Rubio: Obama 'Obsessed With Undermining the Second Amendment'

 (Fox News)

President Barack Obama is "obsessed with undermining the Second Amendment" protections, and is looking for any way possible to do that, GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio said Tuesday.

"This executive order is just one more way to make it harder for law-abiding people to buy weapons to be able to protect their families," the Florida senator told Fox News' Bill Hemmer on the "America's Newsroom" program. "This will do nothing to prevent violent crimes."

The executive order will also be "burdensome" on people who sell guns individually in a private manner, said Rubio, because "if they get it wrong it somehow they miss a step along the way they're facing imprisonment. I mean this is a very significant executive action that he's taken. It's detrimental and undermines the Second Amendment and it's part of a broader narrative and that is this president is obsessed with undermining the constitution in general but the Second Amendment in particular."

And the executive order, Rubio said, will do nothing to prevent gun violence or crimes "because criminals don't follow the law."

Rubio also spoke out about the unrest in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran, saying that Saudi Arabia is a military ally of the United States, while Iran is an "avowed enemy" that "every Friday leads chants of death to America and death to Israel."

"You have this White House trying to act like Iran is an honest broker," and Obama is trying to act like a "mediator between two friends."

"Iran is not a friend of the United States," Rubio continued, and it should be made "abundantly clear whose side we are on in this dispute."

Further, the burning of the Saudi embassy in Tehran shows "the kind of regime that they have, where they have allowed people to storm an embassy, which is a violation of every rule of diplomatic protocol."

Iran, he continues, violates all rules of international order, including testing ballistic missiles, and then the Obama administration agreed on the deal to "send billions of dollars to them."

"He betrays our allies, he cut a deal with our adversaries, and he undermines America's reputation and standing in the world," said Rubio.
