Sen. Paul: The Issue Is Not Gun Control But ‘Unlimited Immigration from the Middle East’

‘I think we have to talk about whether there needs to be some limits on those who are coming from the Middle East, since we don’t know really who’s already here’

SMERCONISH: "Are there any weapons that Rand Paul would say, now, that's not for civilian use?"

PAUL: "If people want to change the Second Amendment, you know, there is a process for changing the constitution. Our founding fathers made it difficult, because freedom of speech, freedom of religion, right to bear arms, they didn't want to make it easy for government to change these things. We do have some restrictions. And the Supreme Court has ruled that there can be some restrictions. But what people need to understand is the most strict of restrictions are in California, and yet, these weapons were still purchased legally. Really, the question is, are we going to continue to have unlimited immigration from the Middle East? I think we have to talk about whether there needs to be some limits on those who are coming from the Middle East, since we don't know really who's already here. And how many people who have come want to attack and kill us."
