Doug Little on Obama’s Gun Grab: “It Really Wasn’t that Big of a Deal”

Posted: January 24, 2013 at 2:12 pm   /   by

The AZGOP Chairman’s race is heating up and the showdown between conservative activist/ businessman Robert Graham and businessman/ firearms instructor Doug Little will be held this Saturday in Central Phoenix.

While Graham has been winning the endorsement war hands down, the vote is expected to be competitive on Saturday.

However, a new video has recently surfaced on the Internet showcasing a clip from the recent Casa Grande debate where Little and Graham were both asked to address President Obama’s gun control grab Executive Orders.  Typically this would have been a perfect moment for both candidates to seize on the red meat opportunity and lambast the president, but candidate Little’s response has us perplexed – especially from a man who makes his living as a firearms instructor.

When asked to comment on President Obama’s “gun grab” Little responded:

“The good news?  It really wasn’t that bad.”

“Not that bad?”

Another Arizona blog recently listed the 23 Executive Orders, including one provision that allows doctors to ask if you have a gun in your home.

Watch the entire clip below.  Candidate Graham was right to point out that regardless of whether or not the president’s 23 Executive Orders were tantamount to “gun control,” the real issue is that the president abused his executive privilege by circumventing the US Congress to enact his radical agenda outside of the halls of public debate.
