Biden: W.H. readies 19 executive actions on guns By: Reid J. Epstein January 14, 2013 06:49 PM EST
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 administrations first definitive statements about its response to last months 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 Obamas 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 Mondays meeting.
It was all focusing on enforcing existing law, administering things like improving the background database, things like that that do not involve a change in the law but enforcing and making sure that the present law is administered as well as possible, said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).
But Biden did indicate that the remains of the Obama campaign apparatus may be activated in the effort.
He said that this has been a real focus on the policy and that the politics of this issue, that a strategy on the politics of the issue hasnt been undertaken yet, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told POLITICO. He did remind us that the campaign infrastructure is still accessible.

COME AND TAKE IT!
F U B O!
F U J B!
And which republican is going to stand up to obamie?
Selective enforcing of the laws they like and not enforcing the ones they don’t. FUBO
Mr Biden’s last name is pronounced Ger-Bels.
I remember when our country believed in the rule of law. The more I watch what Americans permit Obama to get away with, the more I realize just how long ago that was.
Found on another thread.
Blow it out yer anus!
Set Articles of Impeachment on ripple fire.
Thank you, Obama voters, for helping to bring down the greatest country ever on the face of the earth. He WON and we all lost.
My tinfoil hat is chiming in here:
Why would he use the number nineteen?
Something to do with Gun Appreciation day on the 19th?
Would this be sending a signal, perhaps?
Don’t expect Congress or the courts to defend your right to keep and bear arms. YOU will have to take a stand. YOU will have to resist.
Although he’s a nobody, we must remember to also have Rimshot Joe arrested at the same time Barry is arrested for violating the Second Amendment rights of Americans.
Would any one of those 19 have prevented Sandy Hook from happening or prevent future Sandy Hook type attacks?
Or are these more punitive, aimed at gun owners?
The simple fact that the girly-man Boehner and McConnel will NOT stand up for our Constitution is as infuriating as the actions that the Marxist will undertake.
It is certain that the path the Marxists are on will compel "We the People" to take back our government and restore our Republic.
There were nineteen muslim hijackers, if you don’t count Obama.
“And which republican is going to stand up to obamie?”
Let that sink in, folks. What does that mean?
IMO, this whole thing is a lost game unless we’re willing to cross that line.
This will be his undoing! Just watcb the repercushens from this. Watch the way the nation reacts. He is really treading water now. After this, he’ll be wishing he never started.
This will be great news if Obama and the democrats do this.
As Captian Johnny Parker stated so very long ago on that day on Lexington Green in Concord, “If it’s war they want, let it begin here, let it begin now.”
Farrakhan was enamored with the number 19.
He re-elected HIMSELF, America didn’t. Did you really expect the Chicago thug to allow an election to proceed without tampering with it? NO.
Wow - I can’t wait to forced to register with a national database so some journalist can spill my personal information all over the internet. :)
It may be time to have Citizens openly oppose this president in the streets, supporter against supporter, in order that law is returned to prominence.
May the SEALs descend upon the WH the moment 0bama signs any EO which alters Americans’ ‘inalienable’ right to bear arms.
Thanks to all here who wanted to stop the Mormon. Thanks to those who went 3rd Party -— how did that Gary Johnson or Tom Hoefling vote work out? Look where we are now.
Civil Disobedience is about to manifest. Let them come.

Oh come on King Obama go for it and make “new” law by decree.
Oh come on King Obama go for it and make
10 day waiting period for ammo? Special fee assessed on every bullet for firearms education and various enforcement?
Fee for every registered gun owner to take course or forfeit their firearms? License fee due each year for ownership?
Don’t put anything past these guys.
Uh huh... and who’s going to vote to convict? Harry Reid’s senate?
We are headed for civil war and/or national breakup. Period. The fuse has been lit, you cannot stop it. Its time people accept it and trying to think you can “system” your way out of it.
On Feb. 15th the SCOTUS has scheduled a hearing on 0bama’s elegibility . I can’t wait to hear this .
We need to remember he is our President and not our king. We are not peasants and he our master. We are AMERICANS and we owe it to those proud Americans who fought and many died to maintain our freedoms. We shall not less this one pass.
Anyone who can read a history book should be able to see that the left wants us totally disarmed so they can easily bend us to their will. I for one will not submit my freedom to this administration.
If Congress doesn't stop him both the President and Congress will have finally deemed themselves to be against the constitution lock stock and barrel and in need of replacement.
Somehow, I think there’ll be a good chance that it comes back to being about money.
It's a contest ~ will Obamugoober come out first as a moslem or as a queer? Bet it's neck and neck!
and ^stop trying to system your way out of it.
It is time for the Governors and the states to put a foot down. They must draw the line.
This is serious.
He did remind us that the campaign infrastructure is still accessible.
Sounds like he is unleashing the brownshirts. Ominous
Our forefathers took on the greatest Empire of its time and kicked ass.
Don`t Tread on Me!
Obummer is a Madman as crazy as Stalin, Mao and Hitler.
He thinks he is an Emperor.
The Second Amendment protects all the other amendments in the Bill of Rights.
For Obummer to speak against the Second Amendment is to hate the U.S. Consiutution and to hate America. Obummer is guilty of hate speech against America. Therefore he should be prosecuted and punished.
Thanks to all here who wanted to stop the Mormon.Wouldn't BO have won regardless? Isn't that what crooks do?
that’s all right, we’ll know which courts need some work done on them, then.
don’t forget difi and pelosi and reid.
Yeah, we can “civil war” our way out of it and into . . .
You have a dustup a bit more serious than the Whiskey Rebellion, but much less so than the Civil War, all sorts of things can happen.
I doubt your top Democrat crew will stay at the helm if something happens ~ you'll see Cuomo and his crowd leave the country ~ sail back to Sicilia more than likely, and their two goober senators will flee right behind them although Chucky might try again to convince the Israelis that he's really Jewish so they gotta' let him in ~ lotsa luck Chucky ~ nobody believes you on that score!
You'd see the same thing all over the country with Democrat politicians fleeing for their lives.
It’s also Calypso Louie Farrakhan’s favorite number...
The number 19 is Calypso Louie’s magic number. It’s also an important number in Islam.
