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.

First they need to restrict the ability to use executive orders by the the president; it’s obvious there’s not enough checks and balances in this regard and it’s being abused against the offend people. He must have seen this loophole before he ran for president.

Unfortunately there are too many (low information) voters who actually disagree with us on this.
Chowder head Biden has sniffed too much cement glue.
There's also the 2nd Amendment thingy. I guess the NY Daily News isn't aware of it.
Yes SIR!! They are about to piss us off— and they don’t want that. No they don’t.
If Joe believes what he is saying, why fart around with Congress at all, Just let Obama get the job done.
Dick-tator Obama, the One, The where all and be all. The Savior.
Write it up bama-boy. let’s get this show on the road.
The sooner it’s done the sooner we can get America back on the right path.The Constitutional path.
Yeah but I thought the Supreme Court has previously ruled that the President can not use an executive order to create a new law. Of course with the enemy of liberty and freedom (a.k.a. Chief Justice John Roberts) sitting on the bench no telling what can happen.
I consider this an act of war.
The American Revolution began when the British tried to disarm the Colonists.
Biden is a lying ass clown. Worst VP ever? Probably.
“We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution!” ~ Biden and Obama
FU Dip Wad Joe!!!
HELLO POLICE TERROR STATE!!!!!
So much for following national CONSENSUS or “reaching across the aisle”.
Stalinists lie. Always.
He sounds like a used car salesman.
So if the Kenyan proto-dictator nullifies 2A with the stroke of a pen in defiance our God given individual constitutional rights, (both 2A and 4A) doesn’t he forfeit his right to his office? Would this not justify an arrest, a coup, and if he resists, would he not be subjected to the punishment of a traitor?
These anti-Constitution tyrants need brought to justice.
