Vice President Joe Biden, while addressing representatives of gun safety and gun violence victims' groups, says President Obama could use "executive orders" to enact gun control measures.
VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: "The president is going to act. There are executives orders -- executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the Attorney General and all the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action, we believe is required."

Good way to “trigger” a revolution Joe.
“The Const says he cant”
But he nominates who decides what is constitutional and what isn’t. And then there is traitor Roberts...
You bring up an interesting point and I would like to take it one step further.
We have had several heinous mass shootings committed by mentally unstable people with guns. The left's response is to curtail the rights of law abiding citizens to participate in constitutionally guaranteed activity.
Meanwhile over the past 5 years the Cartels have taken over much of the interstate illegal drug trade. Most of this is being done by illegals. If the right even suggests tighter immigration enforcement against those that have broken the law to enter the U.S., we are called racist.
Thank You Joe bite me, for tipping me off as to what is comming next. Sadly I don’t see enough people standing in the way.
I would rather suffer an EMP attack or total economic collapse.
Sady, though, we won't be given a choice - I was "hoping" for either of those to occur before "We the people" had to resort to that unmentionable "Plan B".
Veterans and police, do your duty.
Congress could put a stop to this abuse in a second. But they won’t because the republicans are in bed with the left.
What is the penalty for treason, Joe?
Just a reminder, the first time enforcement meets resistance.......
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND:
Obamacare was passed /signed legislation that was contested on particular legal merits/flaws--
THISSS healthcare battle is not over yet either... IMO
There is nothing in the Constitution or federal case law that permits legislation by "executive order" -- especially the lifting or disregard of fundamental rights...
If your views /predictions are true....
....A sweeping "executive order" these matters is upheld on the merits and the METHODS of infringing upon the 2nd Amendment....
Congress might as well close the doors & go home.
This is a bear-trap that soon might capture a certain overgrown narcissistic ego--
Again... just my humble...
Everyone have a nice day
Is there still anyone among the congresscritters that believes in the Constitution and is willing to stand up for it?
At the very least, he'll do something similar to what Bush 41 did, and prohibit the importation of firearms. Perhaps the importation of ammo, too.
Those who own Mosin-Nagants, SKS Carbines, etc., better have enough of the (relatively) inexpensive steel-cased ammo, to last them several lifetimes. The supply is about to dry up.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain . . .
“Clear video clip of him saying just that. It appears this administration is deliberately trying to provoke conflict. VERY important to let them start it first.”
Very important indeed!
Prudence is not paranoia.
“Meanwhile over the past 5 years the Cartels have taken over much of the interstate illegal drug trade. Most of this is being done by illegals. If the right even suggests tighter immigration enforcement against those that have broken the law to enter the U.S., we are called racist. “
Very good point. The narco traffickers blend within the illegal alien community, and yet we don’t blame the illegals for the drugs.
Why does the left want to punish law-abiding gun owners for those few who commit heinous acts with the guns. How many guns exist in America? And how many crimes are committed with guns. Only a tiny amount of guns — .001 percent? — are involved in crimes. How many people own guns? How many people commit crimes with guns? Only a time amount of people — .001 percent — of gun owners commit crimes.
I am sick of the broad brush with which gun ownership is painted in order to target a tiny segment.
There are thousands of people killed by drunk drivers each year but do I have to lose my right to drink or to drive simply because a lot of other idiots drink and drive?
The left simply doesn’t like guns, and I haven’t yet figured out why?
