Posted on 01/31/2014 7:42:59 AM PST by rktman
Attorney General Eric Holder said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing today that President Obama is open to using an executive action to push through gun-control and/or associated mental health measures that havent found approval in Congress.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), one of the top proponents of new gun-control measures in Congress, noted that Obama only made a very brief reference to gun violence in his State of the Union address.
But I hope, and I hope you will join me in the view that the president remains completely committed to ending gun violence in this country, adopting common sense sensible measures like background checks and mental health initiatives; a ban on straw purchases and illegal trafficking, Blumenthal said to Holder at the Justice Department oversight hearing.

So - 0bama’s son’s will line up in Chi-Congo to turn in their guns. Spiffy.
"Gun violence" is how government gets its way.
Look for a LOT of non-complience.
a ban on straw purchases and illegal trafficking, Blumenthal said to Holder
Hey now, that’s already illegal, guess more laws
will make it even more illegal huh.
One toke over the line...
BO can stick his EO up his B-HO
Kind of like a murder charge suddenly becoming much, much more serious due to hate playing a part. HUH?
Why doesn't the HOR refuse to fund the implementation of Obama's executive orders? And for heaven's sake, stop talking about selling out and cashing in on the invasion of the US.
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!

Yes, we do still have that commitment, Holder responded, adding that if the American people, legislators, members of Congress, had had the ability to be with me when he visited the scene of the Newtown shooting to walk through those classrooms and see the caked blood, to see the tufts of carpet that I didnt quite understand when I first saw it the carpet picked up. And then I realized that that was those were bullets where bullets had gone through and picked up the carpet. If people had seen the crime scene search pictures of those little angels, I suspect that the outcome of our that effort that we mounted last year would have been different.
Too bad Holder and the rest of the baby killers don’t feel this way about abortion.
Also, maybe we could take them on a tour of the former country of East Germany and show them what happens when the sheeple are disarmed. Heck, maybe he could accompany Rodman on his next trip to North Korea.
BTW did anyone else catch the irony in Holder threatening EO to address illegal gun trafficking?
What if the orders that are NOT in law are ignored?
We can only blame ourselves if we don't slap him down.
America is sinking deeper in a dictatorship. Fear the entire communists Administration and most of the military including your police.

I’m a Minuteman. Let me know!
That’s a pretty nervous tic.
***”..background checks and mental health initiatives; a ban on straw purchases and illegal trafficking,***
Problem solved in 1968.
“Today we begin to disarm the criminal and the careless and the insane. All of our people who are deeply concerned in this country about law and order should hail this day.
- Lyndon Johnson when he signed the 1968 GCA into law.
What he means by banning straw purchases is to ban the people from buying the gun and gifting it to anyone.
You got it.
Oh and straw purchases and illicit trafficing,
wasn’t that what the ATF was doing just recently.
You know that too.
Come and take it.
I think that comes under States Rights!
Executive orders only has juristiction within agencies of the federal govt, not the general public, state govts or agencies, private or commercial entities or individuals.
Those guys are “wannabes” The first time they have one of their buddies brains splattered all over them from a long range shot ,they will rethink what they are doing.
Mental defective who should be disarmed: anyone who voted against Obama. It just stands to reason, comrade.
Real world: any NY resident who ever consulted a mental health professional must turn in his state FOID & surrender his firearms.
It’s come to this.
Yes. But gun confiscation will look a lot like that as well.
On the bright side, look at how many resources it took them to not thoroughly secure one town. I was actually encouraged by that.
Will he use executive action combined with Obamacare to take guns ?
Politicians generally resort to labeling something as a "common sense" when they can't provide any logical justification. "Common sense sensible measures" sounds like something that will make absolutely no sense to anyone but Kool-Aide drinkers/low-information voters.
Government is the greediest, most corrupt and murderous force on Earth.
A consideration that guided our Founding Fathers.
“Too bad Holder and the rest of the baby killers dont feel this way about abortion.”
Or Ruby Ridge.
“Look for a LOT of non-complience.”
I expect most of the illegal gun demands will happen at a couple levels above the consumer.
Only 50K of the estimated 500K affected rifles were registered - I suspect similar ratios in New York and other Commie states.
THAT'S what has them so pissed - non-compliance (by the non-sheep).
“ban on illegal trafficking”
Yeah, you know a little something about that eh AHOLE? ;)
Hahaha let’s see how far IRANIAN AGENT Soebarkah gets seizing guns.
Seen his scalp lately?
I’m changing my guess from ‘Indonesian with hair plugs’ to ‘Indonesian with shaved head and theatrical latex-substrate synthetic afro panels.’
Aka theatrical wig.
Notice all those scars around his head? Those are SEAMS where they blend each section into the next.
This is most obvious at his Right temple. His entire temple hairline is edged by a piece of latex covered in makeup.
You can see it.
Great leader is ready for some ‘meaningful action’ of guns? Hmmm... Nothing I can say after this could not be construed as a threat, so I’ll just say there is a certain ambiguity at work in this idea.
My question is this: What sort of executive orders do you think he can issue that will effect the “right to keep and bear arms” more than they already have?
I mean the ‘rumors’ have it that most of the ammunition being produced is being bought up by various Fed agencies. The EPA finally shut down the last lead mine and smelter. The armed forces are being forced to go to ‘green ammunition’.
So what’s next?
Does that include straw purchases to Cartels Holder facilitated, Bloomenthal?
BTW...the pixel 'height' parameter of this graphic is 300...for a reason.
So, OMama is going to use Holder to try and play Pen the Donkey on the Tail is he?
Well, good luck with that.
Who Really is Barak Hussein Obama
Only there will be nobody home..........
Sierra bullets response on the lead smelter:
Hmmmmm. Cause you couldn’t do 45-70? :>}
