Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) vowed Wednesday to fight any effort by the Obama administration or members of Congress to enact gun control initiatives.

“We live in a republic, not a dictatorship,” Duncan said.

“The Founding Fathers never envisioned executive orders being used to restrict our constitutional rights.”

He added: “The president should not be able to act unilaterally when it comes to our constitutional rights. Executive orders were meant as a way for the president to implement legislatively passed laws, not to make law.”

Duncan was responding to comments made by Vice President Joe Biden, who is heading a task force to look into gun related tragedies following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
