Biden: Obama Can Use "Executive Orders" To Act On Gun Control (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | January 9, 2013 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 01/09/2013 9:05:36 AM PST by i88schwartz

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."

We all knew this was coming.

And what exactly has the GOP been doing?

Why not discuss how the government and police have failed to protect citizens . . . just point to the crime statistics and the drug cartels which overwhelming show the inadequacy of law enforcement notwithstanding their often brave and best efforts?

Why not point to all those saved lives and prevented crimes because some good citizen intervened with a gun?

It’s as if the GOP is happy to roll over for the DemoQuacks on the gun debate.

OK, Joe, whatever you say. And I can use my index finger to counter such an unconstitutional act.

This is rule by law not rule of law and lead by a murderous criminal Attorney General who has been held in Contempt of Congress and has gotten two US agents killed along with large number of Mexicans. Are we a banana republic yet?

He may be able to instruct the ATF, etc. in what their policies should be but he cannot enact law via an EO that requires the states, cities and counties to comply should they choose not to.

The gun grabber class is coming to the realization that they don’t have the votes in Congress, and they don’t have majority public support for their proposed gun law changes. Hence, they’re left with trying to convince the public that an Executive Order infringement on our rights is legitimate.

Good luck with that...

Sure, just like they handled kenyancare. You're delusional if you think any court will not uphold anything the kenyan does.

Impeach the kenyan or secession.

Poor old Joe is way off base, as usual. The simple truth of the separation of powers between states and the fed is explained here by Sheriff Richard Mack of Oath Keepers. (7 minutes)

The video includes details of them suing (and winning) over Clinton signing the Brady Bill.

Meh. This is talk (so far) by a man that has already proven himself to be a bafoon. My take is to speak softly and carry a big stick.

All this gun grabbing fear is really a waste of time. Either nothing will happen or they will try something and the other side may choose the more “dire” course in response.

Heck, I believe Obama won the election because BOTH parties realized that if he lost our cities would burn and we would be in civil war. I really believe they believe that grabbing even assault weapons would be just as devastating.

But it keeps us from noticing what’s going on with the economy. It’s basically a “look over there” tactic.

On my way to drop my son off this morning- I saw someone with a bumper sticker that read: “The hardest part about the Zombie Apocalypse is that I have to pretend like I am not excited”.

The left seems very excited to light this candle- and I wonder if they realize that there are some people who are excited about hunting zombies.

I found this while looking for something else yesterday: http://home.earthlink.net/~sharpsshtr/CritterPhotos/SandyHook/SandyHook.html

Everything looks so strange these days.

The weak traitorous US Congress did NOTHING when Obama
plotted to have raped and murdered
a US Ambassador on TV
so as to coverup his shift
of 20,000 MANPADS and weapons to al Qaeda.

And they will do NOTHING now, except cash their
paychecks as they smugly laugh, free of ObamaCARE
and accountability.

This is the reason for the second amendment.

The executive branch of government that does not recognize the other two branches of government as co-equals is truly a danger to this country.

If Obama decides to go, ‘Django unchained’, against the ‘Bitter Clingers’, then all hell will break out.

It is coming.

A direct violation of the clear statement and intent of the Constitution is treason.

If that statement is true, then it is treason:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

My only complaint in all of this is that there will be many law enforcement who are against disraming the public who will be forced to participate in the confiscation and be injured or killed as a result.

Why not let all the gun control zealots and communists take point on this and let them be the ones to try to disarm us instead of those who may not favor this?

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.

"Civil war is coming."

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".
