Biden: W.H. eyeing 19
executive actions on guns

Politico, by Reid J. Epstein

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 1/15/2013 7:20:10 AM

The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips. But Biden,

None of the measures they are talking about would prevent another school massacre. This is the foundation for the gun grab the liberals have been planning for years. They are very patient.

Can´t pass through legislation, so do it through edict.

This is when states need to take a stand.

There have been other mass shootings in Obama´s first term. Of course, he would not propose gun control before his re-election campaign lest that become an issue that would stir up opposition.

So when is the MSM going to start complaining about Our Dear Readers ´Imperial White House´ that is circumventing the ´Rule of Law´ and the Constitution?

Don´t expect a peek from the MSM!

fta: “It was all focusing on enforcing existing law, administering things like improving the background database, things like that that do not involve a change in the law but enforcing and making sure that the present law is administered as well as possible,” said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).


So long as the executive orders only enforce existing law, then they really can´t be challenged. But how many people really expect the orders won´t stretch or break existing laws -- or more likely create laws where there were none before?

The worst part is, that it really won´t matter to the next bunch of innocent people trapped in a gun-free zone with some nutcase who ignores laws anyway.

As I have understood the process for quite awhile, please let me elaborate. To make a new law a bill has to be introduced in the House first and voted on by a majority of the representatives. Then it proceeds to the Senate where an exactly similar worded bill must be passed by a majority of the Senate. It then proceeds to the president who either agrees and signs it or disagrees and vetos it. If that is in the affirmative then we have a genuine new law. An executive order does not follow this process so it is not a directive that I intend to follow.

IMHO, this is all theater for the one objective that will lead to confiscation in the future. The Dems know they can not pass anything so they will push for the REASONABLE requirement for universal background checks, which is the precursor for a NATIONAL DATABASE. Then they can come and get them.

Don´t believe for a second that these actions are anything but a smokescreen for some other Obama sneak attack! If he can do them that´s just icing on the Obama cake! In the meantime Benghazi is dying down, there is no furor over the real cost of Obamacare and no public outcry over the clowns he´s nominating for his cabinet! Joe Biden has got to be furious that he has to keep doing the presidents job while Barack spends his time on the golf course or on a basketball court.

Obama is pushing hard to incite violence. It is what he wants and who he is. He knows once things turn violent, he can bring the full force and weight of the government down on the perpetrators. Otherwise why would he be so confrontational? He could have had an reasonable conversation with the American people on the subject of gun violence, but he wanted to stir the pot. Things are going just as he planned. He needs us divided and at each others throats to further his agenda. It is a simple strategy, divide and conquer.

One has to wonder, considering the socialist agenda, if the DC commies won´t move against and ban private property, if they succeed in a gun grab. It´s supposedly a part of Agenda 21. With all the money we owe China, bamster could carve up the whole US and give it to them through the UN for compensation. Foreclosure is foreclosure.

Number 16 may be correct. The president is either knowingly or miserably inept, and may incite violence.
Makes one think of Iran who believes their savior will only come to conquor the world for their religion after catastrophic destruction. And they think they are bringing it about by their actions.

If the information in this article is correct, then all the actions cited here will do absolutely nothing to stop or deminish mass violence and school shootings. How many criminals and mentality deranged people have been denied a gun over the past 30 or 40 yrs? I´d bet a bent nickel that that number is VERY small. The overwhelming owners of firearms are peaceful, law abiding citizens. And all they want is to be left alone to live their lives as THEY choose to do.

I have to agree that the long term goal here is to overturn the 2nd Amendment in any way they can. The reason is simple. An armned citizenry is impossible to defeat. You must first disarm the citizens to be able to take over a country. Re-read the history of the communist takeover of Russia. Their way of disarming the citizens was to round them up and shoot them. Mass murder. I really don´t think that will happen here because I don´t believe our military will fire on it´s own people. But in any case, we must constantly be on alert.

Obama may view himself as supreme, but this is a Republic and states rule over the federal gov. The Constitution cannot be changed except as the majority of states vote to do so. THAT´S not going to happen. We must not let ourselves be pressured into giving up any right by something as tenuous as Executive Orders which cannot change anything fundamental. Cling to your Bibles, guns and state constitutions and stand your ground! And God bless America!

When a president attempts to defeat the checks and balances of the other branches of government, by trying to use executive orders, he is nothing more than a wannabe dictator! I don´t think most democrats would want that. The far, wacky, left is OK with it, until a Republican gets the White House...

I am repeating myself only because I know that the Dems cannot pass anything through the congress. For that reason they will put forth REASONABLE ideas like UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS, embedded in this will be provision for a NATIONAL DATABASE. After the dust settles another tragedy will happen in another GUN FREE ZONE, after which the Dems will enact more REASONABLE rules eliminating guns from CERTAIN households, then the NATIONAL DATABASE will be used to pick up the guns from certain people, a list which will expand quickly, till they have enough that the population is DISARMED.

If I hear any politician or media hack say,"high-capacity clip","magazine clip" or "gun clip" one more time, my head is going to explode! They are called "magazines". A clip is something a little girl puts in her hair.
How can one try to ban something that doesn´t exist? The ignorant MSM is so oblivious to this because they don´t use or know a dang thing about those scary guns. Pathetic.

In late February, the City University of New York announced that it had tapped Princeton economist and New York Times blogger Paul Krugman for a distinguished professorship at CUNY’s Graduate Center and its Luxembourg Income Study Center, a research arm devoted to studying income patterns and their effect on inequality. About that. According to a formal offer letter obtained under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.” It is not

As predictable as the media silence to follow comes the news that New York City´s new left-wing mayor, who ran on a platform based in large part on raising taxes, paid an effective 8.3% tax rate in 2013 based on a total income of over $200,000. Mayor de Blasio and his wife made $167,047 in income, $52,000 in rental income on a second home in Park Slope, and reported charitable donations that totaled just 3% of their income, or $5,597.

Attorney General Eric Holder‘s planned meeting with mainstream media outlets’ Washington bureau chiefs have been stalled after the Justice Department indicated that the conversations would be off-the-record. The New York Times‘ executive editor Jill Abramson was the first to decline the invitation, and shortly after the AP, CNN, CBS News and The Huffington Post followed suit. With much of the debate over the DOJ’s subpoena guidelines revolving around reporter James Rosen, Fox News clearly has a vested interest in the outcome of the meeting. While there appears to be a mini-campaign among Fox anchors to send Rosen himself to the meeting

Sorry, Rev, but Christianity isn´t

Here’s a thought for the day: Most people are “nice”, but Christians should be nice with a purpose. I am not a fan of the sitcom Rev, which depicts a vicar trying to be kind to his parishioners – with hilarious consequences. His congregation is small, full of delinquents, and the eponymous clergymen is often driven to drink by their unholy antics. Justin Welby disagrees with the show’s depiction of Anglican life because he notes that many churches are growing. The Rev’s, by contrast, conforms to a self-lacerating vision of Christianity as nice but niche. But self-laceration is the stock-in-trade of the

Louisiana GOP: Mary Landrieu ad fakery

Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, in a neck-and-neck race for re-election, is taking a lot of criticism over a new ad -- her first this season -- depicting herself taking on "Washington" to protect the interests of Louisiana´s oil and gas industry. What Landrieu did to invite the ridicule was to re-create for her ad producers her own performance in a Senate hearing -- complete with set, supporting cast, fake nameplate, and even phony news chyrons -- to show her standing up for her state. The unspoken message of the ad -- something Landrieu could never say directly -- is that

When recently asked what she was most proud of from her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton replied that the office was like a “relay race.” “When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton,” she said. Mrs. Clinton was unable to cite any specific achievement, though she did make the rather dubious claim that “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense.” Even some of her most ardent admirers couldn’t figure out a good answer to the question about her greatest achievement, during a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” As Ed

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
