Obama: Some Gun Control Measures ‘I Can Accomplish Through Executive Action’: We are not surprised. This President has no respect for the Second Amendment; so it is only natural that he regard the Second Article with a similar disdain.

He has a Wilsonian approach. He is a firm believer in the administrative technocrats as the day to day managers of the state. The political side provides the means to create the administrative apparatus.

He could resign. That would probably “reduce the possibility of gun violence”.

Obama is the best friend gun stores have ever had. BTW, “common sense gun regulations” from a Democrat means we’ll take your guns a step at a time until one day you wake up defenseless.

They aren’t going to take shit. They can restrict future sales, but the American gun owning public is too well informed, and suspicious, to allow them to take what we have without a bloody fight.
The only way they can do anything to stop gun use is to ban the sale of ammo, but there are too many reloaders out there to end the supply of anything but rimfire ammo.
Lead is easily available, and powder can be made at home. Primers can be bought in large enough quantities as to keep one supplied for decades.

“It’s good to be the king”, said Obama to no one in particular…..Rulling by decree, taxes, wasn’t that what got the British tossed out of here a couple hundred years ago? Maybe Sean Connery was right in the movie “The Hunt for Red October”, ” a little revolution now and again is a good thing”…..

He’ll make every measure that he takes seem innocuous, almost benevolent, but make no mistake, he has his eyes on ALL gun owners. He already knows who the gun owners are. So, slowly, but surely, he’ll begin to confiscate and each step will seem, in an of itself, to be harmless and of no real consequence. But all those inconsequential steps will add up to one big dose of tyranny and soon we will be defenseless. You say, but wait, how much can he do in 4 years? Don’t believe it… he’s going to get more time. YOu think this past election was questionable, and it was, just wait until the next one.

He only knows who the LEGAL gun owners are that bought from licensed dealers over the last 40 years or so.

No, he can’t. Last I checked, the executive branch cannot make laws. SCOTUS WHERE ARE YOU?

According to Judge Napolitano, exec orders can only change how the laws are enforced, they cannot change, or enact new, laws.

So he cannopt institute a gun ban, or a imit on number of weapons owned, ot , well ANYTHING that would affect this by legal executive order. Plus in his latest spew, he commented (paraphrased) that if he can do one thing that saves a child’s life, he will do it. Well none of the suggestions so far have any bearing on anyone’s safety, except maybe incompetent members of government.

The honorable Judge is talking about law. We’re talking about Obama, who knows no law.

Another attempt at circumventing the US Constitution by this communist. barry doesn’t seem to get it, those that he things will enforce this illegal attempt are some of the most freedom loving people. He’s got a BIG surprise coming.

SCOTUS called OCare a tax instead of the unconstitutional thing it is in order to protect Roberts’ “legacy”. SCOTUS cannot be trusted either. And evidently, under OCare, your doctor has to report EVERYTHING going on in your household if there’s a gun in the house? POTUS is “fixing” his POS HC law with fiats, and I guess that is one of them. I am looking into that. Lots of guns will go missing if they try to grab them.

Actually the NRA got wording into the budget bill that forbids them from asking about firearms.

Yes, but when did das dictator care about stuff like that when an executive fiat autopenned by his divine self can over rule pesky wording he doesn’t agree with…..

“The president plans to reveal the details of that plan shortly before noon on Wednesday, joined by children who wrote him letters on the issue…”

Shameless pandering. I thought the campaign was over.

It’s sickening that he gets away with crap like that. Considering that gun sales are going through the roof, many people see through this and see him for what he is. Unfortunately not enough people saw this on Nov 6th. Right after the election I was telling people he’s coming for our guns, as I’m sure many of you had. I joined the NRA on the 7th, people said I was nuts. I thought it would take longer than it has, considering he hasn’t even started his second term yet (isn’t that a scary thought), but never let a good crisis go to waste.

As far as the campaign being over, the campaign will never be over because the main tool he uses is propaganda. That’s all he has.

Who is going to enforce the EO’s, and how would the enforcement be carried out? How would the resistance approach this??
