Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Republicans should use the upcoming debt-ceiling talks to craft legislation that would block Obama from doing anything that is unconstitutional in light of the administration’s suggestion they may bypass Congress to craft laws banning certain types of guns.

“In March, the Congress has a continuing resolution,” Gingrich told Newsmax. “The government is going to run out of money. The Congress has to pass the continuing resolution.

“They should put in a prohibition on spending to block anything that the president does that is illegal,” Gingrich said. “Congress has absolute authority to control spending. The House Republicans should craft into the continuing resolution a rule that the president is blocked from doing anything unconstitutional.”

Gingrich, who ran for the 2012 Republican nomination and lost to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, has been vocal in his support for Americans’ rights to bear arms.
