Rand Paul: 2016 Presidential Run Under Consideration

About Rand

Dr. Rand Paul is the junior United States Senator for Kentucky. Elected in 2010, he has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility, and a warrior against government overreach. Among his first legislative proposals: cutting $500 billion in federal spending and a plan to balance the federal budget in just five years. He has since introduced similar bills with growing support. In the Senate, Rand serves on the Foreign Relations, Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, Homeland Security and Government Affairs, and Small Business Committees.

A graduate of Duke University School of Medicine, Rand was a practicing ophthalmologist in Bowling Green, Ky., for 17 years.

In 1995, he founded the Southern Kentucky Lions Eye Clinic, an organization that provides eye exams and surgery to needy families and individuals. Today, even as a U.S. Senator, he continues to provide pro-bono eye surgery to Kentuckians in need of care.

Rand has been a vocal advocate for term limits, a balanced-budget amendment, a Read the Bills Act, and an audit of the Federal Reserve. He has gained prominence for his independent positions on many political issues.

Rand has been married for over 20 years to Kelley Ashby of Russellville, Ky., and they have three sons. He is the son of former Republican Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas.


Rand Paul - Second Amendment

There are many in Washington who give lip service to the Second Amendment, but vote to restrict gun ownership once they begin serving in public office.  Gun control laws only restrict access to responsible gun ownership.  High risk individuals will still be able to acquire firearms even with an increase in prevention.  I do not support any proposed gun control law which would limit the right to gun ownership by those who are responsible, law-abiding citizens.

Politicians often give lip service to the 2nd Amendment but then go off to Washington and vote to restrict gun ownership. We need to send people to Washington that not only understand the 2nd amendment but the entire Bill of Rights.

How many supposed pro-gun politicians voted for the Patriot Act which gives the government the right to search your home without a warrant, when you're not home, leave listening devices, and use any and all information to create a prosecution on any charge regardless of their original reason for the search?

Gun rights advocates need to know that the 2nd amendment is only as good as the fourth amendment. If we are not free from unreasonable and warrantless searches, no one's guns are safe.

As your Senator, I plan to remain vigilant and fight against infringements on our 2nd Amendment rights.
