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.
