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.
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."

If Hussein actually tries to enact gun control through any EO type orders, and Congress doesn’t stand up to him for this, and we don’t stand up to them all, it really is over. He will have usurped the role of Congress and the judiciary both. The state, it will be Hussein. I wouldn’t think they’d all just stand aside for this, but who can say after everything we’ve seen?
Impeach the bastard!!!!!!
Biden: ‘The President Is Already Lining Up Some Additional Executive Actions’ for Guns
Well, DUH! I read the comments and frankly, I’m surprized no one else has commented on the fact that B. Hussein has already put into play the means to grab guns if legal means didn’t work.
Doesn’t anyone else remember how Homeland Security is stockpiling millions of guns, weapons, ammo, drones and more?
3 guesses as to what they plan to do with this.
We need a new law that says we must obey all of the other laws. That should fix it.
Congress will do nothing... They will be absolutely crucified in the press if they oppose him and he knows it.
Are we still in America?
Welcome to post-constitutional America.
We are going to find that is going to be the ONLY workable solution to dealing these MarxoFascists.
And if we don’t, sometime soon - in a misery none of can yet imagine, we are all going to wish someone had at least tried - when there was still a chance to stop what they are going to achieve.
“Give me Liberty or give me death.”
Well can’t they at least see that if he can take away our Second Amendment rights by diktat, that he can do the same with their freedom of the press? They may not believe it now, but a day will come when what they want or need to report will clash with what he wants them to report.
Of course! If ZerO can’t get what he wants the Constitutional way, he’ll just break the law!
As horrendous as it would be, it may turn out open CW could be the only viable option for the survival of America. Heaven help us; I hope not.
.Uphold the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Rule of Law.
.Tell everyone the complete unfiltered truth about Benghasi
.Provide freely all information about Fast and Furious
.Quit blaming the GOP and conservatives for everything
.Quit campaigning on every issue he intends to shove down our throats
.Work on eliminating duplicate offices / government agencies and submitting some kind of REAL budget to Americans
.Quit persecuting Christians in the USA (have a national prayer day)
.Quit causing racial divide and class warfare
.Quit taking vacations on the taxpayers dime that are exhorbitently expensive
.Get off his butt and help businesses in America create jobs for the millions of unemployed
.Quit giving away entitlements to people who are scamming, who aren't citizens, and who could be working real jobs if there were any real jobs
I don’t think they were voted on at all. And there were about 22 more amendments.
Sometimes I think they do this purposely. You have it, no you don't, yes you do, etc. We have a suspect, no we don't, yes we do, no we don't, yes we do but he's being sent home on the next plane.
How many times have they done this on various things, till your head is swimming, and is that the objective?
Considering the billions of rounds of hollow-point ammo DHS and the Alphabets have stored up for themselves, the refusal to answer direct questions about using armed drones on American citizens, the militarization of DHS and the very real hatred Obama and his ideological adherents have for us ‘right wing domestic terrorists’ - believe you me - giving us death is precisely what they have in mind for us.
Such is the legacy of their ideology.
Too bad most of us assumed it couldn’t happen here.
sure picked the right cipher in Obama.
They spent decades setting up white guilt to the point that any hint of an accusation of racism is enough for us to shut up and not challenge them.
I think a lot of people (not on FR) are like boiling frogs. Even before Obama our liberties were taken away; small at first, State by State (and a lot started locally) then Federally. New “social responsibilities” were imposed the same way. These were all presented as “for the good” and so were accepted by most. That’s when the water tempature was just warming. Obama turned the heat onto high; it’s something new everyday. Some are just wondering “how did this happen? jump the kettle!” It was the communist plan.
And there are still scads of deniers, even here on this board.
Looks like Biden and Obama have as much respect for Congress as they do for the Constitution. Just run ‘em over, right? Liberals are so thuggy.
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”.
Yes well he sees himself as a king, not a president.
His word rules.
And that’s what’s so bewildering, because we have the actual history of what Leftist ideologies like Obama have done when they have achieved the same levels of power over a nation.
How and why even people here will not allow themselves to think that the destruction and mass elimination of any opposition to MarxoFascism is the plan being implement before our eyes can only be attributed to the fact the majority in this country have a fatal case of Normalcy Bias.
>>Assuming there are executive actions that can be taken, why didnt he take action sooner?<<
Obozo wanted to let the legislative process play out. Now, in his mind, he is justified. He must do something to protect our children.
Just my take.
> “...But you know I’ve been around here a long time...” - Biden
Translation: A lot of people in Washington owe me a lot of favors.
“We may soon be taking some actions against this traitor-in-chief....”
I would agree that may be the spark that ignites a revolution - we are not the Brits or Aussies - we will not just lay down....
Then we need to start crucifying the press.
“He must do something to protect our children.”
Then he should ban abortion.
What do you think Barry would do if nobody obeyed his so-called Executive order?
The question is ..Are there enough Senators and Congressmen with the ‘nads to do something about it?
No. Party loyalty trumps everything.
The sad thing is that if the republicans take control of the senate and impeachment is possible, and a republican is elected president in 2016 he’ll say “We need to move forward”. obama and his ilk will get away with all they’ve done and all they’re going to do.
Nope. And expect more school shootings and like incidents. It won’t end until we fight. The other side smells victory.
Just like Clinton did. Based on what happened in 2012, I don’t see the Republicans taking control of the Senate in 2014 and I do not believe that obama will leave the White House when his 2012 to 2016 term expires.
Libs thought the same thing about Bush.
When blood is shed, they will be the ones to draw the first drop from me. But that is all they'll get as far as it's in my power.
But I think that we largely have a coward presidency. If we don't blink, and don't back down, they won't push the issue.
Well, he's not a 'dictator' ya know.
Time to bring out the bumper stickers: “He’s not MY president!!”
NOT SOON ENOUGH!
Someone better put the Boy King on a short leash, because if it turns out to be us, it won’t be pretty.
He never was mine.
Send that one back and get one that’s spelled correctly.
Bloods and Crips?
I don’t get the all the pubbies bowing down to EOs. Everytime he pens one they should defund his entourage...... It makes me sick.
Seems to me Obamas anger is contrived.
No, it’s real. He’s not getting his way. Now comes the revenge.
I bought my AR-15 to stop those who want to take my AR-15.
No, actually. EOs are normally used to provide direction in the areas where the executive branch already has discretion, either inherently or via powers granted by Congress. The little-used "confirmation" of EOs by Congress (in actually, only used to un-confirm, so to speak, everything else is just left without comment or action) would allow Congress to object if it thinks the President is overstepping his authority.
