Vice President Biden pledged Wednesday that President Obama will bypass a reluctant Republicans in Congress and take executive action to curb gun violence, prompting a full-blown fit from conservative gun rights backers.
Biden heads a White House task force set this month to release proposals in response to the Newtown shooting. He told reporters before a Wednesday meeting with gun violence victims and gun control groups that Obama will not let Republican resistance prevent action.
"The president is going to act. There are executives orders, there's executive action that can be taken," Biden said. "We haven't decided what that is yet." Biden said Obama will also offer legislative proposals.
The Vice President's remarks set a tough tone ahead of another meeting Thursday with pro-gun organizations including the National Rifle Association and Wal-Mart, the nation's leading seller of firearms.
"I want to make clear that we're not going to get caught up in the notion that, unless we can do everything, were going to do nothing," said Biden, who was joined at the meeting by Attorney General Eric Holder.

Good Lord; Bite-me said Obungo will use “executive action” to bring about gun control. Doesn’t that ignoramus know what “executive action’ means?
Dick Cheney guarantees Bush will bypass reluctant Democrats and cement new speech control laws (by executive order).
The media would be calling for impeachment, 24/7 news coverage of the Constitutional crisis, a count down would start for Bush's forced resignation. And you know what? That would be the right response because a president who did this is violating his oath to uphold the Constitution.
Now compare that to the media response to this headline...
That stupid so-and-so might as well try to ban Vise-grips or barbecue grills.
Before you know it we’ll have amnesty for illegal aliens and a nationalized health care system! /s
Its a trap. Biden couldn’t guarantee the sun will rise tomorrow.
Because if your elected officials can take our rights by edict you truly have no rights. Today's anti-gun dictator may become tomorrow's anti-speech dictator.
Regardless what he “allows” or forbids, only a dictator creates or takes rights with the stroke of a pen.
“Dick Cheney guarantees Bush will bypass reluctant Democrats and cement new ABORTION control laws (by executive order).”
Calling Dr. Phill!
And of course, anyone else the least bit reverant to the Constitution.

Obama cannot pass a law.
To those who didn't vote for Romney, You hold some responsibility for what we're now facing. You saw the destruction Obama did in his first term, but you had more rage for Romney. I blame a good portion of what we're currently facing with this Tyrant on these so-called “Patriots.” Hope you can look at yourself in the mirror. I'd be ashamed if i were you.
