wants to make changes to these laws, go to Congress and convince them that they’re necessary,” he continued. “But this is going to be another illegal executive action, which I’m sure will be rejected by the courts, and when I become president will be stricken from executive action."
