Ron Paul Reacts to State of the Union Address: 'He Talked a Lot About Gun Control, I Don't Think the American People Are Going to Put Up With That'

Former presidential candidate Ron Paul reacted to President Obama's State of the Union address tonight with John Stossel on Fox Business Network.

Paul said in the speech, "certainly we

didn't get any answers tonight" to the key issues facing the nation.

"Everything on the surface looks like it's welfare-ism and warfare-ism forever. But I think underneath there's a smoldering desire that is growing by leaps and bounds that's saying that a lot of the people in this country have had enough of it. Tonight he talked a lot about gun control, I don't think the American people are going to put up with that," said Paul.

Watch the full discussion:

Paul went on to take questions from Stossel's audience. One man asked Paul what he thinks it will take for some of Obama's supporters to start protesting U.S. policies the way they did when George W. Bush was in office.

See what other conservatives said in response to the president's speech, including Sen. Marco Rubio on behalf of the GOP and Sen. Rand Paul for the Tea Party.
