Gun control continues to be a major point of discussion in Washington.Out of the many discussions taking place right now, Neugebauer said the most troubling discussion is whether or not President Obama will issue an executive order on gun control. He said an order like that would be a very “dangerous” move for the country.

“I think one of the things the vice-president Biden said last week was that the President may use this executive order, and I think that would be a very dangerous road for the President to go down. The 2nd Amendment is a constitutional right, and I don’t think the President has the authority to override the Constitution.”

Neugebauer also addressed a caller’s concern about emphasizing the difference between semi-automatic weapons and “assault” weapons. He also agreed with the caller that the original intent of the 2nd amendment was to protect ourselves from tyrannical governments, whether they were foreign or domestic.

Neugebauer also discussed some of the problems with the Senate’s Hurricane Sandy relief bill. He said that the Senate bill is filled with extraneous measures that have nothing to do with Hurricane Sandy, such as measure dealing with Alaskan fisheries, and he hopes the House version of the bill will be “saner” and not have all of those unnecessary measures.

You can listen to Congressman Randy Neugebauer Mondays at 7:35 during Lubbock’s First News on NewsTalk 790 KFYO.
