Rand Paul: Obama Helping 'Anti-American Globalists Plot Against Our Constitution'

Rand Paul on Saturday accused President Obama of working with "anti-American globalists" to "plot against our Constitution."

The email blast was sent on behalf of the National Association on Gun Rights and heavily criticized the president's gun control efforts. Here's a snippet of the email, courtesy of the Washington Post's Ezra Klein.

On November 7th, his administration gleefully voted at the UN for a renewed effort to pass the “Small Arms Treaty.”

But after the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut — and anti-gun hysteria in the national media reaching a fever pitch — there’s no doubt President Obama and his anti-gun pals believe the timing has never been better to ram through the U.N.’s global gun control crown jewel.

I don’t know about you, but watching anti-American globalists plot against our Constitution makes me sick.

The Kentucky Senator (R) has repeatedly spoken out against new laws on gun control. Most recently, he threatened to filibuster a bill to expand background checks on gun purchases. The Senate attempted to use cloture to circumvent the filibuster, but ended up falling short of the 60 votes needed to pass the bill.

Paul called the bill "a dog and pony show" and accused Obama of using the Newtown victims' families-- who were present during the vote-- as political props.
