Biden: 'The President Is Already Lining Up Some Additional Executive Actions' for Guns
Weekly Standard ^ | 4/18/13 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 04/18/2013 12:33:11 PM PDT by Nachum

Joe Biden says the president of the United States is preparing to take "executive actions" to deal with guns.

BuzzFeed reports:

Vice President Biden told White House allies in the gun control fight Thursday that President Obama will be announcing new executive actions on gun violence in the days after the Senate voted down a gun violence bill.

On a conference call with "stakeholders," Biden told gun control advocates that the fight is not over and that eventual action on gun control will come. Press were not invited to the conference call; a participant provided BuzzFeed with access.

"Look I know you're going to say that I'm just being an optimist and I'm trying to put a good face on this. But you know I've been around here a long time and we've already done, because of you, some really good things," Biden said. "Number one, the president is already lining up some additional executive actions he's going to be taking later this week."

Reid has officially pulled the gun control bill. As of now it is dead or at least unconscious.

I thought the executive orders were for things of an emergency nature, used until congress could pass a law on same.

Everything with this administration is an "executive order".

He is going to eo gun control..I hope I am wrong..if he does..the House MUST impeach the man-child..the Constitution does not give the President an eraser so that he can omit amendments to suit his wishes..if we don’t stop him now, what next?..the 22nd amendment?..stay in office for life?..

It sounds like the king is trying to exert his will on the people, whether we want it or not.

Somebody punch my arm. Are we still in America?

Were there two other amendments that were supposed to be voted on today? If so, I assume both of those were voted down as well?

Good. Then he can finally be impeached for violating his oath of office as well as a host of other charges.

Here’s a thought, how about an EO ordering the Executive branch to enforce the laws already on the books.

Surprisingly, a pro-2nd Amendment amendment that protects state CHL holders' privacy from the federal government passed by a high percentage.

Any E.O. infringing upon the 2nd Amendment, without Consent of Congress or representation of the people is an impeachable offense of the highest order.

Both amendments passed. One was favorable to gun owners (it penalized states for giving up information), the other was just money for mental health care.

The amendments mean nothing if the bill doesn't pass, and the bill is being withdrawn from further consideration.

How about no parole for violent offenders? And no plea bargains either?

Gee, why do I think we won’t see those?

Assuming there are executive actions that can be taken, why didn’t he take action sooner?

If I weren’t so unsure of the “will of the people” anymore, I’d almost wish he would try it. IF, I trusted enough people would give a damn a revolution just might be in order.

Seems to me Obama’s anger is contrived. I think he is trying to whip up the base for mid-term elections. I think the Dems fear another 2010 type groundswell and are trying to create their own.

Just my opinion.

Even if BiteMe was lying, the fact that it's so believable shows everyone knows this is typical of the man.
We are dealing with a CIC who has no love, loyalty or even respect for the Constitution!

On election day I fell into a depressive funk; like going into mourning for the country. It now seems I was being optimistic.

Am not surprised at all by this....but I do think he'll find there's only so far he can go...still, he'll likely do something illegal regardless of the consequences...he does seem to be exempt from those.

Well nobody has lifted a finger to stop him yet. What on earth would make him think anyone will stop him going forward (pardon pun).

Talk is cheap. It’s been waaay past the just talking stage for some time now. Getting close to the “put up or shut up (or you will be shut up)” point.

Wouldn’t EOs be better since they go away with the President whereas a bill is forever. Heck as disorganized as the federal government is, these EOs will not eve be implemented by the time Obama leaves.

I’m from Kansas. If Congress paased a law we were going to hold the Feds accountable if they tried to override our 2nd Amendment rights. If some excutive action comes down it is lock and load time.

There are a lot of things that he could do by EO that wouldn’t be writing new laws, but which could make the situation unbearable for shooters.

Executive actions can be done without any additional enabling statute. So, if there was somehting he could do without Congress, why didn't he do it before?

And now, especially after losing - if there are things he can do without Congress, why didn't he do them?

There are things he could do, too. The feds prosecute a minute fraction of felony possesion charges. He can order the DOJ to prosecute them.
