Obama White House Readies 19 Executive Actions on Gun Controls

It wasn’t just a threat…

The Obama Administration is readying 19 executive actions on gun control.
The Politico reported:

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, who has been leading Obama’s task force on the response, spent two hours briefing a small group of sympathetic House Democrats on the road ahead in the latest White House outreach to invested groups.

The focus on executive orders is the result of the White House and other Democrats acknowledging the political difficulty of enacting any new gun legislation, a topic Biden did not address in Monday’s meeting.

The executive actions could include giving the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authority to conduct national research on guns, more aggressive enforcement of existing gun laws and pushing for wider sharing of existing gun databases among federal and state agencies, members of Congress in the meeting said.

    And not one of these EO’s will have ANY EFFECT on the gun violence in cities like Chicago.
    They WILL lead, however, to future fun confiscation, mark my words.

    Give it a rest Hussein. The American Militia nullifies your pieces of paper.

    ‘ If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual State. In a single State, if the persons entrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair.
    — Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28

    “That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms … ”
    — Samuel Adams, Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, at 86-87 (Pierce & Hale, eds., Boston, 1850)
    “[The Constitution preserves] the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
    –James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46

    “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.”
    –John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States 475 (1787-1788)

    “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”
    –Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787).

    “Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American…[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”
    –Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    “The militia is the natural defense of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpation of power by rulers. The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally … enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”
    — Joseph Story, Supreme Court Justice, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, p. 3:746-7, 1833’

    Why Mr. Freud, was that a slip?

    Why doesn’t Obama just come clean and issue an Executive Order stating the U.S. Constitution is null and void, because that is exactly what he is doing and has done to date. He is a dictator, an illegal usurper, a terrorist, and an enemy to the U.S.

    What Barry Soetoro, aka Barrack H. Obama, really wants is a listing of who has the guns and where they are, then he’ll see about confiscation. THAT WILL BE ON HIS LIST OF EXEC ORDERS!

    Comrade Hussein has been getting away with treason for years. He should have been stopped before he even began. (No matter what anyone says, he is a foreigner.) His comrades-in-arms, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, among others, infiltrated the educational system when they couldn’t get their way as domestic terrorists and political agitators. They paved the way for the likes of Hussein and his entitled crowd of hustlers, grifters, subversives and agitators, including his wannabe Evita. They burrowed into the educational system. rendered it dysfunctional, which has been turning out barely functional illiterates for decades. We conservatives must get a hold on the educational system, if we are to survive as a nation.

    My G-d, we have so much work to do to restore this Great Constitutional Republic. There will be much pain in the process.

    Redwine, you hit the nail on the head my friend …. if we don’t regain control of our educational system, morons like Shadow will be the norm. God help us if that happens …

    About time, and thank you, Rep. Stockman.

    Of course, these articles of impeachment will never see a vote in the House. Not while Boehner is Speaker.

    Where are the elected GOP ,the great tea party candidates from 2010> C;mon we are paying you $174,899 a yr to do yr job, that is a bundle. It is not a permanent job.
    Stand up for the USA. TRy, Do! Fight back, For this one time period don’t be the Permanent Loser Party of the past
    That is a bigger prob we have, The GOP is so busy going after Palin and won’t go after obama on many of these easy low hanging fruit Exec orders.

    The GOP is afraid that Sarah Palin will be named head of the NRA, and get a bully pulpit to artticulate conservative values.

    #10, The U.N. and any other country, Ain’t gonna have the “Stones” to come in to the United States of America, unless and untill we are disarmed. Obama can issue any executive order he would like to,but he still has to go Door to Door and House to House against people who have the physical and technical means to resist, in order to enforce it. Or as Thomas Jefferson said: “The Beauty of the Second Ammendment is, you don’t really need it untill they try to take it away”.
