Posted on 01/15/2013 8:55:33 AM PST by Olog-hai
President Barack Obama plans this week to present 19 separate executive orders on gun control and will press for comprehensive legislation to expand gun-purchase background checks, lawmakers made privy to the presidents agenda said Monday, according to the New York Times.
The biggest congressional fight on gun control in early 20 yearswhich also includes efforts to ban assault weapons and high-capacity clipscould be launched as soon as Wednesday, the Times reports.
But considering the presidents expected inability to get acceptance for his plan through Congress, Obama will not shy away from using executive orders for restrictions he deems necessary, according to the Times.
Those actions are expected to include limits on guns imported from overseas, pressure on federal agencies to improve sharing of mental health records, and directing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to conduct research on gun violence, according to lawmakers informed of the presidents plans, the Times reports.

And the Congress will not shy away from impeaching him nor the military from overthrowing him.
Maybe people are just keeping their powder dry until they see what Obama actually puts out, but there had better be some forcible responses. At this point, except for one Congressman from Texas, I have not heard one peep from Republicans.
Republicans in NY appear to be agreeing to an unconstitutional anti-gun law. If Reince Prebuis has a prayer of EVER seeing any money from the rank-and-file the Republicans had better wake up and start acting like our representatives or they need to be primaried!
It won’t be the Republicans impeaching him. They don’t have the cajones to even speak ill of him for fear of being called racist. Face it. We now have a dictator and as long as he is able to steal from the productive to give to the scum, he will be able to stay in power. Welcome to the New America.
Carry on. Buy RGR stock. Buy guns. Buy ammo.
Never happen. The Tyrant in Chief is outta control. We The People have to stop this madness.
I like Ruger so much in addition to my 45LC Bisley Blackhawk and GP-100, I was lucky enough to order, and GET, two SR1911s....I’ve since added ambidextrous safeties from Novak (Ruguer Special), and the large laser etched eagle cocobolo grips.....a pair of very sweet 45s
I think this is an “end justifies the means” moment. I believe the end game is to bring us in line with the U.N. gun control treaty that failed to get through congress. We won’t know for sure until his 19 points come out but I would not be surprised if it is a mirror image to the U.N. Treaty.
It would sure be nice if someone in power in government asked “why in the ‘F’ does the NYT have an open line to the Community Organizer In Chief?”
Enough is enough. This tyrant has no regard for the Constitution or the balance of power. Remove this fool, dear neutered congresscritters, Dem and Pub alike. He respects NONE of you, your voices, or those of the majority of Americans. It’s WAY past time to stop the insanity.
The bastard hasn’t even been sworn in a 2nd time and he’s already going dictator on us.
You little sissy hand wringers need to get out more. You live in a bubble. There are things afoot.
Spray and pray technique being used here ironically. Put 19 EO’s on the table but only get 1 or 2 passed - mission accomplished. Surely some members of Congress have an IQ high enough to see through what’s being done here. I guess the question is - do any of them have the brains or tge balls to stop and question this deception.

Maybe you meant “forceful response” when you wrote “forcible response”??
I don’t know what DC Republicans will do, but it seems to me a number of states and counties should render null & void these unlawful edicts, whether they be from Congress or Obama.
And skillful lawyers for freedom should attack these with legal arguments. Can you believe it? Beck was on the radio this a.m. outlining how these edicts could work and it is totally against all common sense and our nation’s founding.
For instance if you had someone who was victimized by violence such as rape or kidnapping, murder etc and that person sought psychiatric counseling, they could be labeled as “mentally ill” and if they had a weapon it could be confiscated. Their doctor would be obligated to report about their mental state and about whether they owned guns. Or if you had a child needing psychiatric help you had better keep it to yourself and not seek such help for them, because the second it becomes known, if you have a gun in your home you would be forced to relinquish it. Or if a family member with alzheimers moves in to be under your care, well, out has to go your guns. All of this would fall under mental health-related restrictions.
Beck went on and on and that was just one type of situation he raised.
Again, state and local governments need to put the kabosh on this stuff and confront any feds who attempt to “assault” citizens in their homes by showing up and demanding their guns.
Obama has already made domestic gun manufacturers wealthy.
My guess is that these proposed LAWS will generate 10,000+ pages of poorly thought out regulations. Typical lib nonsense
No gun control is going to pass through Congress and Oblahblah does not have the authority to ban tactical rifles and high cap mags by EO. If he tries it he is going to be sorry.
The blowback will be intense. Maybe it will be a good thing if he tries to go too far.
Issuing 19 E. O. s is liks spraying the crowd with an AK-47.
Bought two so far this month and looking for the third!
“pressure on federal agencies to improve sharing of mental health records”
Roe v Wade was a decision that was to protect the (supposed) right to privacy between a doctor and patient. His executive order mandating the elimination of that privacy will effectively dictatorially negate Roe! He is doing what they were projecting was Romney’s end goal.
Idiot libtards never learn!
Whenever I see "comprehensive" in front of "legislation" I know it's bad. And it was a Republican who came up with that doublespeak.
Military’s and socilist leaderships get along great.
Dreamer. There is no way the senate will go with it.
I pray you are correct. This shall not stand. (And I probably do need to get out more.)
I guess government psychiatrist on O’s dole will deem who is “mentally ill” or not. I’m guessing the new national gun registration list will be handed to them and they will work off that list from the gun owners with the largest caches first then move on to the Tea Party list and so on. This sounds an awfully like methods used by tyrants in the past...King Charles, King James II, Hitler, Stalin, Marx, Castro, Mao Tze Tung, Chavez, etc...I see a clear pattern here. When will the liberal idiots with all of their self poclaimed intellectual supremacy finally admit that history always repeats itself and that men never change?
He is the head law inforcer, not the head law maker. That duty is reserved for the House
My SR1911 is equipped with tritium night sights and a Crimson Trace. Awesome gun! I love it! It fits in nicely with my other three Rugers.
I think the key to this is all of this talk about mental health. It must have something to do with Obamacare.. and just think.. if the Democrats and the media get to decide who is crazy, and take their guns away the crazy people..WHO will they pick???
They have already let us know that the NRA, the homeschoolers and the Prepers are on the list, with the”Sandy Hook” coverage.
Who else is “crazy”?
Good point. Usually, these guys don’t pick and choose, they just ram it through. It is only later that we find out what it really said. That seems to be their M.O. but nothing would surprise me at this point.
Broad authority to regulate firearms was given to the Executive branch by the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968. Under these statutes the Fed established the BATFE, which issues ongoing rulings about administrative questions as they arise, such as "Does this [insert device name here] constitute an NFA weapon under Federal law?"
I suspect that the President does have broad authority under these acts to provide direction to BATFE about how he wants the laws administered, such as (for example) putting all weapons that are cosmetically similar to military rifles on the NFA list, making them subject to federal registration and a $200 transfer tax.
So yeah, I think he can do this. More importantly, HE thinks he can do this. Whether he's right or not will be for the courts to decide, most likely several years from now.
Like I said he can try but its going to be his undoing. Obama is no different from Stalin or Mao. They think there is no line in the sand. Guns are the line in the sand here.
Perhaps, but I hope not. Both of those guys were in power for a very long time.
I move that we limit EOs to no more than seven per term, if it’s good for ammunition, it should be good for the far more dangerous EOs
“Militarys and socialist leaderships get along great.”
Our military does not get along with this government and they are starting to rumble ominously. BTW even Harry Reid is strongly back peddling on a assault weapons ban or other forms of gun control. Just heard him on CNN. I bet he has been given the “Dutch Uncle’s” talk too.
He’s issuing 19 EOs and I have a 20 round magazine. Coincidence? I think not.
I love Ruger
LCP in .380
Vaquero in .44 mag
Ruger .44 carbine
Model 77 in .308W
Not that I own those Rugers of course, that would be excessive. Right.
Too bad. I bought 3 100 round boxes of 40 cal, 4 50 round boxes of 45. They had plenty of 270, 30-06, 308, and shot gun ammo but were out of 223. Walmart will continue to sell guns and ammo. The clerk mentioned they can't sell what they can't buy. There is a major back order for some ammo. That is good in a way. The citizen patriot is becoming armed to the teeth.
Saturday, January 19th at noon at your state capitol.
Show up en masse.
No excuses. No hoping that others will attend so that you don't have to.
Edwin Meese just came out and said Obama could be impeached if he tries to enact gun control by EO. He does not have the legal authority to do it. That being said I believe he will try it.
Maybe so.... it might be healthy to gauge the level of resolve.
In the Soviet Union they labeled just about any opponent to the regime mentally ill and sent them off for “treatment.”
Ya got that right. Including 1000 pages of pork for cronys.
he has no such authority
he knows he has no such authority
so, what’s he really trying to do?
Yep- I notice the rhetoric from the Chris Matthews fans is that all Republicans are crazy- mentally ill. And the Republicans who hold office help them shape this opinion.
Exactly. This is going to be a dog and pony show for the cameras and the 50.1% who voted for them to show he cares. In reality, nothing will pass Congress and any attempt to direct Federal agencies to start seizing guns would be a disaster.
